We are excited to announce that Grayscale – the world’s largest digital currency asset manager, has begun trading Grayscale® Horizen Trust on the OTCQX® Best Market, under the symbol HZEN. This signifies an exciting new milestone in our project’s history. An OTCQX listing expands the community of Horizen(ZEN) network users to those who participate in the US OTC Markets
“This is an important milestone for digital currencies, and demonstrates Grayscale’s continued commitment to moving each of our products from a private placement to the public markets.
For the past six years, investors have leveraged Grayscale products and the OTCQX Market to gain diversified exposure to the digital currency ecosystem, and we are pleased that they will now – for the first time – be able to access Horizen (HZEN) as publicly-quoted securities.” – Craig Salm, Grayscale’s Head of Legal.
“There are very few products like this on the marketplace. This is a signal to the world and marketplace in general, that we are one of the few projects that have been through rigorous legal scrutiny like this. It highlights our project’s and team’s dedication to being a transparent leading project in this industry.
This means that shares of Horizen Trust are now publicly available to United States residents which opens up our ecosystem to people that are hesitant to get into cryptocurrency, but still want to participate in Horizen’s future.” – Rob Viglione, Horizen’s Co-Founder and Team Lead.
