Grayscale Hopes to Poach Institutional Clients From Coinbase

Earlier this week, reports revealed that Coinbase is shutting down its market-cap-weighted index fund targeted at accredited investors after raising less than the firm expected.

In the wake of these reports, Barry Silbert, the founder of Grayscale Investments, a crypto-focused investment fund, seized the opportunity to make it known that Grayscale’s Digital Large Cap Fund is still accepting new individual and institutional investors.

The Digital Large Cap Fund is a market cap-weighted portfolio of large-cap digital assets, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC). The fund undergoes quarterly rebalances, for which the Grayscale team charges a 3% management fee.

According to Grayscale’s latest portfolio update, the Digital Large Cap Fund currently holds $11.8 million in net assets with 2,621,000 shares outstanding. There is no indication as to how many institutional investors currently have capital invested in the fund, but the loss of a competitor like the Coinbase Index Fund will likely work in favor of Grayscale.
