Updated: Feb 29

ARK Invest has recently conducted its most substantial sell-off of Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) shares for the year, reducing the holdings in its ARKW ETF. This move resulted in ARKW's GBTC holdings decreasing to $112.7 million, constituting approximately 6.95% of its overall value.

The sell-off occurred amid changes in the market and a broader selling trend by ARK Invest. On Monday, Grayscale's Bitcoin Trust shares experienced an 8.6% decline, primarily influenced by a 5.8% drop in the value of Bitcoin. Notably, Grayscale is actively working towards transforming its Trust ETF into a spot Bitcoin ETF, pending approval from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In addition to shedding GBTC shares, ARK Invest also divested $1.88 million worth of Coinbase shares on Monday. This move follows a previous sale of over $100 million of Coinbase stock just last week, emphasizing ARK Invest's ongoing adjustment of its investment portfolio in response to market dynamics and strategic considerations.
