An announcement issued by the platform on January 3 noted the changes that Grayscale would be making to the two funds.
Grayscale rebalances two funds
The announcement noted that Grayscale was rebalancing the weightings for the DeFi Fund with the AMP token. AMP is the native token for the Flexa payment network. Additionally, it has removed Bancor (BNT) and Universal Market Access (UMA).
Flexa integrates the AMP token as collateral for payments made through the network. The payments are later settled in fiat currencies allowing merchants on the network to receive crypto payments easily and securely.
The digital asset management firm reshuffled the weightings, and it did not change the token list for the Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (GDLC). The DeFi fund will now comprise nine different cryptocurrencies in the DeFi sector.
