GBTC’s Tremendous Outflows Continue


The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust has experienced significant outflows, with Bloomberg data indicating $7.4 billion exiting over its first 31 trading days. This trend contrasts sharply with other recently launched spot Bitcoin ETFs, which have seen net inflows.

One reason for GBTC’s notable outflows could be its higher management fee of 1.5%, compared to competitors charging less than 0.3%.

Additionally, entities like Genesis Global Holdco LLC, amidst bankruptcy, have been selling off their GBTC holdings.

Despite expectations of outflows during the fund’s potential conversion, the duration and consistency have caught observers off guard.

Though the ourflow of Grayscale Bitcoin ETF dropped to near $22 million in late February, it has rebounded now and broken the decreasing pattern.

Crypto.com CEO Kris Marzsalek recently commented on the Bitcoin price correction, claiming that the downturn would be “healthy” for the market.

“I think it’s a healthy move, um, removing some of the leverage that is built up in the system,” said Marzsalek.

Marzsalek also predicted a steady ramp up ahead, saying, “We want to avoid sudden, super aggressive spikes. We would really like to see a steady inflows into the industry… that will allow us to have about 12 to 18 months.”
