Recently, Grayscale Investments have announced their approval from Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc (FINRA) for public quotations of the eligible shares of Grayscale Bitcoin Cash Trust and Grayscale Litecoin Trust. The approval means that the trust mentioned above will now be available in Over-the-counter markets under the symbols BCHG and LTCN, respectively.
Grayscale Investment is the daughter company of Digital Currency Group that manages investment funds of cryptocurrencies. In 2018 the company started providing investment funds for cryptocurrencies apart from Bitcoin like Ethereum, ZCash, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and so on.
The Grayscale Bitcoin Cash trust, as well as the Grayscale Litecoin Trust, enable the investors to gain widespread exposure to the movements of BTCH as well as LTC price respectively by using a conventional investment vehicle. However, back in 2018, the Grayscale Bitcoin Cash Trust, as well as the Grayscale Litecoin Trust, was not registered with the US Securities and Exchange Committee. However, this will be the first of its kind where BTCH’s and LTC’s derived value will be publicly-quoted securities in the US.
