  • Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) witnesses a significant 25% rally in trading volume after BlackRock files for a Bitcoin ETF.
  • The surge in GBTC’s share price and trading activity coincides with the growing interest in spot Bitcoin ETFs.

The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) has experienced a substantial surge in trading volume ever since BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, filed for a Bitcoin ETF with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The filing has generated increased market activity and sparked investor interest in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust.

On Tuesday, June 20, the share price of GBTC soared by an impressive 11.40%, closing the trading day at $16.85. This surge was accompanied by the highest trading volume of $10.24 million recorded since November 22 of the previous year.

According to data from CryptoQuant, GBTC has rallied by more than 25% since BlackRock’s filing for a Bitcoin ETF, reflecting the market’s positive response to the news. The current GBTC premium stands at -34.19%, marking the second highest point of the year.

Grayscale Investments, a prominent digital asset manager, has been actively pursuing the launch of a spot Bitcoin ETF. BlackRock’s application for a Bitcoin ETF coincided with Grayscale’s legal dispute with the SEC regarding the transformation of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust into an ETF backed by physical assets. As BlackRock’s entry into the market unfolds, there is speculation that it may strengthen Grayscale’s argument in the ongoing legal battle.

However, the entry of major players like BlackRock could potentially challenge Grayscale’s dominance in the market. Grayscale has been advocating for the upgrade of its trust to a spot Bitcoin ETF, and the emergence of competitors could pose a threat to its position as one of the world’s largest digital asset managers.

One significant hurdle for Grayscale is the substantial fee it charges traders. Data from The Block Research indicates that the company has generated over $230 million from its GBTC and ETHE products since the beginning of the year. Nevertheless, the annual management fees of 2.0% and 2.5% that Grayscale imposes on these assets may face downward pressure if BlackRock successfully launches a competing product, as suggested by James Seyffart from Bloomberg Intelligence.

As the market evolves and interest in Bitcoin ETFs grows, the competition among asset managers will likely intensify. Grayscale’s response to the changing landscape, along with the regulatory outcomes of its legal dispute with the SEC, will shape the future of the digital asset management industry.
