Analysts at cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, David Duong and David Han, detailed the trading of spot Bitcoin-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in comments. The “Monthly Outlook: Post-ETF Trading Themes” report was published by Coinbase on February 8.

In the document, experts highlight the “short-term overestimation” related to the impact on performance obtained in January with the entry of US$1.46 billion into spot Bitcoin ETFs.

The report pointed out that currently, US spot Bitcoin ETFs only represent “10-15%” of the total Bitcoin spot trading volume on centralized exchanges (CEX) globally.

“While the launch of these products is a watershed moment for the cryptoeconomy, US-based ETFs currently represent only 10-15% of total BTC spot trading volume on global centralized exchanges and just 3% of the bitcoin in circulation, supply (or around 650 thousand BTC)”, says part of the report.

It is worth remembering that the recent rise in the price of Bitcoin (BTC), surpassing the US$45,000 zone, was fueled by ETFs. At the time of publication, the price of Bitcoin was quoted at US$47,356.03, up 6.0% in the last 24 hours. During this period, the cryptocurrency recorded a trading volume of US$27,749,295,664. Over the past seven days, the price of Bitcoin has risen 10.2%.
