The Miller Opportunity Trust’s investment objective is to seek “long term growth of capital.†The filing will become effective 60 days after the filing date.

Besides the bitcoin trust, the company offers eight other crypto investment products.

The Miller Opportunity Trust’s SEC filing further explains:

Miller has long been a bitcoin proponent. He said in November last year that every major bank will have exposure to bitcoin, noting that BTC’s volatility decreases are its price increases.
