ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF, the first cryptocurrency-focused exchange-traded fund in the United States, raised $1.1 billion in its first two days of trading this week. Advisers who wish to buy bitcoin directly for clients must first overcome some onerous regulatory barriers; buying a bitcoin-related ETF, on the other hand, is as simple as breathing.

Of course, early Bitcoin investors have made a killing.
