Grayscale’s Large Cap Fund Now Includes Polygon (MATIC)


  • Bitcoin (BTC) now accounts for 65.12% of the $193 million fund.
  • The fund decided to sell its holdings in XRP after the Ripple lawsuit.

As part of its quarterly rebalance, top cryptocurrency asset management Grayscale has announced that it would now support Polygon (MATIC) in its large-cap cryptocurrency portfolio. In February 2018, Grayscale, a division of the massive venture capital firm Digital Currency Group, released a large-cap fund. One of the goals of the fund is to provide investors access to the most liquid cryptocurrencies. Five different digital currencies were available at the launch.

Solana (SOL), one of the leading “Ethereum killers,” was contained in the aforementioned fund last October. Cardano (ADA) joined the fund’s holdings in July of last year. Bitcoin (BTC) now accounts for 65.12% of the $193 million fund after the most recent rebalance.

In third place, with 2.49 percent, is ADA, well behind the head, and Ethereum (ETH), which takes second place with 28.25 percent. The most unused participant, MATIC, accounts for 1.25 percent.

As part of their earlier rebalance, Grayscale eliminated Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), and Chainlink (LINK). After Ripple was sued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in January, the fund decided to sell its holdings in XRP.

Major cryptocurrencies have suffered large losses owing to macroeconomic challenges, leaving investors who placed money into the fund a year ago down 65.2% over the previous 24 hours. Only 21.9% of the initial capital has been returned to investors.

The U.S. unemployment figures discharged on Friday, October 7 prompted investors to dump cryptocurrencies. But XRP from Ripple has been looking up, and it’s up 8% in the past day as per data from CMC.
