Grayscale Investments said Thursday that it added $300 million in net assets under management (AUM) in just the last 24 hours.

    • The firm now has a record $7.3 billion in total AUM, according to a tweet by Barry Silbert, chief executive officer of the Digital Currency Group, Grayscale‚Äôs parent company.
    • The biggest daily increases were reported in the litecoin trust, whose value rose 8% to $34.3 million.
    • The bitcoin trust remains Grayscale‚Äôs biggest portfolio, inching 4% to $6 billion. The ETH and BCH trusts rose 4.9% and 4.6% respectively. Others gained between 2% and 6%.
    • Grayscale profited from surging institutional interest in bitcoin. Paypal‚Äôs unexpected dive into crypto this week appears to have lit the markets up.
    • The announcement pushed the price of bitcoin above $13,000 on Wednesday, a 2020 high ‚Äď and so with it Grayscale‚Äôs trusts‚Äô valuations.
    • The $300 million Grayscale added represents a significant increase over the $1.05 billion in investments that it amassed over a whole 90-day period during the third quarter of 2020.

As corporate interest in bitcoin continues to increase, institutional-investor focused entities like Grayscale are also expected to continue to experience immense growth.
