Grayscale Launches New Solana Trust
Digital asset manager Grayscale Investments has announced its Grayscale Solana Trust on Tuesday. The firm’s sixteenth investment vehicle will be passively invested in Solana and is available to eligible individual and accredited institutional investors.
Solana has had a massive year to date. From around $1.50 in January its price has exploded to over $215 at time of writing. Popularity of rival network Ethereum caused traffic and transaction costs (gas-fees) on there to skyrocket. As a result, Solana has emerged as a reliable and convenient alternative with much lower fees and traffic as of yet.

On October 2 of this year, Solana was already included in Grayscales Digital Large Cap fund.
$SOL is the native token of the @Solana network, a smart contract platform first conceived by Anatoly Yakovenko in 2017. Like the Ethereum network, the Solana network is one of a number of projects intended to expand blockchain use beyond just a peer-to-peer money system. (3/5)
