Following a record week of inflows into crypto investment products, US spot bitcoin ETFs, notably those offered by VanEck, WisdomTree, and Bitwise, experienced unprecedented trading volumes. Matt Hougan, Bitwise's Chief Investment Officer, highlighted the remarkable demand for these ETFs, noting the trading of a record 6.3 million shares, worth approximately $179 million, of the Bitwise Bitcoin ETF on a single Tuesday. This surge in interest was not isolated to Bitwise alone, as VanEck and WisdomTree also saw significant spikes in their trading volumes post-holiday weekend, with VanEck's Bitcoin Trust ETF reaching 6.8 million shares or $400 million in trading volume, and WisdomTree's Bitcoin Fund hitting over 4 million shares or about $220 million in volume.

These volumes represent a dramatic increase from their initial days on the market, indicating a growing investor appetite for bitcoin and crypto investment vehicles. The overall trading volumes for US spot bitcoin ETFs (excluding the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust) hit around $2 billion, marking a significant milestone since their market debut. This heightened activity aligns with a record $2.45 billion inflow into crypto investment products in the preceding week, showcasing a robust and escalating interest in the crypto space.

The spotlight was also on the BlackRock and Fidelity issued bitcoin ETFs, which led the inflow surge, further underscoring the momentum behind bitcoin investments.
