Crypto sleuths have discovered a document that suggests the crypto asset management giant Grayscale could be gearing up to support Chainlink (LINK).
A popular Chainlink enthusiast on Twitter discovered the documents, and warns the filing could be an elaborate hoax designed to pump the coin.

This is not the only altcoin trust bearing the Grayscale name that has surfaced.
Whether they have anything to do with the company or not, a search on Delaware’s Division of Corporations website also shows the “Grayscale Decentraland Trust (MANA)” and the “Grayscale Basic Attention Token Trust (BAT).”
Grayscale’s official line of products offer clients exposure to Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Horizen (ZEN), Litecoin (LTC), Stellar Lumens (XLM), and Zcash.
The firm also offers the Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund, which provides exposure to a basket of crypto assets.
In recent months, Grayscale has consistently made headlines for buying huge quantities of Bitcoin on behalf of its institutional clients.
At time of publishing, the firm manages $25.5 billion in crypto. The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is by far its most popular product, with $21 billion in assets under management. Ethereum holds the number two spot at $3.6 billion.Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get crypto email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
