Following the announcement by Grayscale Investments that it will be offering a trust that invests in Livepeer’s LPT, the token surged from just over $6 on March 17, 2021, to an all-time high (ATH) of $32.35 on March 21.
LPT’s Four Day Surge
The token’s four-day rally briefly saw its market capitalization rising to over $630 million up from just under $120 million. However, at the time of writing, LPT had retreated to $21 and the token’s market capitalization had similarly dropped to approximately $400 million.
In addition to the LPT trust, Grayscale Investments had revealed the creation of Basic Attention (BAT), Decentraland (MANA), Chainlink, and Filecoin trusts. Yet only LPT appears to have responded more favorably to the announcement than the rest. To illustrate, MANA, which traded at $0.79 on the day of the announcement, briefly rose to just over $1. However, at the time of writing, MANA had retreated to $0.93.
