Bitcoin grows before ETF launches
The market revolves around Bitcoin ETF information
Bitcoin continued to hover around the $ 62,000 price range yesterday. At this price, BTC is very close to the old high, only about 4.7% away from the old high. Although the BTC price is close to the old high, altcoins have not seen strong growth. Many investors are looking forward to this. Often times BTC continues to accumulate or slowly increases, we see the growth of altcoins.
At the beginning of the week, the crypto market was still about information about Bitcoin ETF. The Proshares Bitcoin Strategy ETF is the first officially approved and traded BTC futures ETF.
There are also many other Bitcoin Future ETF funds that are expected to be approved in October and November as well, such as those from Valkyrie, Invesco, VanEck, etc. Bitcoin ETFs with real BTC are guaranteed to be accepted in the future. BTC will be more accessible to mutual funds and ordinary investors.
The well-known Bitcoin and crypto investment fund Grayscale has also decided to switch to a Bitcoin ETF. The company has confirmed that it intends to request the conversion of its Bitcoin escrow service into a Bitcoin ETF product. Grayscale has a pre-existing advantage in that the company already stocks BTC and knows how to store it safely. This point can give the SEC more security before making a decision.
Since the adoption of the first Bitcoin Future ETF, the GBTC shares issued by Grayscale are no longer attractive to investors. The Grayscale Premium Index fell further (-20%). Hence, it is necessary for this company to change in order to keep growing.
The current price of BTC has made the amount of BTC profitable up to 98.9%. The high BTC win rate is always accompanied by the pressure to take profit and when there is a BTC price correction this is understandable.
The amount of Bitcoin that is deposited and withdrawn from exchanges doesn’t fluctuate much. Overall, Bitcoin continues to decline on the stock exchanges.
The Funding Rate Index is trending up, but not much compared to when the BTC price topped $ 60,000 from February to April, but we are still seeing traders having more confidence in the market.
As for the second largest coin after Bitcoin, Ethereum continues to be withdrawn from the exchange more than it is deposited. Despite the price increase, ETH continues to decline on the stock exchanges.
On-chain indicators are still showing a positive trend in the market. Still, we have to be prepared for any eventuality.
