Bitcoin ETFs Witness Record $742 Million Outflow in 3 Days

Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) encountered their most significant three-day withdrawal since their launch in January, signaling a notable shift from the earlier high demand that drove Bitcoin to its peak. Over the span of Monday to Wednesday, these ETFs experienced a combined withdrawal of $742 million, reflecting substantial outflows from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust alongside a decrease in new investments from major firms like BlackRock and Fidelity Investments.

Despite this recent trend, Bloomberg data reveals that these ETFs have amassed $11.4 billion in net investments since their inception, positioning them as some of the most successful ETF launches to date. Notably, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, now operating as an ETF, reported outflows totaling $13.3 billion.

While traditional assets like global stocks and gold continued their upward trajectory, Bitcoin experienced a temporary cooling of its rally as the market absorbed the ETF outflow data. However, Bitcoin’s value surged by over 5% today, buoyed by indications from the Federal Reserve suggesting potential interest rate cuts, which lifted various asset classes.

Furthermore, the stock prices of companies heavily involved in Bitcoin, such as MicroStrategy—the largest BTC holder—saw a notable increase of 15% today. Similarly, stocks of leading Bitcoin mining companies like Marathon Digital and Riot Blockchain also saw a modest recovery following Bitcoin’s upward movement.

The recent fluctuations in Bitcoin ETFs and the subsequent market reactions underscore the evolving dynamics of cryptocurrency investments amid broader economic factors and regulatory developments.
