The investment objective of the Bitcoin Investment Trust is for the registered Shares to reflect the performance of the value of a bitcoin, before liabilities and expenses of the Trust, as represented by the TradeBlock XBX Index. Initially launched as a private investment vehicle in September 2013, the Trust is not actively managed, and expects to list on the NYSE Arca.

The registration statement relating to the registered Shares has been filed with the SEC but has not yet been declared effective. The registered Shares may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the registered Shares, nor shall there be any sale of the registered Shares in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
