Digital asset manager Grayscale Investments has posted its best quarterly results to date, having brought in just over $1 billion in investment across all of its cryptocurrency products.

  • In its financial report for Q3 2020, the company – which is owned by CoinDesk’s parent firm Digital Currency Group – said it had seen inflows of $1.05 billion across all products.
  • For the year so far, the figure stands at $2.4 billion, which Grayscale said is more than twice the total amount raised for the years 2013–2019.
  • Its most popular product, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, saw inflows of $719.3 million in the third quarter, while bitcoin assets under management (AUM) have grown 147% in 2020.
  • Crypto products excluding the Bitcoin Trust made a 31% contribution to the $1 billion total in Q3.
  • Grayscale’s trusts for litecoin and bitcoin cash, and its “Large Cap Fund,” all saw inflows rise by 1,400% from quarter to quarter.
  • The company said 81% of investment in Q3 came from institutional investors, while 57% of investment came from those investing in multiple products. That reflects a broadening of interest outside bitcoin, the company said. 
  • Grayscale had around $5.9 billion in assets under management across its 10 products as of Sept. 30.
  • Edit (13:40 UTC): Corrected erroneous investment amount in first paragraph.
