Cryptocurrency investors now have two more options from Grayscale Investments’ products lineup. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC) fans as well as institutional investors can now get exposure to the price movements of the two crypto assets via the investment firm’s Litecoin Trust (LTCN) and Bitcoin Cash Trust (BCHG).

On Monday, August 17, Grayscale announced that both its LTCN and BCHG have received DTC eligibility. “Grayscale Investments®, the world’s largest digital currency asset manager, today announced that Grayscale® Bitcoin Cash Trust and Grayscale® Litecoin Trust have received DTC-eligibility,” the company wrote on a press release published on GlobeNewswire.com.

What this means is that investors now have access to the two trusts and invest in them, according to Bitcoin.com. “Essentially, DTC eligibility means that the securities, in this case, LTCN and BCHG are able to be pledged through the DTC,” the publication noted.

DTC stands for Depository Trust Company, one of the largest securities in the world and is based in New York City. It was founded in 1973 and manages a staggering $35 trillion worth of securities.

With the DTC eligibility, investors can now trade in the trusts as they are available on over-the-counter (OTC) markets. The Bitcoin Cash Trust was assigned the ticker symbol BCHG while the Litecoin Trust is tradable under the LTCN symbol.

“Eligible Shares of Grayscale Bitcoin Cash Trust will be available to trade on OTC Markets under the symbol: BCHG and eligible Shares of Grayscale Litecoin Trust will be available to trade on OTC Markets under the symbol: LTCN,” Grayscale wrote. “This announcement follows FINRA’s verification that the required diligence to begin quoting BCHG and LTCN pursuant to Rule 15c2-11 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, has been completed.”

One of the advantages of trading BCHG and LTCN is that investors will be able to gain exposure to their underlying crypto assets without worrying about their storage and safekeeping. “The Trusts are open-ended trusts sponsored by Grayscale and are intended to enable exposure to the price movement of each Trust’s underlying assets through an investment vehicle, avoiding the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping digital Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin directly,” Grayscale noted.

I know about stolen Bitcoins a little too much and this is because I have been tricked into investing in a Bitcoin company that turned out to be a scam, so I had my bitcoins stolen.

The digital and virtual nature of the cryptocurrency makes it hard to trace hence it is a nightmare when you get swindled of your coins. Losing my 9 BTC to fraudsters last year was agonizing and tortuous as I did not know where to turn. I gave up hope, beat myself up for being dumb but about the evil nature of the criminal fraudsters. I was licking my figurative wounds with a lot of “what ifs”, wishing to turn back the hands of time when I stumbled upon ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM

To be fair, I did not take them seriously at first but I decided to give it a shot as I literally had nothing to lose at the point. Recovering lost cryptocurrency is near impossible but by reporting the situation to ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM , you give yourself a fighting chance at recovering what was lost. They have the technology to do the near impossible. You can simply send an email or WhatsApp on +1 206 745-0108
