Before you can invest in any cryptocurrency-related funds on Fidelity, you will need to sign the Designated Investments Agreement.
This type of agreement is beneficial for both the investor and the financial institution, as it allows each party to be clear on their expectations and responsibilities.

Review and execute the Designated Investments Agreement, and review or update your Investment Objective. If you do not agree to the terms of the agreement and review the important information, you may not purchase this security.

Once the agreement is signed, Fidelity will follow up with this message. You can then finalize and and submit your order to Fidelity for processing.
