Bitcoin ETFs Surpass $10 Billion in Assets Under Management (AUM) within 20 Trading Sessions

BitMEX data shows that on February 9, the nine Bitcoin ETFs received net flows of $2.7 billion, increasing their total assets under management to $10 billion just one month after their launch.

Bitcoin ETFs have reached $10 billion in value just one month after being approved.

🚀 Buckle up, folks! Bitcoin ETFs are skyrocketing! In just 20 trading sessions, these bad boys have reached an impressive $10 billion in assets under management (AUM). That’s right, billion with a “B”! 🌙

According to our friends at BitMEX Research, net flows for the nine ETFs hit a whopping $2.7 billion on Jan. 9. Leading the pack is BlackRock’s IBIT fund, flexing its Bitcoin muscles with a $4 billion portfolio. And not far behind is Fidelity’s FBTC, which manages over $3.4 billion worth of BTC. Talk about serious money moves!

But wait, there’s more! ARK 21Shares’ fund has also joined the exclusive billion-dollar club, boasting a cool $1 billion worth of Bitcoin in its portfolio. Meanwhile, Grayscale’s GBTC has experienced outflows to the tune of $6.3 billion over the past 30 days. 😱

“B-but, I thought the Nine would weaken as GBTC outflows subsided,” wonders Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas. Well, Eric, turns out they’re only getting stronger! 💪

Now, you might be wondering how Bitcoin ETF flows are expected to evolve in the coming months. Excellent question! 🤔 Trading firms are currently wrapping up their due diligence on these investment vehicles, which means we can anticipate an increase in ETF flows. More money pouring into Bitcoin? Yes, please! 💸

Speaking of Bitcoin, let’s talk about its price action. In January, the cryptocurrency consolidated above technical support, including its 200-day moving average and on-chain mean. According to a recent analysis from ARK Invest, the price rose a modest 0.6% to $42,585. Hey, slow and steady wins the race, right? 🐢

ARK Invest believes that Bitcoin is taking over gold as a risk-off asset. In the last 7 years, Bitcoin’s price relative to gold has increased twenty-fold. If we fast forward to January 2024, guess what? Bitcoin could buy you about 20 troy ounces of gold, compared to just 1 troy ounce in April 2017. That’s some serious appreciation! We love to see it! 💰

And with the macroeconomic environment in mind, ARK Invest predicts that Bitcoin will continue to be antifragile as banks lose deposits. As inflation cools down and real rates rise, Bitcoin is here to stay, baby! 🏦

Now, let’s not forget the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This regulatory body finally approved Bitcoin ETF applications from various players in the industry, including ARK 21Shares, Invesco Galaxy, VanEck, WisdomTree, Fidelity, Valkyrie, BlackRock, and Grayscale. It only took them a decade, but hey, better late than never, right? 🙌
