Grayscale’s GBTC Fell 28% Amid Success of Bitcoin ETFs

Success is also reflected in the considerable inflows they have experienced. A total of over $6 billion in inflows has been recorded, with a strong recent increase observed. Fidelity and Ark Invest 21Shares have been particularly prominent in this aspect. With significant increases in inflows into their respective funds.

However, this growth has coincided with a decline in assets of Grayscale’s converted GBTC fund. Since its launch in January, the fund has experienced a 28% decline in holdings, suggesting a shift in investor preference towards newly launched ETFs.

Despite the decrease in GBTC fund assets, fund outflows have also significantly reduced, indicating lower selling pressure from investors. This could be interpreted as a sign that investors are adopting a long-term holding strategy for their Bitcoin investments, either through ETFs or funds like GBTC.
