- AUM in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, the firm’s largest holding, has decreased from $43.5 billion to $30.4 billion, a 30% decline during this time. The AUM of its second-biggest holding, the Grayscale Ethereum Trust, declined from almost $15 billion to $11.6 billion, a 22% drop.
- These decreases come as bitcoin and other crypto prices have fallen in recent weeks. But the total AUM also represents a roughly 170% increase over its $16.4 billion in holdings a year ago, reflecting a growing interest in cryptocurrency.
- Grayscale’s portfolio compared to a year ago is wider-ranging with the addition of multiple trust offerings earlier this year, including Chainlink’s LINK token, Brave’s BAT and MANA, the money for virtual world Decentraland.
- New York-based Grayscale is owned by Digital Currency Group, the parent company of CoinDesk.
