Bitcoins: a new asset class?

I guess the Winklevoss, the twins famous for the Facebook lawsuits, have decide to start an Bitcoin ETF. I guess gold is too 20th century as alternative store of wealth. Although I am curios if you can use bitcoins to purchase the bitcoin ETF.

For any of you interested here is Morningstars take

Forget Venezuela Beaver cheese futures, Bitcoin ETF is they way to get rich.
