Investors Flock to Bitcoin ETFs

In the first half of the year, spot Bitcoin ETFs attracted substantial interest, leading to billions of dollars in net inflows. This surge captured widespread attention, creating lucrative opportunities for companies issuing leveraged funds. Notably, the introduction of the first Bitcoin futures ETFs in late 2021 marked a significant shift in the market landscape. Companies like REX Shares and Tuttle Capital Management have further expanded options for risk-seeking investors through innovative offerings.

T-REX and Bitcoin: What Are the New ETFs?

On July 10, REX Shares and Tuttle Capital Management introduced two new exchange-traded funds aimed at those willing to embrace higher risk: the T-REX 2X Long Bitcoin Daily Target ETF (CBOE: BTCL) and the T-REX 2X Inverse Bitcoin Daily Target ETF (CBOE: BTCZ). These funds allow investors to take double long and short positions, respectively. Despite being categorized as paper Bitcoin assets, they channel cash flows into derivative products instead of directly into Bitcoin, hence not significantly affecting the spot price.

Farside Investors reported approximately $650 million flowing into BTC ETFs since July 5, even in a turbulent market. This influx adds to REX Shares’ substantial assets under management, which have surpassed $5 billion. The company manages leveraged products with significant market values, including T-REX funds that have attracted $1 billion since the previous year.

Which ETFs Are More Cost-Effective?

Investors have various ETF options for Bitcoin, with spot ETFs offering significantly lower transaction fees compared to futures ETFs. While 2x leveraged BTC funds provide secure investment entries, the approval of spot ETFs has garnered significant attention in risk-prone markets. A report by GSR Markets reveals that leveraged ETFs tend to underperform relative to the underlying asset due to the fixed leverage trap, which forces funds to buy low and sell high to maintain leverage targets. Additionally, management fees for these funds are not as competitive as those for spot BTC ETFs.
