Cardano (ADA) price is well positioned for a surge following the recent announcement from the world’s largest digital assets manager. Cardano comprises the biggest share of the recently launched Grayscale Smart Contract Platform Ex-Ethereum Fund (GSCPxE) that tracks the current industry-leading smart contracts platforms other than Ethereum.
How Grayscale’s alternative smart contracts funds could help ADA
Specifically, ADA made up nearly 25% of each share of the fund at launch according to Grayscale’s press release Monday. This could have several positive impacts on the spot price of the asset.
For one, Grayscale’s move gives recognition to the leading role the Cardano blockchain is filling among smart contracts platforms competing with Ethereum. Cardano, while being slow to launch smart contracts capabilities due to its meticulous research approach, has been catching up to other fast movers since its Alonzo Hardfork.
Launches of decentralized applications (dApps) in the Cardano ecosystem have picked up steam, pushing Cardano’s DeFi TVL quickly above $400 million from lower than $100 million in January.
Grayscale’s new fund plays to the advantage of ADA and the other smart contract platform tokens it holds. The firm’s track record has made it highly popular with institutional investors who are known to hold the big bucks.
According to Grayscale’s CEO Michael Sonnenshein, the fund is meant to cater to their needs for diversified exposure to the crypto ecosystem.
Investor demand for diversified exposure has grown in parallel to the ongoing evolution of the crypto ecosystem, said Sonnenshein.
It follows that should the fund catch on, its success could spill over to the spot price of ADA. This has been highlighted in the performance of Grayscale’s GBTC Fund and the price of Bitcoin as recently noted by CoinMetrics.
