Grayscale Investment moves to sell all ETHPOW tokens


Grayscale investment has announcement plans to sell the ETHPoW tokens it received from the PoW hard-fork after Ethereum transitioned to proof-of-stake (PoS).

Shortly after the September 15th merger, miners forged Ethereum to launch the Ethereum PoW network. As offers, ETHPoW tokens have been distributed to eligible ETH holders.

Two funds held by Grayscale Investment received a cumulative sum of 3,100,629 ETHPoW tokens. Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) received approximately 3,059,976 ETHPoW tokens, while Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (GDLC) received 40,653 ETHPoW tokens.

ETHE funds and GDLC will transfer ownership of their ETHPoW tokens to Grayscale Investment by close of business on September 26. Grayscale Investment is expected to retain custody of the tokens until it is able to sell them.

If public listing and significant liquidity are developed for ETHPoW tokens, Grayscale will proceed with the sale of its holdings and redistribute the proceeds to shareholders.

Grayscale added that it is unable to determine the value of ETHPoW tokens as little liquidity has been created for trading on crypto exchanges.
