Another Giant Steps Into Solana

Grayscale Investments, the market-leading in digital asset management, has launched the ‘Grayscale Solana Trust’ on Nov. 30.

The trust is the 16th product in the asset manager’s suite of investment offerings. It already has assets under management (AUM) of $10.30 million with shares outstanding of 4,674,600. Each share represents 0.0099911 SOL tokens. The trust is solely and passively invested in SOL, allowing its investors to gain exposure to the price volatility of the token without having to interact with the asset class directly.

“For the last eight years, Grayscale has been at the forefront of offering investors efficient exposure to the ever-evolving digital currency ecosystem. We have had a front-row seat to the mainstream acceptance and adoption of crypto and increasingly find that investors are diversifying their exposure beyond digital assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our family of Grayscale products will continue to expand alongside this exciting asset class, as we remain committed to offering investors opportunities to access the digital economy,” stated Michael Sonnenshein, CEO of Grayscale Investments, in the official press release of the announcement.
