Bitcoin was trading around $71,200 late on Tuesday as spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) saw $886.6 million worth of daily inflows — the second best day on record in the five months since the funds launched. 

Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC) led the pack, recording $387.7 million inflows on June 4, followed by BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) which saw $274 million inflows, according to data from Farside Investors.

The top 10 spot bitcoin ETFs have seen fairly consistent inflows over the last two weeks, but interestingly, Grayscale’s GBTC, which has seen $17.8 billion in outflows since converting to an ETF, also saw a rare day of $28.2 million in inflows. 

Bitcoin has traded largely sideways for the last two weeks, and the $70,000 mark has emerged as a crucial  level in the eyes of traders. With the asset now breaching this level and inching towards its all-time high, some traders have started to revise their price targets for bitcoin upwards. 

“In previous bull markets, after 570+ days from the bottom, we saw nothing but increased volatility to the upside If we match that again this cycle, brace yourself for the next year of price action,” wrote one pseudonymous crypto trader on X.

Funding rate data from market intelligence platform Decentrader shows the funding rate hovering at around 10%. A high funding rate is typically indicative of bullish market sentiment, with traders willing to pay more to maintain long positions.

Around $115 million has been liquidated over the last 24 hours, with $74 million short positions liquidated.
