Robinhood adding GBTC and ETHE investment items follows the firm rolling out its crypto wallet throughout the very first week of April. On April 12, 2022, Robinhood noted shiba inu (SHIB), substance (COMPENSATION), polygon (MATIC), and solana (SOL).
The founder and CEO of Digital Currency Group (DCG), the parent company of Grayscale Investments, Barry Silbert, was enjoyed see Robinhood list GBTC and ETHE. “Lastly,” Silbert tweeted. “You can now trade Grayscale Bitcoin Trust and Grayscale Ethereum Trust on Robinhood.”
Year-to-date data show GBTC is down 46.63% and ETHE is down 44.08%. Grayscale recently submitted a Form 10 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a Zcash Trust, Stellar Lumens Trust, and Horizen Trust.
Grayscale is likewise in the middle of trying to get its trust transformed into an exchange-traded fund (ETF). However, the SEC has actually been a challenge for bitcoin spot ETFs to emerge and the U.S. regulator has yet to authorize a bitcoin area ETF.
Grayscale Investments’ CEO Michael Sonnenshein recently explained in an interview that the SEC could potentially violate the Administrative Procedure Act if a bitcoin spot ETF is entirely rejected.
The firm’s chief legal officer, Craig Salm, explained what the conversion process would look like if the trust became an ETF. “GBTC share prices will likely move to trade in line with NAV,” Salm detailed. “Then, the shares would be uplisted from OTCQX to NYSE Arca,” the primary legal officer added.
Grayscale Investments is also asking people to get included with the effort to get the U.S. regulator to authorize the conversion of GBTC to an ETF.
Prior to including Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust and Ethereum Trust, Robinhood began its European growth and just recently got the UK crypto business Ziglu. In addition, last month the co-founder and CEO of Robinhood, Vladimir Tenev, went over how DOGE could scale with Tesla’s Elon Musk.
