Grayscale runs several trusts which the company uses to procure cryptocurrencies and trade the trust shares publicly.
Grayscale’s Bitcoin trust, founded in 2013, is one of the largest Bitcoin trusts with the total value assets exceeding 9.8 billion. It is the first publicly quoted investment tool that provides investors an opportunity to get BTC exposure without being susceptible to underlying risks.
With BTC price rallying, the purchases are highly-priced, thus increasing the fees of the trust. Grayscale purchases around 7188 Bitcoin in a single day, showcasing that the company is highly inclined towards Bitcoin. With over 15,000 bitcoin added to its reserve, the total stakes of the company in bitcoin is much higher than any other holder. It is interesting to note that only 27,881 Bitcoin were mined last month, which is much lesser than the bitcoin purchased by Grayscale.
Grayscale Bitcoin trust has more than 481,700 Bitcoin, which is around 62% of the total bitcoin held by publicly traded companies.
Right now, Grayscale is the largest BTC custodian and largely focuses on providing bitcoin exposure to its clients. With a larger number of high net worth individual and institutional entities aligning their financial goals with Bitcoin, it is evident that Grayscale is flocking more bitcoin with a long term perspective.
