The reduced outflow from GBTC aided the US spot bitcoin ETF sector, consisting of 11 funds, in achieving net inflows totaling $124 Million. Additionally, the BTC funds faced net outflows of $224 Million and $19 Million on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

Since Bitcoin’s transformation to an ETF on January 11, Grayscale’s Bitcoin offering has consistently reported net outflows every trading day, with the most significant outflow hitting $642 Million on March 18.

The ongoing loss of assets from the trust can be due to GBTC’s 1.5% fee, which is notably higher than that of the nine other spot bitcoin ETFs. The net outflows from GBTC on Wednesday, amounting to $17.5 Million, were lower than the prior record of $22 Million on February 26.

Sumit Roy, a senior analyst at, in an interview with Blockworks, expressed that the initial wave of sales by arbitrage traders and those shifting to more affordable funds was mostly concluded. However, GBTC’s outflows hiked in successive days, hitting $600 Million on February 29.

Roy cautioned Blockworks that it’s early to declare the end of GBTC’s outflows. He suggested that a pattern of minor outflows, or even inflows, over several days would be necessary before making such a determination.

A few of the analysts consider bankruptcy lender Genesis as the major player behind the continued outflows from GBTC. Genesis liquidating its holdings in the fund and estimates valued Genesis’s investment in the Grayscale fund at approximately $1.6 billion.

However, as per court documents, Genesis and its associated commodities had completely liquidated their nearly 36 million GBTC shares by April 2, using the proceeds to purchase 32,041 Bitcoin (BTC).
