Grayscale amount of BTC and altcoins rises in price

Over the weekend, Barry Silbert’s DCG subsidiary Grayscale has added $2 billion to the value of their Bitcoin, Ethereum, LINK, Livepeer, Zcash, Litecoin, etc., apart from BAT, as per the table shared by the company in the tweet.

Bitcoin has recaptured the $40,000 level and now Bitcoin and other cryptos Grayscale holds in its trusts are worth more.

Investors continue withdrawing funds

Grayscale demands that investors lock their Bitcoin-based shares (GBTC) bought in the company for a period of six months. After that they are allowed to sell them in free markets.

Data provided by the Bybt analytics service shows that withdrawals from Grayscale trusts continue. Only Litecoin and Livepeer have seen inflows on a monthly, weekly and a 24 hour-basis.

As for the other assets, investors have been mostly withdrawing their shares, apart from ZEC and the recently added crypto trusts of FIL, LINK, LPT (monthly and weekly data) and MANA (on a monthly basis).

Meanwhile, GBTC continues trading at a discount of 11.27 percent. No inflows have been noticed since Bitcoin Trust does not accept them at the moment.
