Greyscale currently holds investment funds for 7 currencies, namely, Bitcoin [BTC], Bitcoin Cash [BCH], Ethereum [ETH], Ethereum Classic [ETC], Litecoin [LTC], Ripple [XRP], and Zcash [ZEC].

Michael Sonnenshein, the Managing Director of Grayscale explains:

“These new products form part of a suite that they intend to expand in the future with both diversified and single currency opportunities.”

The new trusts will be offered in a private placement to accredited investors whose minimum purchase value sums up to $10,000 worth shares, submitted to a one-year vesting period.

While some speculators are still not sure about this whole idea, Genter, an investor asks:

“Hello! What is the benefit of investing in grayscale fund instead of holding bitcoin directly?”

Tron, the eleventh largest cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap, recently collaborated with Bitpie, a partnership that would help startups to bridge the gap in vulnerable financial systems. Tron’s token might be lagging in terms of performance in the market but, Tron DApps continued to surge.

The DApp weekly report released by the Tron Foundation reported an increase of 22 DApps in the Tron ecosystem, taking the total to 392. It noted that gambling DApps mainly contributed to this growth as 17 DApps were gambling-based. Decentralized exchanges followed suit, as 3 new DApps made their way into the Tron DApp ecosystem. The main highlight for the entire Tron community was the partnership with Opera, a mainstream browser.

Tron introduced a DApp ‘Lucky Moon,’ an entertainment-based DApp that pushes users to estimate the current time to run away from the imploding rocket with a specific reward rate. As the rocket takes-off, the reward rate keeps increasing and the player will have to escape at the right time. An extension of this game is ‘Tyrant Annihilation,’ where users need to collect seven types of equipment to kill a tyrant. The DApp might have taken inspiration from The Avengers.

The report made note of the fact that the Tron public chain received support from Aocoin wallet, a decentralized secure digital currency wallet. My Token, a software company that specializes in market information has been integrated into Tronscan and TRX market, leading the way to user traffic in DApps ecosystem.

At press time, Tron was valued at $0.0283 with a market cap of $1.89 billion. The 24-hour trading volume of the coin was noted to be $690.34 as it reported 6.36% growth over the past day. The coin grew by 8.80% over the past seven days, but fell by 0.44% in an hour.
