Blackrock Bitcoin ETF to Surpass Grayscale Soon; Just $2 Bln Gap Left


Blackrock Bitcoin ETF has shattered records ever since it received the green signal from the SEC. With a new triumph under its belt, Blackrock Bitcoin ETF could soon surpass Grayscale to become the world’s largest Bitcoin fund.

Blackrock Bitcoin ETF Inches Close to Surpass Grayscale

According to Bloomberg, the difference between Grayscale and BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) has shrunk to about $2 billion, putting BlackRock in a position to unseat Grayscale as the largest Bitcoin fund globally.

That comes after GBTC lost over $16 billion in value over 68 days in a row, leaving the ETF’s assets at $19.4 billion. IBIT’s total assets have increased to over $17.3 billion as a result of its 68 days of nonstop money absorption.

Grayscale’s Capital Withdrawals

Significant capital withdrawals have been recorded from Grayscale’s spot Bitcoin ETF (GBTC). Investors have taken $89.9 million out of the market in the last five days alone, for a net outflow of $1.6 billion since January.

But even with the early-mover advantage in the Bitcoin ETF market, Grayscale’s hegemony seems to be waning. Fidelity and BlackRock began to take sizable market shares ever since the trading started. To give an example, during the same week, Fidelity and BlackRock Bitcoin ETF, both received net inflows of $37.3 million and $18.7 million, resolving some liquidity issues the market as a whole was experiencing.

Bitcoin ETF Set For a Steady Rise

The current situation in the larger field of cryptocurrency registration points to a cautious but gradual shift in favor among the specialized groups in finance. The CEO of Bitwise, Hunter Horsley, described the acceptance of Bitcoin by multifamily offices and registered investment advisers (RIAs) as “stealthy but material.” Horsley claims that major financial giants are researching in-depth analyses of the Bitcoin market behind closed doors.

Horsley made these remarks in response to a Bitwise analysis on cryptocurrency registration that earlier this year revealed a related trend. Without disclosing their intentions to the public, these organizations are starting to include Bitcoin in their portfolios. In the meantime, the upcoming halving of Bitcoin should encourage these registrants to make more accommodations in response to market demand.
