Grayscale Ethereum Classic Trust (ETC) is an investment vehicle. ETC enables investors to gain access and exposure to the price movement of Ethereum Classic in the form of a traditional security without buying, storing and safekeeping Ethereum Classic directly. The Trust’s purpose is to hold ETC, which are digital assets that are created and transmitted through the operations of the peer-to-peer Ethereum Classic Network. The Trust’s investment objective is for the Shares (based on ETC per Share) to reflect the value of ETC held by the Trust, determined by reference to the Index Price, less the Trust’s expenses and other liabilities. Its activities include issuing baskets in exchange for ETC transferred as consideration in connection with the creations. ETC also engages in administrative and custodial procedures necessary to accomplish activities in accordance with the provisions of the trust agreement, the custodian agreement, the license agreements, and the participant agreements.
