Farside Investors’ data further illuminates the soaring popularity of Bitcoin ETFs, revealing a staggering net inflow of $631.3 million on February 13. This daily influx represents a historic high, signaling the escalating confidence and interest in Bitcoin as a lucrative investment avenue.

The price of Bitcoin surged past the $51,500 threshold today, marking a notable milestone in its 2024 performance, with year-to-date gains reaching 21.50%.

“There’s hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into these Bitcoin ETFs per day. And there is only about $40 million to $45 million of net new Bitcoin being produced. So there’s 12.5 times more demand than there is supply being created every single day. If there is that much demand and that little supply, the price will go up to accommodate the demand. So my guess is Bitcoin gonna continue to grind up for the next couple of weeks,” renowned investor Anthony Pompliano said.
