Blockchain analytics firm Glassnode has estimated a substantial influx of investor demand following the approval of Bitcoin Spot ETF. The analysis indicates around $70 billion in new money flowing into Bitcoin, potentially setting the stage for a BTC price rally.
Bitcoin Spot ETF Set To Ignite New Inflows
Blockchain data and intelligence provider, Glassnode has recently published research insights on the potential impacts of Bitcoin Spot ETF approvals on the price of Bitcoin and the broader crypto market. The on-chain analytics company has predicted about $70.5 billion flowing into Bitcoin from increased demand from institutional investors.
Glassnode bases its analysis on the assumption that substantial portions of capital invested in the stocks, bonds, and gold market might shift toward Bitcoin investments. The blockchain analytics firm has stated that this influx of new capital could have a huge effect on the Bitcoin market, potentially driving its price to greater levels.
“Based on these assumptions, we estimate approximately $60.6 billion could flow into Bitcoin from the combined stock and bond ETFs, and about $9.9 billion from the gold market, totaling around $70.5 billion in potential new capital influx,” Glassnode stated.
“This significant infusion of new capital could have a considerable impact on Bitcoin’s market, potentially driving up its price as it gains broader acceptance and becomes integrated into more traditional investment portfolios.”
Bitcoin Futures And Altcoins Soar On BTC ETF Hype
Glassnode has extended its analysis to examine how Spot Bitcoin ETF applications are influencing Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Bitcoin futures and various altcoins.
The blockchain analytics firm has stated that the recent crypto market recovery has been driven by the surrounding anticipation of Spot Bitcoin ETF potential approval by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

“The market’s upward trajectory was largely driven by the anticipation of Spot BTC ETF approvals, with market movements significantly influenced by updates on filings from major financial entities like Invesco and BlackRock,” Glassnode stated.
The on-chain analysis firm revealed that the growing optimism in Spot Bitcoin ETFs has caused a notable increase in Bitcoin futures on CME. According to the blockchain intelligence provider, CME Bitcoin futures rose to an all-time high of 27.8%, exceeding Binance for the first time since the start of the crypto bear market.
Various other altcoins like Ethereum and Solana also experienced staggering price increases. Solana surged by 79.05%, and Ethereum’s price is presently above the $2000 mark.
The most notable increase caused by the ongoing hype on Spot Bitcoin ETFs was seen in Bitcoin. BTC surged above $37,000 as the optimism of regulator approvals for the first Spot Bitcoin ETF spread.
Additionally, institutional engagement in open interest in Bitcoin call options also rose by $4.3 billion, marking an 80% increase to surpass $9.7 billion. These recent spikes in investor demand and crypto prices have signaled a potential bullish trajectory for the maturing crypto market.
