Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have surpassed Bitcoin futures ETFs in terms of market share, marking a significant breakthrough in the cryptocurrency investment environment. This change is being made against the backdrop of growing investor interest in Bitcoin and growing demand for regulated investment instruments that provide exposure to the top cryptocurrency.

Spot BTC ETFs Outperform ETFs for Bitcoin Futures Spot Bitcoin ETFs have seen a sharp increase in trading volume and popularity. Recent data from Finance Magnates indicates that spot Bitcoin ETFs now hold nearly 90% of the market share in daily trading volume, indicating a major shift in investor preferences in favor of these investment vehicles.

With only around 10% of the market share, Bitcoin futures ETFs, which were much anticipated when they were first announced in 2021, have needed help gaining traction. Debates have started emanating from the ETF community on how the BTC is slowly catching up with the gold. This suggests traders’ attitudes towards the new BTC funds were not considered in the debate.
