“We are excited to welcome Cardano to our Digital Large Cap Fund’s portfolio as we work to ensure that our diversified Fund can safely hold assets that collectively comprise 70% of the entire digital asset market,” said Edward McGee, Vice President of Finance at Grayscale. “Digital currencies represent a unique opportunity for investors to diversify their portfolios, and at Grayscale, we are proud to provide our investors with access to leading digital currencies through regulated, familiar product offerings.”
Cardano is a smart contract platform created by Charles Hoskinson, a co-founder of Ethereum. Informed by academic research, Cardano aims to improve upon the scalability, security, and efficiency of Ethereum by using a novel proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism called Ouroboros. ADA is the native token of the Cardano network that allows holders to engage in peer-to-peer transactions and stake as collateral to contribute to the network’s consensus mechanism.
At the end of the day on July 1, 2021, the Fund Components were a basket of 67.47% Bitcoin (BTC), 25.39% Ethereum (ETH), 4.26% Cardano (ADA), 1.03% Bitcoin Cash (BCH), 0.99% Litecoin (LTC), and 0.86% Chainlink (LINK) and each Share represented 0.00044919 Bitcoin (BTC), 0.00263059 Ethereum (ETH), 0.71069603 Cardano (ADA), 0.0046159 Bitcoin Cash (BCH), 0.00160755 Litecoin (LTC), and 0.01053027 Chainlink (LINK). The Fund does not generate any income and regularly distributes Fund Components to pay for its ongoing expenses. Therefore, the amount of Fund Components represented by each Share gradually decreases over time.
About Grayscale® Digital Large Cap Fund
Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund enables investors to gain exposure to a market-cap weighted portfolio of large-cap digital currencies through a singular investment vehicle without the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping digital currencies directly. Through a rules-based portfolio construction methodology, the Fund targets coverage of the upper 70% of the digital currency market and is re-evaluated each quarter; however, the weightings of each Fund Component change daily and are published around 4:00 p.m. NY-time.* Investors can obtain real time visibility into the daily performance and composition of the Fund through the TradeBlock Grayscale Digital Large Cap Index (DLCX): https://tradeblock.com/markets/dlcx.
The Fund’s investment objective is for its Shares to reflect the value of Fund Components held by the Fund, less its expenses and other liabilities. To date, the Fund has not met its investment objective and the Shares quoted on OTCQX have not reflected the value of Fund Components held by the Fund, less the Fund’s expenses and other liabilities, but instead have traded at both premiums and discounts to such value, with variations that have at time been substantial.
The Fund is an investment vehicle with Shares titled in the investors name, providing a familiar structure for financial and tax advisors and easy transferability to beneficiaries under estate laws. Additionally, Shares are eligible to be held in certain IRA, Roth IRA, and other brokerage and investor accounts.
