According to data from BitMEX Research, BlackRock’s Bitcoin spot ETF – IBIT – has now set a new record, achieving a total net inflow of $2 billion. This feat allows IBIT to maintain its position as the best-performing fund of the bunch, following the approval of 11 Bitcoin spot ETFs by the US Securities and Exchange Commission on January 10.
BlackRock’s IBIT Maintains Dominance As Total Net Flows Reach $744.6 Million
On January 25, which marked the tenth trading day of the Bitcoin spot ETF market, BlackRock’s IBIT produced an unsurprising positive performance, notching $170.7 million in inflows. This gain allowed the investment fund to move into an exclusive list as the first Bitcoin spot ETF to amass $2 billion in market cap.
Commenting on this feat, Bloomberg analyst James Seyfarrt has credited the recent rise in BTC’s price as a major contributing factor. He said:
Following the trading debut of BTC spot ETFs on January 11, IBIT quickly emerged as an investor’s favorite, recording the highest individual daily inflows of the market at $386 million on January 12. BlackRock’s BTC spot ETF has managed to retain this investors’ attention over the first two trading weeks, evidenced by its consistent positive performances, which has culminated in a total flow of $2.086 billion.
IBIT’s performance is closely followed by Fidelity’s FBTC, which recorded $101 million in inflows on January 25, moving its total flows to $1.825 billion. Meanwhile, other Bitcoin spot ETFs with notable performances include Bitwise’s BITB and Ark Invest’s ARKB, both of which boast individual cumulative AUMs of over half a billion dollars.
In other news, the outflows in Grayscale’s GBTC remain a constant trend; however, there has been a notable decline in selling volume over the last few days. At the time of writing, GBTC’s total outflow is valued at $4.786 billion. In comparison with a cumulative inflow of $5.53 billion, total flows in the Bitcoin spot ETF market stand at $744.6 million.
Bitcoin Price Overview
At press time, Bitcoin is currently trading at $41,725.19 following a 4.52% price gain in the past day, according to data from CoinMarketCap. This recent uptick is quite significant, considering the asset’s previous bearish form, marked by a 20% decline over the last two weeks which resulted in BTC’s dipping below $39,000.
Bitcoin’s price has been negatively affected by GBTC’s massive outflows; however, as the selling pressure appears to be decreasing, coupled with consistent positive performances of other ETFs, notably BlackRock’s IBIT, that crypto market leader could soon pull off a market recovery.
