VanEck Bitcoin Strategy ETF launch day volume a fraction of BITO's

The VanEck Bitcoin Strategy ETF (XBTF) shut its initial day of trading onNov 16 with “respectable” trading volume, yet one that fades in contrast to comparable launches.

Bitcoin futures ETFs offer capitalists direct exposure to possible future rates of Bitcoin without requiring them to hold any kind of Bitcoin themselves.

At market close on the Chicago Board of Exchange (CBOE), XBTF had actually gathered around $9.5 million in possessions under monitoring (AUM), as well as saw around $4.6 million in day-to-day trading volume according to This is simply a fraction of the initial-day trading volume of $1 billion the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy (BITO) delighted in onOct 19 on NYSE. BITO has actually considering that arrived 2% of all ETFs by complete trading volume.

Tommy Horan, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Australian exchange Swyftx claimed that it had actually been a “pretty subdued launch but VanEck won’t be too worried. Their [lower] fees should attract a steady rate of inflows over the next quarter.

Valkyrie’s Bitcoin futures ETF also had a relatively lackluster launch with BTF dropping 3% in price in the first hour of trading on Oct. 22 on Nasdaq, despite its $78 million in trading volume.

Eric Balchunas, senior ETF analyst for Bloomberg suggested in a Nov. 17 tweet that XBTF’s trading volume would normally be pretty good, but that it has been vastly overshadowed by BITO.

The lower trading volume on XBTF comes in the wake of the SEC rejecting VanEck’s application for a spot Bitcoin ETF. As opposed to the futures ETF, a spot ETF would allow investors to gain exposure to the current price of Bitcoin without needing to hold BTC themselves.

Overall, Horan lauded the XBTF launch but says crypto ETFs won’t hit their stride until a spot ETF is approved: “It’s great for the industry to see crypto funds getting regulatory approval, but until a spot ETF is accepted, no-one is going to be getting over their ski tips.”
