Gold ETF Exec Switches Allegiance to Bitcoin ETF

According to Grayscale CEO Barry Silbert, the addition of McDonald to the team could help the firm to expand its reach as digital asset ETFs continue to become increasingly common and popular. Silbert explained that McDonald brings “a wealth of knowledge and experience managing ETFs and other complex financial instruments” to her new role, adding that “she will play a critical role for Grayscale as digital currencies continue to grow as an asset class for institutional and individual investors,” according to a report by PRNewsWire.com.

Grayscale is perhaps best known as the provider of single-asset and diversified investment products, most notably Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC), the first publicly-quoted instrument which was solely invested in bitcoin.


Bitcoin Is Melting, Again – Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF (Pending:COIN)

Bitcoin (COIN), (OTCQX:GBTC) is not having a great week, and it looks like this sell-off may get even worse.
