The crypto market doesn't seem to be doing much at the moment when it comes to price movement.

However, a lot is going on under the hood—especially in the ETF market.

Very recently, BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (also known as the $IBIT) has taken in a staggering $780 million in Bitcoin within a mere three days, reigniting the fires of hope for the average investor, and indicating a shift in the general market sentiment.

BlackRock’s IBIT as a Crypto Capital Magnet

According to data from Farside, despite the IBIT starting the week on a stagnant footing, things soon started to change when on Tuesday, the ETF raked in a staggering $274.43 million.

This number came in at $155.43 million on Wednesday, with an additional $350 million on Thursday.

Recently, IBIT achieved a milestone by becoming the world’s largest Bitcoin ETF, amassing $21.4 billion in assets and surpassing Grayscale’s previous record. Right after these two, we have Fidelity’s Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund with around $12.28 billion.

All of these metrics show a great deal of resilience with Bitcoin and the ETF market, despite a relatively slow April and May.

Bitcoin’s Price Uptick Doesn’t Reflect this Growth

Bitcoin’s price action has been impressive so far. However, the $71,500 zone remains a tough nut to crack.

Despite this relative stagnancy, however, market analysts remain hopeful, with many predicting that Bitcoin will soon break above its March peak of $73,798, on the back of the robust ETF demand and possible FED interest rate cuts.

Analysts like 30-year trading veteran, Christopher Inks also say that the ETF inflows haven’t had much of an effect on Bitcoin’s ability to break above $73,800 because “the market is made up of spot, futures, ETFs, and options […] and price at any point in time is a product of all of these, not just one of them.

Overall, the renewed interest in the Bitcoin ETF market, as well as the boom in BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust shows a great deal of promise with investor behaviour and the future of crypto investment.
