Brazilian asset manager QR Capital’s DeFi exchange-traded fund (ETF) started trading on the Brazil stock exchange on Tuesday.

  • Under the ticker QDFI11, the DeFi ETF follows the Bloomberg Galaxy DeFi index, which has nine protocols: Uniswap (UNI), Aave (AAVE), MakerDao (MKR), Compound (COMP), yearn.finance (YFI), SushiSwap (SUSHI), 0X (ZRX), Synthetix (SNX) and Curve (CRV).
  • QDFI11 is the first DeFi ETF to be listed on B3, where it traded at an initial price of 10 Brazilian reals. The product is open to the public and has a management fee of 0.9% per year.
  • In addition to QDFI11, QR has a bitcoin ETF and an ether ETF listed on B3. “Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs were just the entrance to a much richer and more diverse investment universe,” QR Capital CEO Fernando Carvalho said in a statement.
  • In January, QR’s main competitor, Brazil-based crypto asset manager Hashdex, announced plans to release an ETF following 12 DeFi tokens on the Brazilian stock exchange B3 on Feb. 17.
