Based on the adjustment, Solana and Uniswap make 3.24% and 1.06% of the Fund components respectively while Grayscale continues to cut down on Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) holdings.
In the previous quarterly rebalancing, Grayscale’s portfolio had included 4.26% of Cardano’s ADA, making it the third-largest asset in the Large Cap Fund. However, the latest adjustment makes ADA represent 5.11% of the fund.
Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) continue to own a lion’s share of the GDLC crypto basket, at 62.19% and 26.08% respectively. Chanlink (LINK), Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin together represent 2.32% of the GDLC basket, which is down from 2.88% in July 2021.
