About The Fund

Not all equity ETFs are created equal. Brian utilizes his extensive experience in several critical disciplines to help his efforts in researching companies that utilize Blockchain technology. These disciplines consist of equity trading & investing, currency & macro portfolio management, Cryptocurrency hedge fund management, technology protocol know-how, and entrepreneurial ventures. The BKC management team brings together all of these disciplines for this actively managed ETF.

The Fund seeks to obtain investment exposure to an actively managed portfolio consisting of equity securities of cryptocurrency-related and other blockchain technology-related companies, but does not invest directly in cryptocurrencies. The REX BKCM ETF is not suitable for all investors. The fund should be utilized only by investors who are willing to assume a high degree of risk and intend to actively monitor and manage their investments in the fund.

BKC Investment Case
BKC Fund Primer
BK2Cents

A note on cryptocurrency & Blockchain technology risk. By virtue of the Fund’s investment in stocks that derive revenue from cryptocurrency-related activities, shareholders may be exposed indirectly to the risks of cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are extremely new and nontraditional assets and a potential shareholder’s ability to evaluate the performance of cryptocurrencies be limited. Digital assets, represented on a decentralized public transaction ledger that is maintained by an open source protocol, are substantively different from traditional assets and investments. The stocks in which the Fund will invest will be subject to the risks associated with blockchain technology, which is a new and relatively untested technology. The risks associated with blockchain technology may not emerge until the technology is widely used.

There is little regulation of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology other than the intrinsic public nature of the blockchain system. Any future regulatory developments could affect the viability and expansion of the use of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology systems may operate across many national boundaries and regulatory jurisdictions; therefore, cryptocurrency and blockchain technology may be subject to widespread and inconsistent regulation.

Currently, there are few public companies where blockchain technology represents an attributable and significant revenue stream. Blockchain technology may never develop optimized transactional processes that lead to increased realized economic returns to any company in which the fund invests.

Generally, cryptocurrency and blockchain technology is not a product or service that provides identifiable revenue for companies that implement or otherwise use it. Therefore, the values of the stocks in which the fund will invest may not be a reflection of their connection to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, but may be based on other business operations.

Cryptocurrency Risk. By virtue of the Fund’s investment in stocks that derive revenue from cryptocurrency-related activities, shareholders may be exposed indirectly to the risks of cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are extremely new and nontraditional assets and a potential shareholder’s ability to evaluate the performance of cryptocurrencies be limited. Digital assets, represented on a decentralized public transaction ledger that is maintained by an open source protocol, are substantively different from traditional assets and investments. Because if the complex nature of cryptocurrency, an investor in the Fund may face numerous material risks that may not be present in other investments. Current IRS guidance indicates that digital assets such as cryptocurrencies should be treated and taxed as property, and that transactions involving the payment of cryptocurrency for goods and services should be treated as barter transactions. This treatment may create a potential tax reporting requirement in any circumstance where the ownership of a cryptocurrency passes from one person to another.

Blockchain Technology Risk. The stocks in which the Fund will invest will be subject to the risks associated with blockchain technology, which is a new and relatively untested technology. The risks associated with blockchain technology may not emerge until the technology is widely used. Blockchain systems could be vulnerable to fraud, particularly if a significant minority of participants colluded to defraud the rest. Access to a given blockchain requires an individualized key, which, if compromised, could result in loss due to theft, destruction or inaccessibility.

An investment in the Fund in is subject to risks including loss of principal. There can be no assurance the Fund will achieve it's investment objectives. The Fund can be more volatile than broad market averages. Additional risks for the Fund include: emerging markets risk, foreign securities risk, geographic risk, geopolitical risk, liquidity risk, non-diversification risk, technology risk, and valuation risk. For a complete description of these risk please read the prospectus carefully.
