With $37 billion in assets, the Grayscale trust GBTC is the world’s largest Bitcoin fund. It towers over every other fund on the market. Investors have flooded into the Grayscale trust because it owns Bitcoin directly. Its largest holder is Ark Invest, the fund shop run by Cathie Wood, which has invested $375 million in the trust, including assets held in its Ark Next Generation ETF (ARKW).
