Huobi Tech, a Hong Kong-based fund manager, is planning to launch a cryptocurrency-tracking exchange-traded fund (ETF) aimed at retail investors.  

This action follows the city's recent recommendations for the selling of virtual assets, which included a relaxation of restrictions on retail ownership of overseas ETFs.

Huobi Tech increased its tracking efforts to follow bitcoin worth $2 trillion as a result of the relaxation.

Huobi Tech is said to have submitted a strategy for its ETF to the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC).

The ETF would target retail investors with assets of less than HK$8 million ($1 million).
