Better Data Delivers Better Performance

Much of the data that exists in digital asset markets is “noise” and has limited impact on trading performance. By leveraging our proprietary deep learning tools, we are able to synthesize uncorrelated data points to develop accurate and timely trading overlays through our constant research and development of quantitative trading models.


Given the poor quality of data available in digital asset markets, our proprietary data analytics tools further provide us with an unparalleled advantage in sifting out outcome-oriented data and our deep learning tools ensure this data can then be transposed into trading ideas.



Research Methodology

Researchers and automated algorithms are responsible for identifying market inefficiencies and trading opportunities and to assess trading strategies for efficacy and consistency.

We take an inductive approach towards our trading research and delve deep into the underlying blockchain technology of the digital assets we actively trade.



Computerized Modelling

All trading ideas must be capable of computerized modeling to ensure that they can be deployed as automated trades.

Formal computerized models control all aspects of trading, including directional positioning in the markets, risk exposure for every individual trade position and risk allocation within the overall trading portfolio.



Quantitative Expression

Trading strategies must be capable of being quantitatively expressed, forcing careful thought about the precise nature and characteristics the strategy is designed to capture.

No trading strategy is dependent on any single “key” person but represents the synthesis of several trading strategies, with vital inputs from stakeholders and stress-tested as well as backtested to ensure resilience in operation.

Disciplined adherence to well-researched strategies and using superior data collection and interpretation is inherent in the research and development process, ensuring objectivity and a commitment to delivering optimal performance.

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.
