Grayscale Investments files with the SEC to make a reporting company out of its diversified large-cap fund.
Grayscale Investments announced today the public filing of a Registration Statement on Form 10 with the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The move was done on behalf of Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (GDLC). The voluntary filing is subject to SEC review and is the third investment fund of Grayscale’s to be registered as a reporting company with the SEC.
The Digital Large Cap Fund’s goal is to hold large-cap crypto assets together to make up 70% of the virtual asset market. The fund intends to hold on to a market capitalization-weighted portfolio, which is under quarterly review for rebalancing to meet the target coverage ratio.
The fund is an investment vehicle that gives investors the ability to partake in asset allocations using the fund’s shares. The filing goes along with Grayscale’s commitment to moving the GDLC through the product pipeline and eventually launch a digital currency ETF.
If the SEC accepts the registration, the trust will then become subject to Regulation 12A under the U.S. Exchange Act. The 12A Regulation will require regular reporting, but is expected to attract investors with more conservative mindsets. The announcement is also the first step in the journey of making the fund into a publicly-traded asset. This is because a thumbs up from the SEC would also register the shares with the commission.
The GDLC was launched back in 2019 and has since grown nearly 300%. The fund is made up of five different cryptocurrencies including bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC), and Link (LINK).
While the GDLC has been earning well, Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) has not been as fortunate. The GBTC, which has been trading at a discount for months, recorded a record low this week of -20.448%. This means the shares of GBTC are more than 20% less than its net asset value.
According to GDLC, the fund has exceeded $630 million in managed assets, while the Grayscale firm manages over $53 billion in overall assets. Shares of the GDLC are trading on over-the-counter markets, an ATS operating on different regulations than a regular exchange.
