These products trade on over-the-counter markets rather than on an exchange. A difference in premium creates an opportunity for players to capture the spread between the premium and the net asset value (NAV), hedge funders told The Block earlier this year.

Weekly premiums of Grayscale's Bitcoin (GBTC) and Ethereum (ETHE) offerings are sitting at 22.78% and 59.93%, respectively.

The ETHE premium has seen a steep drop off from its bull run earlier this year when it traded as high as 830% in June.
