Grayscale Completes Quarterly Rebalancing, Adds Flexa’s AMP to DeFi Fund, Removes BNT, UMA
Grayscale Investments, which manages the Grayscale DeFi Fund and the Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund, revealed the amended Fund Component weightings for each fund in conjunction with their corresponding quarterly assessments on Monday.
Grayscale, situated in New York, is controlled by Digital Currency Group, the holding firm of CoinDesk. Grayscale changed the DeFi Fund’s holdings in line with the CoinDesk DeFi Index strategy by selling specified quantities of the current Fund Components in accordance with individual weightings and utilizing the proceeds from the sale to buy Amp (AMP).
Bancor (BNT) and Universal Market Access (UMA) have now been eliminated from the CoinDesk DeFi Index and the DeFi Fund as a consequence of the rebalancing process. AMP is the indigenous currency of the Flexa platform, a payment network that allows crypto-collateralized transactions in physical and online establishments.
Flexa collateralize crypto currency payments with the AMP token while being validated on their separate blockchains and makes payouts in fiat to the receiver. Participating retailers may take payments in BTC, ETH, as well as other digital currencies more quickly and securely by allowing payments over the Flexa network. As per Grayscale, the Flexa network is just one of a plethora of initiatives aimed at accelerating the advancement of the blockchain into a sophisticated peer-to-peer financial system.
