Grayscale rebalanced Defi funds for the second time since the inception in July 2021 and also adjusted the weighting of the digital large-cap fund as we are reading more in our latest cryptocurrency news.
The crypto asset manager Grayscale rebalanced the DeFi fund and adjusted the weightings of the digital large-cap fund. The announcement detailed the changes that the company made to its two funds as it added the native collateral token of the Flexa payment network while Bancor’s and Universal Market Access have been removed. Flex uses the AMP token to collateralize crypto payments and settles them in fiat to recipients enabling the merchants to accept crypto much more easily.

The DPI has a higher trading volume and has dropped by 2% over the same period. Grayscale had the highest increase in BTC holdings among the spot BTC ETFs and the corporations in 2021 that accrued 645,199 BTC by the end of the year which account for 71% of the spot ETF and corporate markets BTC holdings.
As recently reported, The Grayscale Bitcoin trust reached the biggest discount ever and closed the previous week with a record discount of 21.36% according to the data from Glassnode.

According to the company, the GBTC shares price dropped by 3.46% and recorded a $43.77 price tag per share.
