All Five Digital Assets Thrive in the Crypto Markets

A quick glance at Coinmarketcap reveals that all 5 digital assets of Chainlink, Basic Attention Token, Filecoin, Decentraland and Livepeer, have experienced significant gains in the last 24 hours and/or the last week.

Grayscale Will Reduce the Circulating Supply of Each

The gains exhibited by the five digital assets might be the beginning of what might become a constant climb in the crypto markets for LINK, BAT, MANA, FIL and LPT.

This is based on the simple notion that Grayscale will start accumulating each of these digital assets as they have with Bitcoin and Ethereum. As is usually the case, the accumulation by Grayscale will be constant and probably worth millions with each buy.

Therefore, their purchases henceforth will definitely reduce the supply of each of the digital assets in the crypto market thus increasing the value based on simple supply/demand dynamics.
