ProShare’s Bitcoin ETF Witness Massive Inflow Amid Spot ETF Trend

  • Friday’s trading volume was significant at half a billion shares.
  • Year-to-date, $BITO has been a top performer, with gains of 59.58% in market price.

ProShare’s Bitcoin Futures Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) $BITO has seen a huge surge in inflows, boosting its asset value to over $1 billion, a development that is very important for the cryptocurrency market. Speculation over the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) possible approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF has piqued investors’ interest in Bitcoin derivatives.

Eric Balchunas, Bloomberg’s Senior ETF Analyst, said that Friday’s trading volume was significant at half a billion shares, and that $BITO saw its greatest weekly inflow in a year. $BITO has shown a remarkable capacity to follow the price of Bitcoin closely, despite worries about the influence of futures roll charges on its performance.

Investors Optimistic

Year-to-date, $BITO has been a top performer, with gains of 59.58% in market price and 59.62% in NAV, as reported by ProShares. If we take a look at how $BITO has performed over the last three and six months, we can see that it has grown significantly. Holding the fund for each of these time frames would have yielded a positive return of 14.04%.

BlackRock’s filing of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) on June 15 likely contributed to the current uptick in interest in Bitcoin derivatives. BlackRock’s action has sparked a rush by other companies to submit their own applications for a spot Bitcoin ETF, even though it is still unclear if the SEC would allow such an ETF.

Both WisdomTree and Invesco have recently reapplied to the SEC for permission to launch spot Bitcoin ETFs. Approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF would make cryptocurrency investment more approachable and regulated for institutional and ordinary investors.
