Grayscale Investments has increased its assets under management (AUM) in its Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) by more than $180 million.
The institutional fund management firm added 17,100 Bitcoin (BTC) to the Bitcoin Trust in the last week.
Added to the Trust’s AUM, Grayscale now has a total of 449,900 Bitcoins at an aggregate price of $4.9 billion parked in its fund.
Grayscale’s Bitcoin allocation means it hodls about 2.4% of the total Bitcoin supply, which is currently at 18,502,725, making it the biggest active Bitcoin whale.
The Bitcoin Trust, which has grown almost 40% from $3.55 billion on 1 July, shows no sign of slowing down either.
