Bitcoin ETF Investments Indicate Early Disruption of Gold Anticipated

Spot Bitcoin ETF Inflows Surge, Challenging Gold’s Market Share

The inflows in spot Bitcoin ETF have surged once again in February clocking nearly $500 million a day before. Interestingly, the pace of inflows has caught investors’ attention with many of them expecting that Bitcoin would eat into Gold’s market share sooner than expected.

Bitcoin Closing the Gap on Gold

According to insights provided by on-chain data provider Checkmate, Bitcoin is steadily closing the gap on Gold, traditionally regarded as the premier sound money asset.

With approximately $14 trillion in total above-ground Gold stock, of which 38% is considered investment grade, including $3.0 trillion in Bullion and ETFs, along with $2.36 trillion held by Central Banks, Gold has long held sway as a safe haven asset.

However, Checkmate’s analysis indicates that Bitcoin’s presence in this investment-grade sound money market cap is rapidly expanding. Currently representing 15% of the total investment grade market cap, BTC’s growth trajectory suggests a promising future in the realm of sound money assets.

Bitcoin ETFs vs. Gold

In a notable observation, analyst Bitcoin Munger highlighted the significant inflows into not one, but two Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) in the past week. Interestingly, the analyst also pointed out a striking absence of Gold in the top 20 assets with strong inflows. This observation underscores the evolving landscape of traditional safe-haven assets in the face of Bitcoin’s ascent.

Expressing a perspective on the future, Munger suggested that BTC’s disruption of gold could occur at a pace faster than anticipated by proponents of the precious metal, commonly referred to as goldbugs.
