Bitcoin ETFs See Buying Resurgence; 'Mr.100' BTFD As Grayscale Sees First Inflow Since Jan

•, by Tyler Durden

GBTC has dominated the outflows since inception (adding up to around $17.5 billion) since the 11 spot ETFs were launched on Jan 11. The inflow coincided with a sudden surge in aggregate net inflows to ETFs overall of $378 million on Friday (which came two days after a record net outflow of $563 million)...

CoinTelegraph's Ciaran Lyons reports that pseudonymous crypto investor DivXman told his followers that the GBTC was the "primary source" of sell pressure across all spot Bitcoin ETFs, but "the tides" could be turning.

"That effectively means a significant decrease in sell pressure and additional increase in demand while ETFs collectively are buying more BTC than miners can create," he explained to his 20,800 X followers in a May 3 post.

Crypto trader Jelle predicted to his 80,300 X followers on the same day that Bitcoin's new all-time high is on the horizon.

"60 million dollars worth of inflows for Grayscale's ETF. The halving chop will come to an end, and 6-figure Bitcoin will follow shortly after."

Bitcoin's price responded to this sudden inflow surprise and rallied back above $64,000, erasing the outflow-driven plunge from last week...

Additionally, CoinTelegraph reports that bitcoin whale entity nicknamed "Mr. 100" has bought the Bitcoin dip for the first time since the Bitcoin halving.

Meanwhile, multiple market analysts suggest that the local Bitcoin bottom may be in as the price bounces from $56,000 lows.

The Mr. 100 whale wallet has added over 4,100 BTC worth over $242 million, around the $58,000 markaccording to on-chain data from Bitinfocharts, as noticed by X user HODL15Capital.

This represents the wallet's first Bitcoin purchases since April 19, the day before the 2024 Bitcoin halving.

The wallet has been adding at least 100 BTC nearly every day since Feb. 14, except for the post-halving period.
