Spot Bitcoin ETFs Net $1.3B in May, Reversing April’s $344M Outflows – Crypto News



Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have seen significant inflows in May, recovering from April’s outflows. With $1.3 billion in inflows, the BTC ETFs are back to their high-water mark, offsetting the $344 million in withdrawals experienced last month.

Spot Bitcoin ETFs Rebound with $1.3B Inflows in May

May has been a positive month for spot Bitcoin ETFs, as noted by Bloomberg’s senior ETF analyst, Eric Balchunas. He reported that the ETFs saw $1.3 billion in inflows over two weeks, making up for the previous month’s outflows. This inflow has brought the net value back to approximately $12.3 billion since the launch of these ETFs.


Balchunas emphasized that such fluctuations in ETF inflows and outflows are normal. He advises traders not to get overly emotional about these changes, as they are an inherent part of ETF investing. He remains optimistic about the long-term net positives of spot Bitcoin ETF flows.

April was a challenging month for BTC ETFs, with $344 million in net withdrawals. On April 29 alone, around $51.5 million was withdrawn. Grayscale’s converted fund, GBTC, was the primary driver of these outflows. However, the trend reversed in May, with U.S. spot Bitcoin ETFs recording net inflows of $116.8 million on May 13, ending four weeks of net outflows.


The inflows continued with $151.4 million on May 14, $303 million on May 15, and $257.3 million on May 16. These figures indicate a strong rebound and growing investor confidence in spot Bitcoin ETFs.

BTC ETFs Show Record Growth

Despite the recent fluctuations, spot BTC ETF inflows and outflows are relatively small compared to the fund’s assets under management. Grayscale’s GBTC and BlackRock IBIT are among the largest spot Bitcoin ETFs, holding $18.27 billion and $17.31 billion in assets, respectively. Fidelity’s FBTC has also amassed $9.64 billion in assets.


The rapid accumulation of assets by IBIT and FBTC has set records in the ETF industry. IBIT reached $10 billion in assets in just 49 trading days, while FBTC achieved the same milestone in 77 days. This rapid growth highlights the strong demand and investor interest in spot BTC ETFs.
