Outside the US, Germany-based BTC Bitcoin Exchange Traded Crypto (BTCE) is the largest holder with 22,490 BTC. Swedish ETFs, Bitcoin Tracker Euro (COINXBE) and Bitcoin Tracker One (COINXBT) manage 17,830 BTC and 14,580 BTC, respectively. Seven newly launched Bitcoin ETFs in Hong Kong collectively own 5,789 BTC, though investor interest still needs to be paid.

Hashdex, a key player in the ETF market, holds over 7,900 BTC through its HASH11 fund in Brazil. The company’s influence extends to the US with its Bitcoin ETF, DEFI, which has 185 BTC.

US ETFs Dominate the Market

The data clearly shows that US ETF issuers are leaving asset managers from other countries far behind. Michael Saylor, a prominent Bitcoin advocate, highlighted these holdings. On May 24, US ETFs held 855,619 BTC, while global ETFs held 1,002,343 BTC. 

“32 Bitcoin Spot ETFs now hold ~1 Nakamoto of $BTC,” he stated.

Assets under management data for US ETFs shows Grayscale remains dominant despite a slight decline in market share. BlackRock and Fidelity maintain steady market shares. Other players like WisdomTree, Franklin Templeton, Valkyrie, VanEck, Invesco, Bitwise, and 21Shares hold minimal market shares, demonstrating slight variation.
