Among the shares you’ll be owning a slice of are crypto mining hardware manufacturer Canaan, crypto trading platform Coinbase, crypto bank Silvergate, and crypto mining company Riot Blockchain.

In respect to Coinbase, it is a leading trading platform that boasts that approximately 89 million verified users, 11,000 institutions, and 185,000 ecosystem partners in over 100 countries that trust it to invest, spend, save, earn, and use crypto.

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

A second ETF for ASX investors to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF.

With the cyber threat increasing each year, spending on cybersecurity services is predicted to increase to almost US$250 billion by 2023. This bodes well for the companies included in the HACK ETF, which are working to reduce the impact of cybercrime globally.

Among the companies you’ll be owning a slice of are Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Fortinet, Okta, and Splunk.
