According to Grayscale, the potential assets mainly represent the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector. This includes 1inch, Bancor, Curve, Kava, Kyber Network, Loopring, Polygon, Ren, Universal Market Access, and 0x. Additionally, Solana, Near, and Dfinity have also been added to Grayscale’s list of considered cryptocurrencies.

Now, with this announcement, Grayscale has brought the total number of cryptocurrencies being explored to 31. Grayscale currently offers products that track the performance of 13 different assets.

Grayscale emphasizes that:

“As a reminder, not every asset under consideration will be turned into one of our investment products. The process of creating an investment product similar to the ones we already offer is a complex, multifaceted process. It requires significant review and consideration and is subject to substantial internal controls, sufficiently secure custody arrangements, and regulatory considerations.”

Meanwhile, Grayscale has announced that Grayscale trusts represent 75% of the $44.3 billion total assets under management in the institution’s crypto investment products. More than $2.3 billion has been invested in Grayscale trusts since the beginning of 2021.
