Grayscale disposes of its AVAX holdings

On 6 January, Grayscale filed a report with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) detailing the portfolio rebalancing. The company reported changing the fund’s portfolio by selling Avalanche and investing the proceeds across the remaining fund components following their prior weightings.

AVAX was not the only asset disclosed in the announcement. To make room for Synthetix [SNX] in its DeFi Fund, Algorand [ALGO] was unloaded as well.

Recent information on Grayscale’s website showed that the company now had more than $164 million worth of assets under management. AVAX accounted for a proportion of its interests that was less than one percent. Its AVAX holdings were contained in the company’s recent filing with the SEC submitted in 2022.

How did the news impact AVAX?

When viewed in a daily timeframe, AVAX increased by 0.31% by the close of trading on 6 January. Following the statement from Grayscale, the asset’s price rose to roughly $11.77 by the end of the trading day.

However, an examination of the chart revealed that the asset fell to $11.35 during the same trading period. The price drop may have resulted from the announcement rather than an intentional Grayscale dump.

Holders should not anticipate any significant price movement soon, even though the news had little to no negative impact on the asset’s price.
