Grayscale Bitcoin Trust sees rare inflows dry up as outflows return

Grayscale’s Bitcoin ETF Sees Rare Inflows Dry Up Within Two Days

Investors were buzzing with excitement as Grayscale’s spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) saw rare inflows totaling $66.9 million in May after a long streak of outflows. However, the joy was short-lived as outflows quickly returned, undoing the recent investments.

The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) ETF had been bleeding money for 78 consecutive days since its launch on Jan. 11, losing over $17.5 billion. The sudden inflows on May 3 and 6, amounting to $63 million and $3.9 million respectively, brought hope to investors. But the trend did not last long.

On May 7 and 9, GBTC recorded outflows of $28.6 million and $43.4 million, erasing the gains it had made just days before. Interestingly, Grayscale was the only spot Bitcoin ETF issuer to report outflows during this period.

In contrast, the other nine Bitcoin ETFs approved by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) saw positive or no investments. The net balance for all ETFs remained positive at $11.7 billion, thanks to the inflows to other issuers.

BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust led the pack with nearly $15.5 billion in investments, followed by Fidelity’s Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund, Bitwise Bitcoin ETF, and Cathie Wood’s ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF with net inflows of $8.1 billion, $1.7 billion, and $2.2 billion respectively.

VanEck CEO Jan VanEck, speaking at Paris Blockchain Week, revealed that retail investors accounted for 90% of Bitcoin ETF inflows. He anticipated major institutional investments from banks and traditional firms by May, signaling a potential shift in the market dynamics.

Despite the ups and downs in the ETF market, investors remain optimistic about the future of Bitcoin and the potential for further growth in the digital asset space. Stay tuned for more updates on this evolving story.
