It is worth noting that even with the sales, GBTC is still the largest holding of ARK Invest’s Next Generation Internet ETF, with a weighting of 9.97% valued at $132 million. Aside from GBTC, ARK Invest has stakes in Coinbase (COIN) shares, although it has dumped a reasonable amount of the asset since the beginning of this year.

ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood also spoke in favor of GBTC at the Sohn Australia conference held at the Sydney Opera House. On Friday, she declared her long-term confidence in the Trust, adding that it is her top pick.

The GBTC asset has seen a significant price surge in this year, rallying as high as 250%. Only last week, the shares gained 10% and went from $27.35 to just under $30. Plus, a lot of positive developments have been happening in the Grayscale ecosystem since it bagged a legal victory against the U.S. SEC.

Legal Debacle Overwhelms Binance

Bitcoin has been performing surprisingly well amidst the happenings in the industry. Binance CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao was hit with an enforcement action by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) a few days ago. The watchdog previously charged the leading digital asset service provider Binance with money laundering and bank fraud.

Also, there were charges for flouting Know-Your-Customers (KYC) rules and sanctions violations. Therefore, the DOJ requested over $4 billion as a settlement to resolve its case with Binance. In less than 24 hours, Zhao announced his decision to step down as CEO of the crypto exchange.
