Despite Grayscale’s dominant share of trade volume, its products were found to have underperformed the spot markets as the historic premium on Grayscale’s shares fell by 8% during January.
The AUM of Grayscale’s Litecoin Trust grew 111% to tag $3.84 billion last month, sitting roughly 10% greater than the $3.47B managed by its Ethereum Trust.
Less well known funds also saw significant growth, including 3iQ’s Bitcoin Fund which saw a 43% jump in AUM to $3.47B.
Trade volume for crypto Exchange-traded notes, or ETNs, nearly tripled over the month. ETC Group’s BTCE product dominated ETN volumes with nearly $50 million in daily trade — representing more than two-thirds of total ETN volume.
WisdomTree’s BTCW/USD was the second-most traded ETN with $7 million in daily volume after its trade activity increased more than 210%, followed by VanEck’s Bitcoin Vectors with $5 million — owing to a nearly 500% jump in volume .
Trading in exchange-traded certificates, or ETCs, more than doubled, with XBT Provider’s Bitcoin Tracker Euro and Bitcoin Tracker One products representing more than half of combined ETC volume — driving $45.6 million and $34.9 million in respective daily trade.
XBT provider’s Ether-derived products are the next-most popular ETCs, with Ether Tracker One and Ether Tracker Euro pushing $18.2 million and $17.8 million respectively.
