The digital asset manager Grayscale just bought $38 million worth of Ethereum (ETH) on behalf of its investors.
The firm temporarily closed the Grayscale Ethereum Trust in late December.
Now that it’s back online, data from the analytics company Skew shows the investment product is up and running.
With the additional 24,796 ETH, Grayscale now manages more than $4 billion worth of the second-largest cryptocurrency.
Grayscale’s recent ETH purchase comes as the crypto asset breaks all-time highs ahead of the launch of the Ethereum futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) on February 8th.
Using data from Ethereum options trading, Skew says about 25% of traders expect ETH to breach the $2,000 mark in the next 90 days.
Ether probability distribution widens as implied vol picks up ahead of the CME listing.
