    • Hello Annie.

    • Today, I'd like to discuss the recent surge in trading volume for U.S.-listed Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

    • In March, these ETFs captured over $110 billion in trading volume, which is three times higher than the volumes in January and February.

    • Well, this surge coincides with Bitcoin's price reaching record highs.

    • It climbed to a record $73,000 from around $45,000 when these ETFs started trading on January 12.

  • Annie

    • Oh, I see.

    • So, the increase in Bitcoin's price led to more trading of these ETFs?

    • Exactly.

    • The leading ETF was BlackRock's IBIT, which comprised almost 50% of the total trading volume.

    • This was followed by Grayscale's GBTC with 20% and Fidelity's FBTC with 17%.

  • Annie

    • That's impressive!👏 BlackRock seems to be dominating the market.

    • Indeed.

    • In fact, all of BlackRock's volumes have originated from inflows since March 15.

    • As of Tuesday's close, it held over $16 billion worth of Bitcoin.

  • Annie

    • Wow, $16 billion!

    • That's a lot of Bitcoin.😲

    • Yes, it is.

    • And it's worth noting that a large chunk of BlackRock's volumes come from retail investors, with an average trading size of $13,000.

  • Annie

    • So, it's not just institutional investors but also individual investors who are driving this trend.
