Grayscale Ethereum Trust Eyeing Next Level
The recent filing initiated by the Grayscale investments with the US Securities and Exchange Commission looks forward to making its Ethereum Trust an SEC reporting firm.
The approval of the filing by SEC will subject Ethereum Trust to the requirements of Regulation 13 A under the Exchange Act. According to the crypto asset fund manager, SEC is already reviewing its application.
“The filing is subject to SEC review; if the Registration Statement becomes effective, it would designate Grayscale Ethereum Trust as the second digital currency investment vehicle to attain the status of a reporting company by the SEC, following Grayscale® Bitcoin Trust as the first.”
Making Grayscale Ethereum Trust an SEC reporting company would boost Grayscale’s reputation in the eyes of institutional investors that are still not fully convinced with investing in digital assets.
