Grayscale, renowned for its Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), previously held the largest BTC market cap among institutions. However, as of yesterday, its BTC holdings have massively decreased over the recent months. 

Starting from 620,000 BTC in January, Grayscale’s holdings have decreased to just around 300,000 BTC as of press time. This decline prompts inquiries into the factors shaping institutional investment strategies within the crypto sector. 

Aside from this, the market has seen varying flows across different platforms. While some ETFs have seen substantial volume, others have reported no flows, showing a diverse reaction from investors. BlackRock’s IBIT and Grayscale’s GBTC have been among the few to note significant flows, with both inflows and outflows observed in recent days. 

With Bitcoin ETFs gaining popularity, the market is set for further development. While certain platforms may face fluctuations in flows, the overall outlook for institutional investment in the crypto sector remains positive. 

Bitcoin ‘Bull Market’ Is Over…

Since the start of this year, Bitcoin (BTC) has shown an impressive ‘bull market’, with its price soaring to $73,600. However, sentiment has shifted as murmurs of a ‘bear market’ grow louder. This shift follows a 16% decline in Bitcoin’s value from its ATH. 

Seeing different data metrics, it becomes evident that Bitcoin is at a critical price level. As bearish sentiment gains traction, it becomes apparent that the prevailing fear, uncertainty, and doubt might be a way for a potential recovery. 

On a technical note, the price charts highlight key levels. At this stage, Bitcoin has a tentative support level of around $58,500, which is crucial not to breach. Although it dipped below this level yesterday, bears failed to establish control around that price point.
