While Bitcoin and Ethereum make up the bulk of the digital asset manager’s portfolio, they also offer products that allow exposure to Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Zcash (ZEC), Horizen (ZEN), and Stellar (XLM).

Additionally, Grayscale turned heads in January when they registered a sizeable list of new altcoin trusts. These trusts include Aave (AAVE), Cardano (ADA), Cosmos, (ATOM), EOS (EOS), Monero (XMR), Uniswap (UNI), and Polkadot (DOT).
