    Asset manager Grayscale has rebalanced weights for three of its crypto funds, removing tokens such as Polygon (MATIC) while adding Avalanche (AVAX) and XRP (XRP), according to an announcement on Jan. 5. 

    The new allocations are part of Grayscale quarterly review and impact its Digital Large Cap Fund (GDLC), DeFi Fund (DEFG), and Smart Contract Platform Ex-Ethereum Fund (GSCPxE Fund).

As a result of the rebalancing, MATIC was removed from GDLC.

    As for Grayscale’s DeFi Fund, among the changes is the removal of the Curve DAO (CRV) token from the portfolio. The new basket is formed by Uniswap (UNI) with 41.11% allocation, Lido (LDO) holding 23.90%, MakerDAO (MKR) with 13.39%, Aave (AAVE) at 12.63%, and Synthetix (SNX) at 8.97%.

    Though dropped from one of the portfolios, MATIC is still included in the GSCPxE Fund, in which no tokens have been added or removed. The fund updated composition consists of SOL at 44.54%, ADA at 19.77%, AVAX holding 13.89%, Polkadot (DOT) at 9.75%, MATIC at 8.25%, and Cosmos (ATOM) with 3.80%

    Fund managers periodically review and adjust the weightings to optimize the fund’s performance according to the prevailing market conditions, risk assessments, and investment objectives. This process is often done quarterly.
