BlackRock, the largest fund manager globally, is spearheading the movement. Just yesterday, its iShares Bitcoin Trust saw a substantial influx of $493 million, bringing its total assets under management to $5.1 billion.

Meanwhile, Grayscale's GBTC holds the most significant cash reserves, surpassing $22.9 billion. Initially functioning as a closed-end fund with substantial crypto holdings, it transitioned into an ETF in January, providing investors with greater flexibility in redeeming shares.

According to data from BitMex Research, a total of $631 million flowed into ten investment vehicles yesterday.

The influx of capital into crypto funds has propelled BTC's price, comfortably exceeding the $50,000 milestone it achieved for the first time in two years on Monday. Currently, CoinGecko indicates that BTC is trading at $51,622 per coin.

After a decade of rejecting such products, the Securities and Exchange Commission finally greenlit ten spot BTC ETFs on January 10.

Meanwhile, there's a noticeable decline in investor interest in gold, particularly among ETF enthusiasts. Bloomberg's ETF analyst, Eric Balchunas, mentioned on Twitter that funds were being withdrawn from gold ETFs.

$IBIT is experiencing a significant surge, attracting nearly half a billion dollars in investments solely yesterday. This remarkable performance signifies an unexpectedly strong momentum for a recent launch, pushing its total assets over $5 billion. In just 23 trading days, it has positioned itself among the top 7% of all ETFs by size.
