What's new? Ark Invest’s founder and CEO, Cathie Wood, did not invest in the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy (ETF) stock fund on opening day, Business Insider reports.

Wood said about the ETF’s debut:

“No, we did not. We’re looking at this very carefully … there are some tax ramifications we’d like to understand more having to do with contango versus more normal backwardation.”
