Daily Crypto Roundup: Notable Events Shaping the Crypto Landscape

Here’s a summary of the latest developments in the cryptocurrency space, covering trends, market movements, and regulatory updates:

1. Nine Spot Bitcoin ETFs Accumulate 100K BTC in Just Seven Days

  • Nine spot Bitcoin ETFs, including BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust and Fidelity’s Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund, collectively acquired 102,613 BTC within the first week of their trading launch on January 11. This rapid accumulation surpasses MicroStrategy’s BTC holdings over the past three years.

2. SEC Commissioner Peirce Asserts No Lawsuit Needed for ETH ETF Approval

  • SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, often referred to as “Crypto Mom,” stated in an interview that lawsuits are unnecessary to secure approval for spot Ether (ETH) ETF applications. Following the agency’s court loss to Grayscale, Peirce emphasized the importance of learning from past mistakes and applying consistent standards to ETF applications.

3. JPMorgan Downgrades Coinbase Stock Amid Bitcoin ETF Approval

  • JPMorgan downgraded the stock of Coinbase, the leading cryptocurrency exchange, citing Bitcoin’s recent price struggles despite the approval of nine spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The bank’s analysts expressed skepticism about the upside potential for Coinbase’s stock and downgraded it to a “neutral” rating.

Market Analysis:

  • Bitcoin’s price dipped below $40,000 again, influenced by selling pressure linked to Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). Despite GBTC outflows, Bitcoin ETFs saw net inflows exceeding $1.1 billion, as reported by Bloomberg analyst James Seyffart.
