Crypto Industry News:
Crypto fund manager Grayscale Investments managed to increase its assets by another $ 1 billion in less than two weeks.
According to Grayscale on Twitter, the investment firm currently has assets in AUM worth $ 5.1 billion. These funds are mainly held in Grayscale funds for Bitcoin and Ethereum, along with the company’s large-cap digital fund. There are also smaller allocations in Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Horizen, Litecoin, Stellar Lumens, XRP, and Zcash.
This represents an AUM increase of almost $ 1 billion in just 11 days, according to the July 17 update. The company more than doubled the AUM value of its BCH, from $ 6 million to $ 12.8 million over the period. Grayscale added $ 782 million to his BTC trust, $ 174 million to his ETH trust, $ 12.7 million to his ETC trust, and $ 6.7 million to his LTC trust.
Although the investment firm currently has $ 4.3bn of AUM for Bitcoin, documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission show Grayscale has not bought any cryptocurrency since June 19. Grayscale bought 19,879 BTC that day, which at the time seemed to indicate that the company was buying Bitcoin faster than miners could produce blocks.
However, according to a Grayscale report from Q3 2019, 80% of the proceeds in this quarter came from Bitcoin already in circulation, not from recently mined tokens.

The volatility on Bitcoin has significantly increased, but still the larger time frame trend remains down and as long as the level of $10,791 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves.
