According to reports, Grayscale added 174,000 tokens to its litecoin holdings in the past month. This haul pushed its total holdings of the altcoin to 1.44 million. Following this acquisition, which represents 80% of all litecoin that were mined in the past month, the total value of Grayscale’s holdings of the altcoin is now just over $248 million.

However, following the large acquisition by Grayscale Investments, LTC’s price movement appears to be unrelated to changing supply dynamics. For instance, Messari data shows that the altcoin only went above the $200 mark between February 12 and 22. However, since then the price has returned to levels below $200 with February 25 being the only exception. At the time of writing, the token was trading at just above $190.

In the meantime, on Twitter, some users are questioning the altcoin’s failure to pump following Grayscale’s massive buying. For instance, one Twitter user, Carolyn Bamberger asks why the price has not pumped. In response, the Litecoin team said:

Still, other users remain unconvinced with this explanation, while a few supporters believe that a price spike will happen soon.

In the meantime, according to data shared by the Litecoin team, in the same period, Grayscale added over 243,000 ETH. This addition meant that as of March 1, 2020, Grayscale held a total of 3.17 million ETH tokens that are valued at around $4.86 billion.

In contrast, only 7,169 BTC were added to Grayscale’s biggest holdings thus bringing the investment company’s total holdings of the crypto asset to over 655,640 bitcoins.
