As Bitcoin reached new highs, BlackRock and Fidelity saw inflows of over $900 million in the spot Bitcoin ETF market.

BlackRock and Fidelity Record Massive Inflows

In a significant development for the cryptocurrency market, institutional investors invested approximately $900 million in the U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETF led by industry giants BlackRock and Fidelity, despite the strong outflows from Grayscale. This substantial influx emphasizes the growing institutional interest in digital assets and their increasing acceptance in mainstream finance.

On March 5, 2024, an extraordinary milestone was reached for the U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETF, as it recorded one of the highest daily inflow rates seen so far compared to its counterparts. According to temporary data provided by Farside UK, the U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETF collected approximately $662.5 million in inflows.

However, attention is focused on BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) and Fidelity’s FBTC, as these two ETFs recorded a total inflow of over $900 million. In particular, BlackRock’s IBIT saw an impressive inflow of $788.3 million, highlighting the increasing confidence of institutional investors in viewing Bitcoin as a viable asset class. Additionally, Fidelity’s FBTC further solidifies institutional support for digital assets with a significant inflow of $125.6 million.

In contrast, Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) continued to experience ongoing strong outflows, witnessing a $332.5 million outflow on March 5. Nevertheless, the overall sentiment towards Bitcoin ETFs remains positive, strengthening with positive market momentum and increasing institutional participation.

Market Dynamics and Bitcoin Volatility

In a period of increased interest in Bitcoin ETFs, Bitcoin reached a new all-time high of $69,000. Market experts particularly associate this rally with positive momentum in the Bitcoin ETF space, combining expectations of the upcoming Bitcoin Halving and the increasing demand for global digital assets.

However, the impact of Bitcoin’s price rally was short-lived, and the cryptocurrency dropped to a low level of $59,000 after reaching its peak on March 5. The recent decline sparked debates in the crypto market and reflected the volatile nature of digital assets.

Meanwhile, according to Spot On Chain, the sudden Bitcoin crash was exacerbated by the actions of a dormant whale depositing 1,000 BTC worth up to $67,116 into Coinbase. This move particularly highlights the internal volatility and speculative nature of the cryptocurrency market, influenced by alleged profit-taking.
