Grayscale May Return 20% Of Investor Capital If SEC Rejects Spot Bitcoin ETF: Report

If the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declines to approve its spot Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF), Grayscale Investments is considering options to return some of the capital of its flagship Grayscale Bitcoin (OTC:GBTCproduct.

According to the Wall Street Journal, citing a letter to investors, Grayscale is to offer a tender for 20% of the existing GBTC shares, which are now trading at a 49% discount to its net asset value (NAV).

Earlier this month, the SEC blamed a lack of regulatory monitoring as the reason Grayscale's attempt to convert its Bitcoin trust into an ETF was unsuccessful many times.

According to Grayscale managing director Michael Sonnenshein, the firm currently intends to continue operating GBTC without an ongoing redemption campaign until it is successful in turning it into a spot Bitcoin ETF if it is unable to restore capital to GBTC shareholders via a tender offer or ETF.

Grayscale filed a lawsuit against the SEC in June, claiming that it "vehemently disagreed" with the agency's decision to reject the company's ETF application.

Compared to its all-time high in November 2021, the price of Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) has fallen nearly 70%, wiping out billions of dollars of investors' wealth and bankrupting several large firms.
