United States Bitcoin and Treasury Investment Trust Files S-1 Registration Statement With SEC

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wilshire
Phoenix Funds, LLC
, an investment management firm dedicated to
helping its clients manage assets throughout the investment lifecycle
and sponsor of the United States Bitcoin and Treasury Investment Trust
(the “Trust”) announced today that the Trust has filed a registration
statement on Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission
relating to the proposed initial public offering of its common shares.
The purpose of the Trust is to seek to provide investors with exposure
to Bitcoin in a manner that is more efficient, convenient and less
volatile than purchasing stand-alone Bitcoin. The Trust will have no
assets other than (a) bitcoin, (b) short-term duration United States
Treasury Bills and/or (c) U.S. dollars, in proportions that seek to
closely replicate the exposure of a custom index to Bitcoin.

The number of common shares to be offered and the price range for the
proposed offering have not yet been determined. In connection with the
offering, the Trust intends to apply to list its common stock on a U.S.
stock exchange. An electronic version of the registration statement can
be accessed through the SEC’s website at https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1750145/000091957419000279/d8050549a_s-1.htm.

The offering of shares of the Trust will be made only by means of a
prospectus. A copy of the preliminary prospectus, when available, may be
obtained by mail from Wilshire Phoenix Funds, LLC, 2 Park Avenue, 20th
Floor, New York, New York 10016, or by emailing funds@wilshirephoenix.com.

The registration statement relating to these securities has been filed
with the SEC but has not yet been declared effective. These securities
may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the
registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not
constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these
securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state
or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be
unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities
laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
