Despite facing substantial outflows, Grayscale’s GBTC remains a key player among institutional investors. High management fees have not deterred significant holdings, as evidenced by Susquehanna International maintaining over $1 billion in Bitcoin within GBTC as per the first quarter filings of 2024.

Meanwhile, the share price of GBTC (NYSEARCA: GBTC) jumped by 10% over the past week due to renewed inflows. However, it faced a slight drop on Tuesday, closing at $56.11. 

The price drop followed Grayscale’s withdrawal of its application for an Ethereum ETF on the same day.

Since its transition to a spot bitcoin trust in January, GBTC has seen a net outflow of $17 billion. At the time of publication, the trust manages approximately 292,217 BTC, valued at $18.4 billion, a reduction from 619,220 BTC as of Jan. 11.
