At the time of writing, Grayscale DeFi Fund’s share price is $5.56, marking an 11.2 percent gain since its initial share price of $5 on July 14. The fund has $11.6 million in assets under management and owns 2.08 million shares.
Grayscale is best known for the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which currently has $30.1 billion in assets under management.
