U.K.-based analytics company Skew, focused on crypto derivatives, has shared a chart that shows that Grayscale Bitcoin Trust shares are now trading at a higher premium than the day before.
Grayscale BTC premium rises: good but not good enough
Asset premium is the difference between where an asset (Grayscale Bitcoin Trust shares in this case) is trading on the market compared to the price of the underlying asset (Bitcoin).
When the premium rises, the asset becomes overbought. It reverses when the premium declines.
When the premium is high, investors tend to lock in their profits. When the premium is low, buyers become active.
On Wednesday, Feb. 24, the GBTC premium went below zero for the first time since 2015. But now, GBTC is trading 5.54 percent higher than the NAV (net asset value).
Grayscale adds $0.6 billion in a single day
