Yesterday Grayscale reported via Twitter that the total value of crypto assets managed by the company reached USD 6.5 billion for the first time. However, a report today revealed that the company did not keep pace with the market during October.
On Monday Grayscale reported on Twitter that it had reached the $ 6.5 billion mark in crypto for the first time; Its main product being the Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), which exceeds USD 5.4 billion.
Overall, the company enjoyed an excellent third quarter after attracting more than $ 1 billion in assets. However, not everything is perfect.
Just today CryptoCompare released a report highlighting that, overall, “Grayscale products underperformed the market.”
Certainly, in terms of size, Grayscale is the market leader for exchange-traded crypto products, or ETPs. For those who do not know the term, they consist of investments for those who want to expose themselves to the asset, in this case crypto, but do not want to be responsible for maintaining or storing it.
Thus, despite Grayscale being the market cap leader, it had the worst performance in October. Specifically, ETC Group and WisdomTree’s ETPs outperformed crypto markets for the previous 30 days, gaining 7.7% and 7.3%, respectively, compared to a 6.6% improvement in the crypto market.
Yes, that means that the investors of those ETPs obtained higher returns than they would have obtained by investing in the crypto itself. Even despite the fees they must pay for the service.

This happened during DEC FinTech Week 2020 where Brooks suggested banks adapt or die. As they are unlikely to die, Brooks sees a future where banks are connected “Directly to the blockchains, where they will see it as a payment network and will become nodes of that network”.
