Grayscale Now Eyeing SushiSwap (SUSHI) & Synthetix (SNX) for its Institutional Clients

Grayscale’s interest in DeFi continues to broaden with the filing of yet two more DeFi blue chips amidst the ongoing bull market.


Grayscale Investment, the world’s largest digital asset manager with $36.65 billion in assets under management (AUM), is getting increasingly interested in decentralized finance (DeFi) projects.

The firm is now looking to provide its institutional clients’ exposure to more DeFi blue chips, including SushiSwap (SUSHI) and Synthetix (SNX).

Grayscale’s “statutory trustee” for the US states Delaware Trust Company has now filed for launching the trusts for the hot DeFi projects.

SushiSwap is a popular DEX that does more than half a billion dollars worth of volume daily to capture over 23% of the DEX volume market share. The project sees a whole host of positive developments, with Coinbase Custody also announcing that it will support deposits and withdrawals for SushiSwap.

Recently, xSushi was allowed to be borrowed and lent on AAVE v2 that will allow xSushi holders to access the liquidity of their platform. Moreover, the BentoBox contract, the token vault with flash loans, and strategies went live on Ethereum, Ropsten, Kovan, Rinkeby, Goerli, Moonbeam testnet (Polkadot sidechain), and Arbitrum testnet (L2).

Synthetix, the decentralized synthetic asset platform records under $50 million in daily volume with a 1.27% market share.
