Other than buying it directly, US-based investors have few options to gain exposure to cryptocurrency tokens like bitcoin and ether.

While multiple futures-based bitcoin ETFs launched over the past two months, they come with high tradings costs that could deviate from the underlying return of bitcoin. And the SEC is showing no signs of giving in to allowing a spot-based bitcoin ETF, which would directly own the underlying cryptocurrency similar to gold and silver ETFs.

But there is one way investors can easily gain exposure to cryptocurrencies without buying the coins directly, and that's through individual stocks, according to JPMorgan. Companies like MicroStrategy and Coinbase, among others have significant exposure to the success crypto broadly and bitcoin specifically.

"Such listed companies have become increasingly popular vehicles for investors to get exposure to the crypto industry," JPMorgan said in a note last week.
