Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) follows GBTC, having a total AUM of approximately $1.2 billion. Grayscale's other crypto funds have a smaller AUM, in the range of $1.5 million to $145 million.

Grayscale was founded in 2013 and has grown in popularity, especially in recent months. Less than a year ago, in December 2019, the firm's total AUM was just around $1 billion.

Grayscale's funds allow investors to take indirect exposure to crypto assets, in the form of security, while avoiding the challenges of buying and storing them directly.
