Institutional Investors Drive Bitcoin ETF Inflows as BTC Nears $70,000

The past two weeks have seen a resurgence in institutional investment in US Bitcoin ETFs, with consistent inflows indicating a renewed interest in the market. Bitcoin’s price has climbed 3%, approaching the $70,000 mark.

On Friday, May 24, total inflows to spot Bitcoin ETFs reached $251 million, rebounding from a mid-week slowdown. Currently, Bitcoin is trading at $68,628, up 2.31%, with a market capitalization of $1.352 trillion.

Rising Inflows for Bitcoin ETFs

After a sluggish start to May, spot Bitcoin ETFs have seen a significant uptick in inflows. Over the last two weeks, these inflows have surpassed $2 billion, spurred by improved market sentiment following the approval of the spot Ethereum ETF on Thursday, May 23.

As of May 24, Bitcoin spot ETFs have recorded net inflows of $252 million over ten consecutive days.

Key ETFs driving this trend include the Grayscale ETF (GBTC), which reported no net inflow or outflow, the BlackRock ETF (IBIT) with an inflow of $182 million, and the Fidelity ETF (FBTC) with an inflow of $43.7 million.

BlackRock is closing the gap with Grayscale, aiming to become the largest ETF by assets under management (AUM). The BlackRock Bitcoin ETF (IBIT) holds 284,526 Bitcoins valued at $19.32 billion, while Grayscale’s GBTC holds 289,257 Bitcoins worth $19.64 billion.

This continuous influx of capital into Bitcoin spot ETFs underscores sustained investor confidence in the cryptocurrency market, despite recent price fluctuations and market volatility.

The Growing Influence of Bitcoin ETFs

The introduction of regulated Bitcoin investment products is expected to attract more institutional money to the asset class. Geoffrey Kendrick, head of forex and digital assets research at Standard Chartered Bank, commented on the approval of the spot Ethereum ETF, expressing his expectation of strong inflows for spot Bitcoin ETFs. He anticipates Bitcoin’s price could reach $150,000 by the end of the year.

Kendrick also noted the appeal of a diversified portfolio including both BTC and ETH ETFs, suggesting that the industry’s legitimacy has been bolstered by the SEC’s decision on Ethereum.

Conclusion

The recent surge in inflows to US Bitcoin ETFs highlights growing institutional interest and confidence in the cryptocurrency market. As Bitcoin approaches the $70,000 mark, the approval of additional cryptocurrency ETFs could further fuel market growth and attract substantial investment.
