LONG Grayscale Bitcoin Trust & SHORT Micro Strategy
The Fund has initiated a pair-trade that involves a long position in a closed-end Fund named Grayscale Bitcoin Trust and a short position in MicroStrategy, which is a software company with a large Bitcoin holding.
To be very clear, our long position in Grayscale is not a reflection of a positive view for the cryptocurrency, to the contrary. In addition to this investment case, we have written a discussion paper with our differing views on the numerous ‘bull’ arguments proposed by Bitcoin proponents such as Michael Saylor, the CEO of MicroStrategy.
