Though ETF is a term that is often used with cryptocurrency, it is not of this area. ETF or exchange-traded fund is an instrument for investment that tracks the underlying value of a security. ETF allows the assets to be listed in the regular stock market.
Generally speaking, it is the channel between the asset and the stock exchange.
