Solana and Uniswap Added to Grayscale Fund

Grayscale Investments, the world’s largest digital currency asset manager, announced Friday the quarterly rebalancing of its two diversified portfolios: the large-cap fund and the defi (decentralized finance) fund.

For the Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (OTCQX: GDLC), the company sold some of the existing components and used the cash proceeds to purchase solana (SOL) and uniswap (UNI). Grayscale said:

[This is] the first time solana (SOL) will be included in a Grayscale investment vehicle.

This was also the first time uniswap was added to the large-cap fund. However, the token has been in the Grayscale Defi Fund since the portfolio launched in July.

At the end of the day on Oct. 1, the large-cap fund’s components were bitcoin (BTC), 62.19%; ethereum (ETH), 26.08%; cardano (ADA), 5.11%; solana (SOL), 3.24%; uniswap (UNI), 1.06%; chainlink (LINK), 0.82%; litecoin (LTC), 0.77%; and
bitcoin cash (BCH), 0.73%.
