Hong Kong Nears Bitcoin ETF Approval: Chinese Financial Giants With $230N and $300B to Drive BTC Surge to $90,000

  • Chinese investors, who generally invest in gold and foreign assets, may greatly benefit from Hong Kong’s Bitcoin ETF approval.
  • A blockchain researcher emphasizes Harvest Fund and China Southern Fund’s leadership in Hong Kong’s Bitcoin ETF project.

With the expected approval of spot-based Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in the U.S., the financial world is buzzing, and Bitcoin is reaching previously unheard-of heights.

In the middle of this craze, regulators in Hong Kong are allegedly about to approve comparable investment vehicles, which would herald a dramatic change in the nature of cryptocurrency investments, in line with what ETHNews previously disclosed.

Opening Up New Horizons: The ETF Revolution in Hong Kong 

This move may open up a massive avenue for Chinese investors to diversify their portfolios, which have historically been anchored in gold, overseas real estate, and stocks.

Investors are constantly searching for safe havens to protect their investments due to the well-documented volatility in China’s equities and real estate markets, which makes the idea of Bitcoin ETFs all the more alluring.

Prominent blockchain expert Collin Brown shares the industry’s excitement, stating that the introduction of these crucial funds by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange is just a few weeks away.

The entry of two prominent fund managers, Harvest Fund and China Southern Fund, whose combined assets under management soar to $284 billion and $230 billion, respectively, is poised to transform the Bitcoin ETF market and possibly spark a wave of regional cryptocurrency investment.

From Traditional Assets to Digital Wealth

In an interview with CoinDesk, macro researcher Noelle Acheson stressed the enormous potential impact these exchange-traded funds (ETFs) might have in connecting mainland Chinese investors to the world of cryptocurrencies and giving them access to regional hedge funds and family offices.

Acheson’s observations highlight the changing nature of the investment landscape as turbulence in the market causes Chinese investors to abandon traditional assets more and more.

Markus Thielen, the founder of 10x Research, pointed out that such a change could have far-reaching consequences.

Comparing the current retail buying boom to China’s 2013 Bitcoin bull market frenzy, Thielen sees the possibility of an increase in Bitcoin’s value and importance in investment portfolios around the region.

However, as Vetle Lunde of K33 Research notes, it’s wise to lower expectations. Though encouraging, the performance of Hong Kong’s futures-based Bitcoin ETFs has not kept up with the massive inflows observed in the U.S., suggesting a perhaps muted reaction to the upcoming spot-based ETFs.
