Grayscale Ethereum Trust files to become an SEC reporting company amidst the Ethereum bull run.
Listen to article On August 6, Grayscale Ethereum Trust filed to become an SEC reporting company.
Amidst the Ethereum bull run, Grayscale Investments voluntarily decided to make its Ethereum Trust an SEC reporting company.
The company's best known investment product is a Bitcoin Trust that holds around 400,000 Bitcoin.
Its Ethereum Trust currently has 1.9 million ETH in its possession.
Together, this represents $746 million in assets under management.
As with other Grayscale products, Coinbase is acting as a custodian.
"The filing is subject to SEC review; if the Registration Statement becomes effective, it would designate Grayscale Ethereum Trust as the second digital currency investment vehicle to attain the status of a reporting company by the SEC, following Grayscale® Bitcoin Trust as the first."
This would likely present the Trust in a more favorable view to potential institutional investors.
