Subsequently, this development echoes a preceding initiative by Bitwise, another front-runner in the spot Bitcoin ETF market. Earlier in January, Bitwise set a precedent by revealing its digital wallet address, making its holdings and flows publicly visible. This gesture of transparency was well-received, drawing praise from industry insiders and the broader crypto community.

Bitwise also pledged to donate 10% of its spot Bitcoin ETF profits back into the industry. Therefore, it signifies a commitment to the sector’s growth and sustainability.
