Hong Kong asset management company Metalpha has secured $5 million for its Grayscale-based fund from Bitmain, according to a source close to the company.

As of the end of March, Metalpha has raised $20 million towards that goal. The fund invests in Grayscale products through structured derivatives, granting access to mainstays of digital asset portfolios in a way that is compliant with U.S. and Hong Kong laws.
