Asset manager Grayscale, which has been particularly hungry for cryptocurrency lately, is reportedly expanding its offering to Chainlink (LINK), Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Tezos (XTZ).
Grayscale would turn to LINK, BAT and XTZ
Would the cryptocurrency giant want to diversify its offer , while the altcoins bull run has helped propel certain assets to new heights? This is what seems to suggest a document from the State of Delaware , which was unearthed by the crypto community. Grayscale seems to want to establish a trust based on the LINK and others based on BAT’s Brave, the XTZ of Tezos the MANA of e Decentraland and the LPT Livepeer .
The document was registered under the name „Delaware Trust Company“ at the end of December. This is one of Grayscale’s service providers, and it is already this name that was used to set up the asset manager’s Bitcoin trust. However, we will have to wait for Grayscale’s confirmation before getting excited about this addition – the giant had registered a similar document concerning Filecoin (FIL) last October, but no trust was proposed following this.
The Happy New Year of Chainlink (LINK)
Grayscale’s possible interest in the LINK is not entirely a surprise. Altcoin had a particularly prosperous start to the year. After entering the top 10 cryptocurrencies by capitalization , it stole its place from a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in smaller form. In addition, the LINK exceeded several times its all-time high, crossing the symbolic threshold of 20 dollars in mid-January. Its capitalization is now approaching that of Litecoin (LTC).
It should also be noted that Grayscale seems to want to choose altcoins with a solid project that goes beyond a simple payment network . Filecoin is indeed a decentralized file storage network, Decentraland is a digital real estate based game, and the BAT is used by the Brave crypto browser. The arrival of institutional investors could thus give new legitimacy to these projects.
