BlackRock’s ETF Flips GBTC

Earlier this week, BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust took the lead as the world’s largest fund for Bitcoin, accumulating nearly $20 billion in total assets since its listing in the United States earlier this year.

On Tuesday, the exchange-traded fund held $19.68 billion worth of Bitcoin, surpassing Grayscale Bitcoin Trust’s $19.65 billion.

Fidelity Investments holds the third-largest spot with an $11.1 billion offering.

The launch of BlackRock’s Bitcoin ETF, along with Fidelity’s, was part of a group of nine funds that debuted on January 11, coinciding with Grayscale’s conversion into an ETF.

The approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs marked a significant milestone for the crypto industry, making Bitcoin more accessible to investors and sparking a rally that saw the token reach a record high of $73,798 by March.

Since its launch, the iShares Bitcoin Trust has attracted the highest inflow, totaling $16.5 billion, while investors have withdrawn $17.7 billion from the Grayscale fund during the same period.

Bitcoin ETFs Among Most Successful Funds in History

Bitcoin ETFs have emerged as one of the most successful categories of ETFs, amassing a total of $58.5 billion in assets.

These funds have experienced remarkable growth, fueled by the quadrupling of Bitcoin’s value since the start of last year.

While Bitcoin ETFs have proven to be lucrative investments, critics raise concerns about the suitability of volatile digital assets for widespread adoption, even within the structure of ETFs.

Some countries, including Singapore and China, have implemented restrictions or outright bans on investor access to cryptocurrencies, highlighting the regulatory challenges faced by these investment vehicles.

Despite the success of Bitcoin ETFs, Vanguard Group, the world’s second-largest asset manager, has firmly stated its lack of plans to offer any crypto-related products, emphasizing the cautious approach taken by some institutions in the face of digital asset market volatility.

The positive momentum for cryptocurrency ETFs extends beyond Bitcoin.

Last week, the SEC also signaled its willingness to allow ETFs for Ether, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market value.

On May 23, the SEC officially approved 19b-4 applications from VanEck, BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale, Franklin Templeton, ARK 21Shares, Invesco Galaxy, and Bitwise for issuing spot Ether ETFs.

Notably, several ETF issuers removed staking from their final amendments.

As reported, analysis firm Kaiko has said that Grayscale’s forthcoming spot Ethereum ETF may face significant outflows, potentially averaging around $110 million per day.
