In the last month of 2020, Grayscale has suspended the recruitment of new customers for six investment trust products like Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) and Ethereum Investment Trust.

The investment trust is stored for 6 months and then sold to the secondary market to the general investors. Hence, the investment trust product GTBC were released to the secondary market on 21st December. They were locked up till June. 

Grayscale follows the system for suspension and sell of the product. Before December 2020, the new shares were launched in June 2020. They were issued after the account opening had been suspended. After six months, new shares were suspended on 21st December. 

If compared to the spot price of Bitcoin, GTBC’s premium is quite attractive and gives 30% compared to bitcoin. However, an investor has to sell and buy them like general stocks. The investment is like an old age for eg: IRA accounts (individual retirement account). They are very attractive accounts and can be used as a vehicle. 

It is to be noted that Grayscale did not include XRP in its list of investment trust products. There are virtual currency stocks which have the highest market capitalization on the 5th of last month. They are popularly known as Digital Large Cap Fund. As for the 4th of this month, the position was liquidated. The amount that comes from the sales was given to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.

Grayscale had informed that the reason for including XRP in the investment trust fund is due to its suspension that was announced on December 30. The reason for suspending it was the lawsuit filed against Ripple by the SEC.
