Grayscale is most well known for its flagship Bitcoin investment trust, while DCG provides seed funding for blockchain-related companies.
Earlier this year, Silbert stepped down from his role of CEO at Grayscale and was replaced by the firm’s Managing Director, Michael Sonnenshein.
Silbert left the position in order to concentrate on his role at DCG, which saw massive growth in 2020.
Half of the Millennial Millionaires Have 25% of Wealth in Crypto
A survey by CNBC and Spectrum Group which polled 750 investors with at least $1 million in investable assets showed that nearly half of all millennial millionaires (47%) have at least a quarter of their wealth (25%) in cryptocurrencies.
At the same time, almost 35% have more than half of their wealth invested in cryptocurrencies.
In contrast, older millionaires have only 10% of their wealth in cryptocurrencies with 83% having no investment in digital assets at all.
While 98% of baby boomer millionaires say they do not own or consider owning an NFT, nearly half of millionaire millennials have revealed owning NFTs.
A third of those polled believed that NFTs are merely a “passing fad” while the rest believe they are part of the future of digital assets with an additional 40% saying they have considered investing in them.
In addition, two-thirds of millennial millionaires think that NFTs “is the next big thing.”
