Additionally, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) displays a similar narrative.

This figure represents the smallest discount to NAV observed this year. It harks back to a similar low in mid-2021 when the premium flipped to a discount. Interestingly, just a year ago, in November 2022, the discount to NAV was significant, at -50%.
