Zinger Key Points
  • The total net asset value of Bitcoin spot ETFs reached $58.36 billion.
  • Thailand SEC amends rules, allowing private funds to invest in US Bitcoin ETFs.

The cryptocurrency investment landscape witnessed significant activity with total net inflows into Bitcoin BTC/USD spot Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) reaching $505 million on Monday.

The day's transactions on March 11 revealed a mixed picture of investor behavior, according to data from SoSoValue.

Grayscale's Bitcoin Trust GBTC experienced a substantial net outflow of $494 million, indicating a shift in investor preference or portfolio rebalancing efforts among its holders.

In contrast, BlackRock's Bitcoin ETF IBIT saw a remarkable net inflow of $562 million, while Fidelity's Bitcoin ETF FBTC also enjoyed a healthy influx of $215 million.

These movements highlight the dynamic nature of the market and the varying investor sentiment across different Bitcoin investment products.

The total net asset value of Bitcoin spot ETFs now stands at $58.36 billion, reflecting the substantial capital allocation to these investment vehicles and their importance in the broader financial ecosystem.

In a related development, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of Thailand has made a significant regulatory adjustment, amending its rules to permit the launch of private funds that invest in spot Bitcoin ETFs traded on U.S. exchanges.

This regulatory change opens the door for institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals in Thailand to diversify their portfolios with Bitcoin spot ETFs.

The decision came after the U.S. SEC's approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs, which are now classified as securities rather than digital assets.

This classification allows Thai securities firms to invest in them, marking a pivotal moment in the integration of cryptocurrency investment products within traditional financial markets.
