BlackRock and Fidelity: Bitcoin ETFs Take Center Stage in Their Fund Offerings

Crypto News- In less than two months since their launch, BlackRock’s IBIT and Fidelity’s FBTC Bitcoin ETFs have skyrocketed to the forefront of the investment world, boasting unprecedented popularity. Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balchunas shared data revealing their meteoric rise, with IBIT and FBTC emerging as the most sought-after funds in BlackRock’s and Fidelity’s portfolios, respectively.

Since their introduction on January 11, these Bitcoin ETFs have consistently shattered records, surpassing even the most optimistic projections. Despite BlackRock’s extensive array of 420 ETFs, IBIT has accounted for more than half of the company’s net inflows for the year, attracting capital at double the rate of any other offering. Similarly, FBTC has dominated Fidelity’s portfolio, capturing a staggering 70% of year-to-date flows and outpacing all other ETFs by a factor of five.

Remarkably, IBIT and FBTC have maintained a remarkable streak of continuous cash inflows for 49 consecutive days, a feat rarely achieved in the ETF market. This places them among the top performers, trailing only a select few with over 100 days of uninterrupted growth.

The sustained interest in IBIT and FBTC underscores the growing confidence among investors in Bitcoin-related ETFs. Despite market fluctuations, recent data challenges the notion that ETF investors panic-sell during downturns. Balchunas notes that even as Bitcoin prices dipped by 8%, the “Newborn Nine” ETFs collectively received $1.2 billion in investments over the past five days.

Moreover, while some observed outflows in $GBTC, these were primarily strategic exchanges by Genesis and did not reflect a broader lack of confidence among ETF investors. Historical data further reinforces the resilience of ETF investors, who continued to pour money into ETFs during significant market downturns in 2008 and 2021.

In essence, the success of IBIT and FBTC signals a new era of strategic and confident investing in the cryptocurrency market through traditional financial channels.
