Cardano Is The Third Largest Crypto In Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund
According to Grayscale, there was a little adjustment to accommodate Cardano into the portfolio. Grayscale sold some of the components to buy ADA. Before buying Cardano, Grayscale also made the same adjustment in April to buy Chainlink (LINK).
By this recent action, the asset management firm has caused the price of Cardano (ADA) to gain by at least 1.09% following the announcement. Also, crypto now occupies the third position in the funds after Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Cardano (ADA) noticed several positive developments in recent times, and it seems that the trend is continuing. After its network upgrade, the token price rose impressively.
While the community is still awed by that, Grayscale has taken another huge step to push the token further towards the positive trend.
