The investment giant Grayscale recently added one more billion worth of Bitcoin calculating the total Asset Under Management (AUM) near the $50 billion mark. The investment was made in barely 24 hours.

As per recent reports, the total AUM of Grayscale has expanded to more than $3 billion. Shortly after the addition, the crypto-trust added five new tokens for their eligible accredited investors. 

The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) now accounts for $38.1 billion (82.64%) of Grayscale’s total AUM, while the Ethereum Trust (ETHE) accounts for $6.6 billion (14.26%). The remaining trusts, including Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin, account for the rest of 3.10%.
