Bitcoin Surges Past $71,000 Milestone Amid Growing Institutional Interest

By: Eva Baxter

In a historic first, Bitcoin's price is trading above $71,000, marking a new all-time high. This recent surge can be attributed to several factors including the introduction of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the U.S., upcoming Bitcoin halving event, and growing institutional interest worldwide.

Since their launch in January, these ETFs have accumulated massive holdings of the top digital asset, and their cumulative trading volumes have crossed $100 billion. Major ETFs including BlackRock's iShares Bitcoin Trust ETF (IBIT) and Fidelity's Wise Origin Bitcoin Trust account for about 4% of all BTC in circulation.

Alongside, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) has announced plans to accept applications for the admission of Bitcoin and Ethereum Exchange-Traded Notes (ETNs) in the second quarter, signifying a major step towards the acceptance of cryptocurrencies in mainstream financial markets. Tether’s (USDT) recent capital influx is also a notable factor contributing to the Bitcoin rally.

Such movements and demand for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies underscore an increasing alignment with traditional financial systems. As the countdown to the Bitcoin halving event continues, this trend may provide considerable potential for further growth in the value of Bitcoin in the future.
