The world’s largest digital currency asset manager, Grayscale Investments, announced the launch of a new co-investment opportunity on Thursday, a financial vehicle that aims to take advantage of the crypto economy’s market cycles.

According to the Grayscale Digital Infrastructure Opportunities, (GDIO), the Four Stages of the Mining Cycle.

Foundry is the most popular bitcoin mining pool, in terms of hashrate. The firm’s mining pool captured 19.38% of the global hashrate this year, or discovered roughly 10,375 out of the 53,532 BTC blocks found during the past 12 months. Grayscale sees the crypto winter as a unique opportunity for investors, despite this year’s bear market.

Grayscale’s investment thesis states:

Due to the dramatic drop in bitcoin prices, leveraged miners have felt significant pressure on their operating margins. We expect that many miners will have to sell their equipment in the next months. We think GDIO will be able to buy mining equipment at distress levels, and profitably mine Bitcoin in the future.

For instance, the crypto miner Cleanspark explained this past summer that the crypto economy’s downturn has produced “unprecedented opportunities.” At the end of June, a report noted that $4 billion in bitcoin mining loans were in distress. Moreover, In September, Jihan Wu’s Bitdeer launched a $250 million fund to help distressed miners. Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenshein believes his company is unique and can help Grayscale find new opportunities during the crypto winter cycles.

“Grayscale’s unique position at the center of the crypto ecosystem enables us to create offerings that allow investors to put capital to work through differing market cycles,” Sonnenshein remarked during the announcement. “Our team has long been committed to lowering the barrier for investing in the crypto ecosystem – from direct digital asset exposure, to diversified thematic products, and now infrastructure through GDIO.”
