MILESTONE | Bitcoin Gains 10% in Last 24 Hours to Reach Levels Last Seen in November 2021

So far, collectively, all spot Bitcoin ETFs had generated nearly $52 billion in cumulative trading volume.

Bitcoin’s price surged over 10% to reach a high of $56,740 at one stage on February 26 2024, marking the highest value since November 2021.

After a significant day, when the world’s largest cryptocurrency gained more than 6%  Bitcoin (BTC) finally crossed the $55,000 mark on the morning of 27th February 27 2024 at around 5:30 A.M. before surging wildly past $56,000.

The movement follows a day the nine new spot Bitcoin ETFs set a new record for combined daily trading volume, recording $2.4 billion in buying and selling activity, according to Bloomberg Senior ETF Analyst, Eric Balchunas.

BlackRock’s spot Bitcoin ETF led the way with $1.3 billion in trading volume, according to Balchunas. Earlier in the day, when BlackRock’s ETF, ticker IBIT, surpassed the $1-billion mark, it ranked ’11th among all ETFs (Top 0.3%) and Top 25 among stocks,’ as per the analyst.

The nine new spot Bitcoin ETFs exclude Grayscale’s converted fund, which also has the most assets under management. Besides BlackRock’s exchange-traded fund, the other new products are being offered by:

  • Fidelity
  • Bitwise
  • Ark 21Shares
  • Invesco
  • VanEck
  • Valkyrie
  • Franklin Templeton, and
  • WisdomTree

Including Grayscale’s fund, collectively, all spot Bitcoin ETFs had generated nearly $52 billion in cumulative trading volume through the end of last week, according to CoinShares. The new products began trading on January 11 2024.

At launch time in January 2024, industry analysts forecast that the approval of these ETFs will act as a catalyst, prompting a significant influx of institutional capital into Bitcoin. This influx has the potential to drive BTC’s value to new all-time highs and further establish its standing as a legitimate asset class.

Now Bitcoin is getting closer to its all-time high price of $69,045 which was reached on November 10, 2021.

All of this occurs ahead of the Bitcoin halving scheduled for April 2024 which will reduce the rewards paid out to Bitcoin miners from 6.25 BTC to 3.125 BTC.
