Bitwise spot Bitcoin ETF in top 5% of largest ETFs launched in 2023


The Bitwise Bitcoin ETF Trust (BITB) is now in the top 5% of exchange-traded funds (ETF) by assets under management (AUM) launched in 2023.

On Jan. 18, Hunter Horsley, the co-founder and CEO of asset manager Bitwise, announced that BITB took in another $68 million and bought Bitcoin (BTC). Horsley highlighted that this places the total inflow of assets into BITB at $370 million in the last four days. 

Nate Geraci, the president of the investment advising firm ETF Store, said in a post on X (formerly Twitter) that by BITB reaching an AUM of $355 million, the ETF ranked in the top 25 of the 540 ETFs launched in 2023 by AUM.

However, BITB’s AUM dropped in value at the time of writing and is now hovering at around $290 million, according to an ETF tracker created by Sprout Finance. 

On Jan. 16, the newly-launched spot Bitcoin ETFs outperformed 500 other ETFs launched in 2023, according to Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balchunas. While the other ETFs clocked a volume of $450 million that day, spot Bitcoin ETFs pulled in a total volume of $1.8 billion
