Bitcoin ETFs Will Hold Over 10% of BTC Supply By Q3

Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) will hold over 10 percent of the Bitcoin supply by the third quarter of this year, an analysis by Crypto Intelligence has found.

This analysis is contingent on the applications for Ether spot ETFs in the US being rejected in the coming weeks, as the approval of a non-BTC ETF could significantly impact demand for the existing Bitcoin spot ETFs.

This is because there would be another crypto product easily available to investors and institutions, and this would potentially limit demand for BTC ETFs.

This could be exacerbated by the fact that Ether is deflationary, while Bitcoin’s supply is continuing to grow; although the rate of this growth will decrease following the April halving.

The existing spot Bitcoin ETFs already hold over four percent of the 21 million BTC that will eventually be mined, and a supply crunch – which could send the BTC price well over the $120,000 mark – is expected to take hold in the coming months.

Bitcoin has already posted strong gains as a result of the demand that is flowing through the spot BTC ETFs, and the world’s first-ever cryptocurrency is currently trading at just under the $72,000 mark, according to CoinMarketCap data.

Ethereum, meanwhile, recently jumped above $4,000, but it is still yet to get close to breaching its all-time high.
