Grayscale Removes ADA and ATOM Tokens in Fund Adjustment

Grayscale, the world’s largest crypto-focused asset manager, announced the removal of Cardano’s ADA token from its Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (GDLC) and Cosmos’ ATOM token from its Grayscale Smart Contract Platform Ex-Ethereum Fund (GSCPxE). The decision was part of Grayscale’s quarterly fund rebalancing, aimed at optimizing portfolio performance.

Quarterly Rebalancing

According to Grayscale, the proceeds generated from selling ADA and ATOM tokens were reinvested into existing fund components. This strategic move is in line with Grayscale’s objective of maintaining a diversified portfolio and maximizing returns for investors.

New Fund Composition

After the removal of ADA, Grayscale’s large-cap fund now comprises 70.96% Bitcoin (BTC), 21.84% Ether (ETH), 4.52% Solana (SOL), 1.73% XRP, and 0.95% Avalanche (AVAX). Meanwhile, the smart contract platform fund now holds 58.41% Solana, 14.56% Cardano, 12.25% Avalanche, 8.53% Polkadot (DOT), and 6.25% Polygon (MATIC), following the exclusion of ATOM.

Grayscale’s Crypto Investment Strategy

Grayscale recently announced a new investment fund, the Grayscale Dynamic Income Fund, which prioritizes cryptocurrencies with staking rewards. This fund is exclusively available to clients with significant assets under management or a high net worth, indicating Grayscale’s commitment to serving sophisticated investors.

Performance of ADA and ATOM

ADA and ATOM have delivered negative returns year-to-date, with ADA falling 8.1% and ATOM declining over 3.3%. Both tokens significantly underperformed Bitcoin and Ether, which recorded impressive gains of 59% and over 40%, respectively, since the beginning of the year.

Grayscale’s decision to remove ADA and ATOM from its funds reflects its commitment to optimizing portfolio performance and adapting to market conditions.
