I would cut my losses, if your even able to. I’ve tried to sell my holdings and I cant find an exchange that will allow a deposit. Since ETC’s multiple 51% attacks, no one knows if a transaction is real or not. A couple month ago, those that were accepting deposits had a 2 week confirmation. I don’t believe any of the Bitcoin or Ethereum forks will do as well as the originals. Like it or not, first mover advantage matters.
Getting into ETH as soon as possible is your best bet. With the coming roll out of 2.0, ETH should move nicely,and you will recover. Just out of curiosity, why are you paying the huge premiums to get into the Greyscale Trust. If its a limitation of your IRA, why not get a self directed IRA? It will allow better opportunity. Also, and this is a biggie… I hope you have a ROTH IRA and not the traditional. Traditional has a benefit of investing in pretax dollars, but crypto’s are going to grow so substantively over the coming decades that your much better off investing with post tax dollars and not having all your gains taxed at the end. Better to pay 15% tax on the dollar you invest instead of 25% capital gains on the 100, or 1,000 dollars that 1 dollar is going to make.
