ETF centered around crypto and the digital economy prepares for launch

First Trust Exchange Traded Fund is preparing to launch the First Trust SkyBridge Crypto Industry and Digital Economy ETF. The ETF will directly provide exposure to stocks involved in crypto mining, crypto equipment suppliers, online digital banking services, online software services as well as other areas.
