In the streak, the highest inflows were recorded on May 21, with a significant inflow of $305.7 Million primarily driven by an inflow of $290 Million in BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT). It has experienced a single outflow since the beginning of trading on January 11, with an AUM of $3.5 Trillion as of December 31, 2023, and a net asset of funds over $20 Million as of June 3, 2024.

Delay in Approval of ETH ETF

It was previously reported that approval and launch of trading in ETH ETF in the US Market might lead to an outflow in BTC ETF by 10-15% as the funds were expected to have a transfer from BTC ETF to ETH ETF. 

However, the delay in launching the spot ETH ETF is believed to support inflows into the BTC ETF. The ETH ETFs are now expected to experience a maximum delay of around two to three months. 

Nate Geraci, president of ETFStore, has recently mentioned that the ETH ETF’s launch period remains uncertain for an extended period, and it will only depend on the SEC now on the tenure that they will buy to approve the ETH ETFs.

Furthermore, he also confirmed that approval of ETH ETF was not a political matter, as it was believed to be since the immediate approval. To support his statement, he has shared a note from SEC Commish Hester Peirce, which was written to the Wall Street Journal, stating that the approval was based on the features of commodities rather than connecting to the political elections upcoming in the USA.
