Thanks for quoting me on the article “Bitcoin miners cannot meet Grayscale Investments customer demand”/ “Майнеры Bitcoin не могут удовлетворить спрос клиентов Grayscale Investments”.
Adding on to what I have commented and quoted in this article.
“Greyscale Investments has doubled up their investment in Bitcoin. The company has bought 18.910 BTCs since 11 May 2020.
It is normal for an investment company to see the potential of Bitcoin, in fact, if they realised this earlier, the whole situation will be different.
I believe their daily investment from 607.62 BTCs to 1,112.35 Bitcoin is just the beginning. As the market builds more confidence for Bitcoin, their average daily will increase too.
Do bear in mind BTC’s supply is fixed and the demand is very strong. There may be an overflow of interest in other potential tokens too.”

Bitcoin miners cannot meet Grayscale Investments customer demand
Grayscale Investments, which is part of the holding of millionaire Barry Silbert , after the May halving bought more than 18 thousand Bitcoin. Analyst Kevin Rook noted that the volume of investments of the asset management company is one and a half times the number of tokens mined by miners over the specified period of time.
According to Ruka, miners have mined about 12,337 BTC since the third halving. During the same time, Grayscale-owned regulated cryptocurrency trust – Bitcoin Trust – acquired 18,910 BTC. It turns out that the trust buys 150% of all issued tokens. Rook also noted that after the halving, the company significantly increased the volume of average daily investments – from 607.62 BTC to 1112.35 BTC.
Changpeng Zhao , head of the Binance cryptocurrency exchange , has already noticed a Tweak tweet and noted that the demand for cryptocurrency exceeds supply. However, some community members feel that this is not good. For example, investor Andy Lian noted that the actions of Grayscale will lead to the appearance of another whale on the market, which will adversely affect the entire industry.
However, the increased activity on the part of the Bitcoin Trust is another indication that institutional investors do not share the position of the financial conglomerate Goldman Sachs, which opposed investments in cryptocurrency. Note that the crypto community has reacted quite rapidly to criticism of the investment bank. Users believe that his analysts were not able to appreciate the capabilities of this class of assets.
Grayscale Investments reports that as of May 27, 2020, the company managed assets with a total value of $ 3.6 billion. Moreover, most of these assets are accounted for precisely by Bitcoin Trust. He manages assets worth $ 3.2 billion – this is approximately 345,000 BTC at the current exchange rate, or almost 2% of all Bitcoin circulating in the network.
Recall that in the first quarter of 2020, Grayscale Investments attracted more than $ 500 million under its wing – this is almost as much as the company managed to attract for the entire 2019. Most of this money was invested in her bitcoin trust.
