Shares of Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) have never been cheaper relative to the value of the company’s underlying Bitcoin holdings.
The GBTC discount has dipped below 35% again for the first time since June. Although the company is worth $17.27 per share, the market value of each share is only $11.18.
- The figures for calculating the discount are publicly available on Grayscale’s website. As is is displayedShares of GBTC fell 4.77% on Monday, while the value of its holdings per share fell just 2.54% on a daily basis.
- More specifically, the Trust has a net worth of $11.9 billion – about 635,000 Bitcoins. At the same time, its total stock value is only $7.74 billion.
- GBTC is a Bitcoin Trust designed to give investors exposure to the price of Bitcoin. However, unlike an exchange-traded fund (ETF), GBTC shares are not easily created or destroyed. This makes it difficult for its price movements to match the prices of the underlying Bitcoin, creating divergence.
- GBTC last hit this low in June, shortly after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) abandoned Grayscale’s application to switch to Bitcoin Spot ETF. Grayscale has since sued the commission.
- One of Grayscale’s main reasons for accepting the move has been the removal of the trading discount. This would bring about a 50% increase in value to GBTC holders if ever approved.
- The SEC claims that it can only approve such a product if Grayscale enters into a “control sharing agreement with a significant size regulated market related to the underlying or reference bitcoin assets.”
- Grayscale archived last week to reward holders of their Ethereum products with ETHPoW cash.
