BLACKROCK’S IBIT LEADS WITH RECORD $192 MILLION INFLOWS

  • BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) outperformed its rivals with $192 million in inflows on April 11.
  • In comparison, Bitwise’s Bitcoin ETF attracted only $11.1 million.
  • IBIT now holds 266,587 Bitcoin, ranking it among the top 10 ETFs by trading volume on the same day.

iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) of BlackRock goes from strength to strength and beats its rivals in the cryptocurrency market. According to Farside Investors, the Bitcoin ETF spot on April 11 registered inflows of $192 million. Thus, this substantial amount of money emphasizes IBIT’s market leadership, which is even more evident when compared to Bitwise’s Bitcoin ETF, which attracted $11.1 million on the same day. In addition, Grayscale’s Bitcoin fund faced redemptions of about $125 million, showing IBIT’s better performance.

The fund now holds 266,587 Bitcoin, which is a strong growth trajectory. On April 11, it was in the top 10 ETFs in trading volume. IBIT, in the first 30 minutes of trading, produced a trading volume of $300 million. Its capitalization by April 12 is attractive at $18.77 Billion with a trading volume of $1.11 billion.

BlackRock’s IBIT draws $15 billion rapidly

Since its inception, IBIT has had a history of continuous inflows, which makes it different from other funds. According to Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas, IBIT has had daily inflows for 59 straight days, which makes it one of the top 20 longest daily inflows. Balchunas also noted that IBIT drew in $15 billion in cash in just three short months. This amount is twice the flow of BlackRock’s other 421 ETF products.

In line with its strategic initiatives, BlackRock has recently added more authorized participants for the Bitcoin ETF. Among the new additions are well-recognized Wall Street firms like Citi, Citadel, Goldman Sachs, and UBS. This growth increases the number of authorized participants to a total of nine. These kinds of strategic actions are designed to improve the liquidity and investor trust in IBIT.

Marketing activities and industry influence

While enjoying its financial slack, BlackRock has started a new advertising campaign for IBIT. As per Balchunas, the ad, which was featured on the Bloomberg homepage, is “Times Square-sized,” and it is the response that follows another successful campaign in February 2024, which also got a good response from the cryptocurrency community. BlackRock rides on the current market momentum by investing in high-visibility advertising.

This strategy not only improves the profile of IBIT but also shows that BlackRock would like to increase its activity in a growing field. With the rise in authorized participants, the firm has reaffirmed its dedication to the ETF, thereby allowing interested investors more stability and access. As the cryptocurrency landscape changes and grows, BlackRock’s strategic and marketing efforts have set IBIT as one of the top players in the digital asset sector.
