Our clients’ security lies at the very heart of what we do.


By using best-in-class legal and digital security solutions for our clients, we provide a safe haven for clients participating in the growth of cryptocurrencies. Blending comprehensive legal solutions with up-to-date cybersecurity solutions, we ensure the safety of your cryptocurrency assets at every stage of the allocation process, from receiving, storing and redistributing of cryptocurrencies to the redemption and withdrawal process.


We also adjudge counterparty risk at all times and have strict internal policies and protocols on trading and the handling of client assets. Withdrawal addresses for cryptocurrencies are whitelisted and inaccessible to traders, while all private keys controlling cryptocurrency addresses are subject to established multi-sig best practices and 2FA protections.



Institutional-Grade Cybersecurity

Our clients’ security lies at the very heart of what we do.

All cybersecurity protocols and best-practices have been developed in conjunction with external advisers and are stress-tested periodically to protect our clients’ digital assets and interests.



Cold Wallets

Any digital assets which are not being deployed for trading are kept in cold wallets, separated by air gaps from digital interference and stored with regulated custodians, access to these cold wallets is subject to multi-sig security protocols.



2FA Tokens

Access to trading accounts is protected by 2FA Tokens (digital and physical) and digital asset deposit addresses are whitelisted so that no individual trader is able to withdraw funds directly to non-company controlled digital asset addresses.


Digital asset trading account addresses are segregated and managed by multi-sig technology, so that no one individual is able to access digital asset deposits in any particular address managed by the company.



Virtual Private Network (VPN)

We employ and require the use of VPN across all online interaction with trading programs and all communication to reduce exposure to malicious attacks.



Third Party Audits

Our cybersecurity protocols, strategies and contingency plans are subject to routine and regular audit by third party firms to ensure that clients’ digital assets and interests are protected at all times.

Important Risk Information



Carefully consider each Product’s investment objectives, risk factors, fees and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in each Product’s private placement memorandum, which may be obtained from Grayscale and, for each Product registered with the SEC and/or listed on the OTC Markets, such Product’s annual report or information statement, which may be obtained by visiting the SEC’s website for Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (Symbol: GBTC) and Grayscale Ethereum Trust (Symbol: ETHE) or the OTC Markets website for Grayscale Bitcoin Cash Trust (Symbol: BCHG), Grayscale Ethereum Classic Trust (Symbol: ETCG), Grayscale Litecoin Trust (Symbol: LTCN) and Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (Symbol: GDLC). Reports on OTC Markets are not prepared in accordance with SEC requirements and may not contain all information that is useful for an informed investment decision. Read these documents carefully before investing.


Investments in the Products are speculative investments that involve high degrees of risk, including a partial or total loss of invested funds. Grayscale Products are not suitable for any investor that cannot afford loss of the entire investment. The shares of each Product are intended to reflect the price of the digital asset(s) held by such Product (based on digital asset(s) per share), less such Product’s expenses and other liabilities. Because each Product does not currently operate a redemption program, there can be no assurance that the value of such Product’s shares will reflect the value of the assets held by such Product, less such Product’s expenses and other liabilities, and the shares of such Product, if traded on any secondary market, may trade at a substantial premium over, or a substantial discount to, the value of the assets held by such Product, less such Product’s expenses and other liabilities, and such Product may be unable to meet its investment objective.


This information should not be relied upon as research, investment advice, or a recommendation regarding any products, strategies, or any security in particular. This material is strictly for illustrative, educational, or informational purposes and is subject to change.


The shares of each Product are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (except for Grayscale Bitcoin Trust and Grayscale Ethereum Trust), the Investment Company Act of 1940, or any state securities laws. The Products are offered in private placements pursuant to the exemption from registration provided by Rule 506(c) under Regulation D of the Securities Act and are only available to accredited investors. As a result, the shares of each Product are restricted and subject to significant limitations on resales and transfers. Potential investors in any Product should carefully consider the long-term nature of an investment in that Product prior to making an investment decision. The shares of certain Products are also publicly quoted on OTC Markets and shares that have become unrestricted in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC may be bought and sold throughout the day through any brokerage account.
