JAKARTA Grayscale Investments, announced the resignation of their CEO, Michael Sonnenshein. The decision was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Monday 20 May, marking a significant leadership change in the company.

A former executive from Goldman Sachs, Peter Mintzberg, will take over as CEO in August. Mintzberg brings a wide experience from the world of asset management, including his tenure at BlackRock and Invesco.

Michael Sonnenshein, who has led Grayscale successfully over the past few years, expressed his gratitude to Grayscale's team and community in a post on social media. Quoted from BlockWorks, Sonnenshein said "I am very grateful for this extraordinary opportunity and excited to see what is to come," he wrote. While there has been no official announcement of Sonnenshein's future plans, his new role will be in the spotlight in the crypto industry.


This resignation occurred in the middle of Grayscale's filing process to convert their ether trust into an exchange-traded fund (ETF). Although analysts estimate that the SEC will reject the ETF ether app this week, Grayscale remains committed to presenting products that suit market needs.

At a Financial Times event earlier this month, Sonnenshein stated that the company wants to focus on their spot products, including cryptocurrency-based products such as bitcoin and ether.

Grayscale managed to record an entry of funds of 18 million US Dollars last week, according to a CoinShares report on Monday morning. Peter Mintzberg's experience and leadership are expected to bring fresh air to Grayscale in the future.
