Bitcoin (BTC) sees a ‘spike’ in volumes of its new institutional investment products –

Bitcoin (BTC) is seeing a “bump” in volumes of its new institutional investment products – with nearly 1,000 US companies buying Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Data from research firm Santiment uploaded to X (formerly Twitter) on May 16 showed that daily spot Bitcoin trading volumes exceeded $5 billion.

In one day, seven Bitcoin ETFs, with a volume of $5.65 billion

Bitcoin ETFs have seen a lack of performance since BTC/USD reached all-time highs of $73,800.

As Santiment reveals, this week saw the seven largest US spot ETFs manage $5.65 billion in volume between them – the highest level since March 24.

“The days of whales just accumulating on the chain are over,” Santiment wrote in his comments, describing the volume as “gaining significant strength.”

In response, hedge fund manager Thomas Kralow was equally optimistic.

“This increase in trading activity is a very positive indicator for the market!” Tell X’s followers about the data.

Spot ETFs enjoyed a return to form as May continued, with positive inflows every day this week from May 17.

Even the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), previously known for significant outflows, saw modest interest totaling $27 million and $4.6 million on May 16 and 17, respectively, according to data from sources including British investment firm Farside.

In the latest update sent to Telegram channel subscribers, QCP highlighted “real institutional and sovereign adoption,” as well as Bitcoin now exiting the halving period.

“We had several sharp V-shaped recoveries when Bitcoin dropped below 60K, clearly making it a low buy zone.”

Earlier, Cointelegraph reported on increasing bullish conviction on the Bitcoin price against the dollar, with calls for new all-time highs and even $95,000 to come next.
