Bitcoin Nears Trillion-Dollar Milestone Amid ETF Surge

Bitcoin’s valuation soared, nearly touching the trillion-dollar mark as its price climbed above $47,000. The first surge since March 2022 has propelled the digital currency to the forefront of financial discussions. 

Consequently, the entire cryptocurrency market cap witnessed a 3.96% increase, with Bitcoin dominating nearly half the market share.

The recent uptick is attributed to the evolving dynamics within the U.S. spot ETF sector. Analysts, like Geoff Kendrick from Standard Chartered, highlight a shift in investment flows, particularly noting a decline in GBTC outflows and a robust influx into new ETFs like BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust. 

Bitcoin ETFs’ net gain of 9,260 BTC, a $400M surge, marks the 3rd largest daily boost, reflecting rising confidence in Bitcoin as an asset.
