The latest tweet from Ethereum Classic [ETC] announced Grayscale filing to list ETC trust on Publicly-Quoted Over-the-Counter [OTC] market. As per CCN reports, this move will allow investors to buy this fund through a retail brokerage.
Ethereum Classic’s tweet earlier this morning:
This news was released during an interview conducted by CNBC with the Managing Director of Grayscale, Michael Sonnenshein who revealed that Canaccord Genuity, the trust’s broker-dealer had filed an application to have ETC Trust quoted on the OTCQX market earlier this year.
Individual trusts for Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash were also launched earlier this month by Grayscale which added to the lineup of previously included Bitcoin, Ethereum Classic, and ZCash trusts.
The announcement clarified that once the trust is publicly-quoted, shares can be purchased by retail investors through brokerage platforms. They can hold them in tax-advantaged accounts like IRAs but at present, shares are only offered through a private placement. It is limited to accredited investors who purchase a minimum of $10,000 worth shares.
Ethereum Classic [ETC] has declined by a negligible percent since yesterday. It is worth a net of $17.72 after the 3.80% downfall and has a market capital of $1.78 billion. Ranked 16th in the market, ETC is traded on OKEx, Huobi, and Bithumb among the top market volume exchange platforms. The ETC Trust will be the second product from Grayscale to be listed on an OTC market. Before this, the firm’s most popular product Bitcoin Investment Trust [OTCQX: GBTC] had been quoted publicly back in 2015.
A Twitterati comments:
“Go To the moon”
Another Twitter user commented:
“Litecoin is a very flexible currency. Seem ETC is your favorite or just pumping it!”
According to CCN reports, Grayscale has also launched a slew of new funds this year which has doubled the size of its product line, the most notable being the opening of a fund that holds the 5 largest digital currencies by capitalization, exposing investors to roughly 70% of market value aggregate.
