Bitcoin Price Declines as Significant Amounts Are Withdrawn from Spot ETFs.


Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Prices Drop as Outflows from ETFs Continue to Impact Sector

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies experienced a dip in value on Wednesday as outflows from exchange-traded funds continued to impact the market. Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, fell by 3.2% over the last 24 hours to $62,143, marking its lowest level since last Friday.

The decline comes after Bitcoin reached a record high near $74,000 in mid-March, driven by a surge of interest from new spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs). However, factors such as outflows from ETFs and a decrease in circulating supply held by investors have put pressure on the price.

According to cryptocurrency data platform Dune, around $710 million has flowed out of Bitcoin spot ETFs over the past week. Despite this, Bitcoin is still trading within the range established after its surge above $60,000 in late February, with cumulative net inflows into Bitcoin spot ETFs since their launch standing at around $11.1 billion.

In addition to Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies also saw declines, with Ether dropping by 4.4% to $2,982, Cardano down 2.9%, Polygon falling by 5.9%, and Dogecoin experiencing a 7.5% decrease.

Analysts are closely monitoring the market dynamics to understand the impact of ETF outflows and investor behavior on cryptocurrency prices. For more insights on the cryptocurrency market, readers can reach out to Adam Clark at adam.clark@barrons.com.
