Must read

Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds have continued to capture the attention of investors in the United States after a brief hiccup. These funds have resumed positive flows, marking the fourth consecutive day of net inflows, concluding March on a strong note.

In yet another milestone, the total net inflow for spot Bitcoin ETFs reached $183 million on March 28.

Net Inflows Exceed $12 Billion

According to SoSo Value data, the latest figures contributed to a cumulative net inflow of almost $12.13 billion. Leading the pack as usual was BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin ETF (IBIT) with more than $95 million net inflows, followed closely by Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC) with $69.09 million.

Bitwise’s BITB and ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF (ARKB) recorded $67 million and $27.6 million in inflows, while VanEck’s HODL settled with inflows of $20 million.

On the other hand, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) witnessed continued net outflows as usual, shedding nearly $105 million from its product, which was the lowest since March 12th.

The figures come after a minor setback with five consecutive days of outflows spot Bitcoin ETFs from March 18th to 22nd. During this time, Bitcoin briefly plunged below $63,000, sparking concerns among market participants.
