Both the stock will now be available for OTC markets as:

Grayscale’s trusts provide a means of investing in cryptocurrencies without having to actually hold the tokens.

According to Grayscale, this strategy avoids:

“the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping digital Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin directly.”

Shares of Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin are the fifth and sixth public offerings from Grayscale.

Grayscale has also received approval to list shares of major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Ethereum Classic (ETC).

Meanwhile, Horizen (ZEN), Stellar Lumens (XLM), XRP, and Zcash (ZEC) are also available for trading through a trust at the investment firm.

According to CoinMarketCap, BCH is currently rated as the fifth largest token by market cap, while LTC is ninth.
