Amidst a surge in investor interest, spot Bitcoin ETFs have witnessed an unprecedented accumulation of over 192,000 bitcoins since their recent launch, marking a significant milestone in the cryptocurrency market.
According to insights from CryptoQuant, a leading on-chain data provider, the current trajectory of inflows into spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) could potentially propel Bitcoin prices to staggering heights of $112,000 within the year.
CEO Ki Young Ju emphasized that even in the most conservative scenario, Bitcoin could see a substantial increase to around $55,000, representing a notable 15% surge from current levels. These projections are grounded in the profound impact of ETF inflows on Bitcoin’s overall market capitalization, coupled with a historical analysis of valuation metrics indicating potential price fluctuations.
“The influx of $9.5 billion in spot ETF investments monthly could have a transformative effect, potentially elevating the realized cap by a remarkable $114 billion annually,” stated Ki. Despite outflows from products like GBTC, Ki highlighted the possibility of a $76 billion net increase, pushing the realized cap from $451 billion to a range of $527 billion to $565 billion.
Drawing attention to a crucial ratio between Bitcoin’s market capitalization and realized capitalization – a measure reflecting the value of active tokens at their most recent traded price – Ki suggested that reaching the $104,000 to $112,000 threshold could signal a potential peak. Historically, this ratio hitting 3.9 has often coincided with significant price tops.
Historically, $BTC market bottoms occur at an MVRV of 0.75 and tops at 3.9.
With current spot ETF inflow trends, the top price could reach $104k-$112k.
