As per the reports, Millennium Management was among the investors exposed to free fall of net asset value of GBTC. As of now, the hedge fund has $48.3 Billion asset under management and is by far the largest to be exposed to Bitcoin. This is interesting because it indicates the large scale of institutional interest GBTC is attracting and why they are leading in race of Bitcoin ETF.
