New York-based Grayscale Investments announced late last night that they have performed their quarterly rebalance, this time adding Solana (ticker symbol: SOL) and Uniswap (ticker symbol: UNI) to its Digital Large Cap Fund.
According to their release, “Grayscale has adjusted the Digital Large Cap Fund’s portfolio by selling certain amounts of the existing Fund Components in proportion to their respective weightings and using the cash proceeds to purchase Solana (SOL) and Uniswap (UNI).”
Recently Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenshein made the case for retail investors to learn about the tech behind crypto. “Many investors, I think, first have to understand the underlying technology, as well as the use cases around various digital currencies to decide what may make sense for them,” Sonnenshein said.
Uniswap And Solana
Adding Solana comes as no surprise. The surging Ethereum killer founds its way into the NFT market, and now features several popular projects, most notably the degenerate ape academy. And despite the September market dip, Solana is still up over 55%. Currently, SOL is trading at $167.

Uniswap, the other top 20 project Grayscale added to its fund, has struggled of late. UNI is down 14% the last month. However, it is still by far the largest DeFi project going. Its closest competitor, PancakeSwap, is currently 38th in terms of market cap.
Uniswap is currently trading in the $26 USD range.
Grayscale Fund Increases Cardano Stake
Last quarter, Grayscale’s rebalancing included Cardano. At the time Cardano was only 4.26% of its portfolio. With the latest rebelancing, the Charles Hoskinson-led project is now 5.11%, up almost 1%. This despite that its biggest price catalyst is no longer driving the price.

At the time, adding Cardano was viewed as in preparation for a big move from Cardano before the proof-of-stake project completed smart contracts. ADA sat at $1.38 USD the day of the Grayscale announcement, and rose as high $3.10.
ADA is now trading in the $2.27 range.
