Bitcoin Breaks $69K Barrier, Nearing Silver’s $1.38T Market Cap Milestone

  • Bitcoin hit a two-year high surpassing $68,600, approaching the all-time high of $69,000.99 in November 2021, driven by investment flows into U.S. Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, reflecting a 50% increase this year.
  • The approval of U.S. Bitcoin exchange-traded funds has attracted major new investors, reviving market enthusiasm and momentum, with $2.17 billion entering the top 10 funds in the week to March 1.

Bitcoin recently crossed the $68,000 threshold, edging closer to its November 2021 high near $69,000. Moreover, as ETHNews has earlier indicated, it’s now contending with the silver market, with its market capitalization nearing $1.4 trillion.

But wait, there’s more: Ether is not far behind and has reached its highest price since January 2022, surpassing $3,600. Impressive, right? But what’s driving this phenomenon?

BlackRock is no stranger to the news these days

Its Bitcoin ETF has reportedly experienced astronomical trading volume, surpassing $2 billion before the market closed. Such a move not only demonstrates the growing institutional acceptance and demand for cryptocurrencies, but also signals an insatiable interest from investors. Could this be the beginning of a new era for crypto investments?

In addition, according to reports from ETHNews, last week, Bitcoin-focused products experienced “substantial inflows” of $1.73 billion, marking their second highest performance to date. ETH-focused funds followed closely, with $85 million in net inflows.

The forecasts could not be more encouraging

Now, with the wind at its back, some experts suggest that seeing Bitcoin breaking the $80,000 barrier is not just a dream. Incredible, right? But here comes the million-dollar question: is this sustainable? Following reports from ETHNews, the outlook for cryptocurrencies has never been more promising.
