BlackRock’s iShares Leads Charge: Bitcoin ETFs Hit $1 Billion Inflows!

TL;DR

  • Bitcoin ETFs attract record $1B daily inflows.
  • BlackRock’s iShares leads surge in institutional investment.
  • Market dynamics shift as Grayscale’s GBTC loses dominance.

Bitcoin exchange-traded Funds (ETFs) in the United States have reached an unprecedented milestone, with daily inflows hitting $1 billion for the first time. 

This investment surge indicates the growing interest and confidence in Bitcoin as an asset class among institutional investors. 

The influx of capital into Bitcoin ETFs has coincided with a notable bull run in the cryptocurrency market, propelling the daily inflows of capital stored by the Bitcoin network to a staggering $2 billion per day.

BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin ETF leads $1 billion inflows

Leading the charge in this surge of investment is BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin ETF (IBIT), which accounted for a substantial portion of the record-breaking daily inflow, amounting to $849 million. 

Other notable contributors include ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF (ARK), VanEck Bitcoin Trust ETF (HOLD), and Fidelity Advantage Bitcoin ETF (FBTC), which recorded inflows of $93 million, $82.9 million, and $51.6 million, respectively. 

The collective inflow into Bitcoin ETFs over the last 13 days has surpassed $11.1 billion, with March 12 witnessing the highest daily inflow of $1.045 billion.

In tandem with the influx of capital into Bitcoin ETFs, the market price of Bitcoin has surged to a new all-time high, reaching $73,000 at the time of reporting. 

This bullish momentum reflects growing investor optimism and underscores Bitcoin’s status as a coveted investment asset.

Shift in market dynamics: Grayscale’s GBTC loses market share

As Bitcoin ETFs gain traction and attract substantial inflows, the market dynamics are experiencing a notable shift. 

Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), once dominant in the market, has declined its market share, falling below 50% for the first time since the inception of spot Bitcoin ETFs in the U.S.

Previously, Grayscale’s GBTC held around 99.5% of the total assets under management of U.S. spot Bitcoin ETFs. Still, consistent daily outflows averaging $329 million per day have eroded its market share over time.

Bitcoin ETFs hit $1B daily inflows, market dynamics shift

The historic milestone of Bitcoin ETFs attracting $1 billion in daily inflows underscores the growing institutional interest in cryptocurrencies as a legitimate asset class. 

BlackRock‘s iShares Bitcoin ETF led the charge in this surge of investment, contributing significantly to the record-breaking daily inflow. 

Concurrently, the market price of Bitcoin soared to a new high, reflecting heightened investor confidence and optimism. 

However, this influx of capital into Bitcoin ETFs has also marked a significant shift in market dynamics, with Grayscale’s GBTC losing its once-dominant market share. 

As institutional investors continue to embrace Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, the landscape of the digital asset market is poised for further evolution and growth.
