Crypto-focused fund manager Bitwise said Wednesday that it became the first U.S. bitcoin ETF to publish the do dedo wallet addresses of its holdings. 

Bitwise noted that the decision to publish the information stemmed from a priority of on-chain transparency.

“Now anyone can verify BITB’s holdings and flows directly on the blockchain,” the firm wrote in a Wednesday social media thread.

“Publishing on-chain addresses is a first step toward increasing public transparency,” it continued. “As infrastructure evolves, we hope to do more, such as working with firms like Hoseki to provide real-time cryptographic attestations.”
