Grayscale crypto adoption rate grows
Grayscale earlier this month announced that it was going to be selling all the XRPs in its Digital Large Cap Fund.
The crypto investment company had recently bought a huge amount of the XRP tokens but it now appears that firm has decided to liquidate all of the Ripple native tokens in the fund.
Genesis Global Trading, the sole authorized participant of the fund, had informed the public that they would be suspending all XRP transactions on its platform. According to the firm, this decision was borne out of the impending lawsuit between Ripple and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The SEC alleges that the crypto firm offered unregistered securities to the public.
Grayscale also made it known that the proceeds from the liquidation have been used to purchase other crypto assets like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.
