The great thing about GSCPxE is that investors don’t have to pick one winner, and instead can access the development of the smart contract platform ecosystem through a single investment vehicle,” added Grayscale’s CEO.

The current AUM of the digital currency asset manager with all of its investment products is worth nearly $40 billion using current cryptocurrency exchange rates.

During the announcement of the GSCPxE fund, Jodie Gunzberg, the CFA and managing director at Coindesk Indices, further emphasized that the demand for digital currency diversification is increasing. “Many investors have been allocated ETH due to the explosive growth of the past year, so now there is demand for exposure to the rest of the Smart Contract Platform sector,” Gunzberg said.
