Despite the recent market turbulence, the substantial inflows into the ETFs suggest institutional investors and large-scale buyers are taking advantage of the Bitcoin price dip to accumulate BTC at lower prices.

Prime opportunity to buy Bitcoin

Hunter Horsley, CEO of Bitwise Asset Management, highlighted his team’s efficiency in acquiring Bitcoin at a cost of less than half a basis point.

Horsley also highlighted a strong outlook for Bitcoin, suggesting that the current market conditions present a valuable buying opportunity for both new and existing investors. “The outlook for Bitcoin has never been stronger. For many who don’t yet have exposure, this week is a chance to buy the dip,” he stated.

During the first week of July, BITB registered inflows exceeding $66 million, increasing its total Bitcoin holdings to over 38,000 BTC.

Renowned Bitcoin critic Peter Schiff also offered his perspective on the resilience of Bitcoin ETF investors. Despite recent market fluctuations, Schiff observed that these investors remain committed to holding their assets, showing no signs of panic. “So far, there’s no sign of panic. It will likely take a much larger drop in Bitcoin before they finally capitulate,” Schiff commented.

He further predicted that a significant sell-off could occur soon, potentially leading to a capitulation among Bitcoin holders.
