Canadian investment manager Ninepoint Partners LP completed a C$230 million ($180 million) initial public offering, the country’s largest new fund to be based on the cryptocurrency.

The IPO consisted of units sold at $10 apiece, Ninepoint said in a statement. Bitcoin Trust began trading Wednesday on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker BITC-U. Ninepoint’s launch eclipsed that of fund manager CI Financial Corp., which completed a $72 million Bitcoin fund IPO in December.
