Big Week for Spot Bitcoin ETFs, Meme Coin Mania Reaches Celebrities, and More: This Week’s Crypto Recap

The previous week was dominated by news and developments on the spot Ethereum ETF front, while the current one was taken over by Bitcoin exchange-traded funds.

It almost felt inevitable after the launch of all US spot Bitcoin ETFs in early January that the BlackRock product will surpass that of Grayscale, which was actually converted from the former BTC Trust. Grayscale’s GBTC saw substantial outflows ever since it first reached the US markets, while BlackRock’s IBIT kept attracting billions of dollars worth of the primary cryptocurrency.

This moment finally occurred earlier this week as it took the world’s largest asset manager just 96 days to become the biggest Bitcoin ETF issuer. Currently, Grayscale’s fund has $19.7 billion in BTC, while IBIT holds $19.97, according to SoSoValue.

Another major event within the Bitcoin ETF landscape came on Tuesday when all such products, not just those in the US, attracted just over one million BTC.

These positive developments on the ETF front didn’t result in substantial gains for the underlying asset. In fact, bitcoin tried to take down the $70,000 mark on a few occasions and, although it breached it once, couldn’t succeed and currently sits about three grand away from it.

The weekly charts among most altcoins are quite less eventful than they were last time. However, some of the meme coin representatives have taken the main stage. PEPE, for instance, charted a few all-time highs this week, while WIF is up by more than 20%. Additionally, the meme coin realm saw the entrance of a celebrity, but more on that later.

Market Data

Market Cap: $2.667T | 24H Vol: $80B | BTC Dominance: 50%

BTC: $67,320 (+0.44%) | ETH: $3,773 (+2.5%) | BNB: $593 (-0.5%)
