The filing outlines plans to distribute a portion of GBTC shares to seed the Bitcoin Mini Trust. GBTC is Grayscale’s flagship fund with over $27 billion in assets.

While the fee structure of the proposed ETF is yet to be made public, Coindesk reports that it is likely to compete with existing low-cost ETFs. The spinoff is not expected to be a taxable event for GBTC holders.
