Bitcoin’s rise beyond $47,000 and nearing $48,000 corresponds with a notable $405 million inflow into the U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETF on February 8, as reported by BitMEX Research. This surge in funds, the largest of the week, aligns with the current Bitcoin price rally, piquing interest and speculation among investors and enthusiasts.

Bitcoin ETF Attracts $405 Mln Inflow

A recent report from BitMEX Research showed that the U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETF continued to attract notable inflow, despite facing challenges in the initial days. Meanwhile, data reveals that the Bitcoin ETF has garnered a total inflow of $2.11 billion since its launch on January 11.

Market Optimism Amid Bitcoin (BTC) Price Rally

The report of significant inflows into the Bitcoin ETF coincides with a period of heightened market optimism, as Bitcoin’s price rallies over 4% in the last 24 hours. Investors eagerly await the digital currency’s potential surge past the $48,000 mark. Notably, this recent rally has fueled speculation among enthusiasts, with some attributing it to a pre-halving rally.

Adding to the bullish sentiment is the surge in Bitcoin Futures Open Interest (OI), which has risen by 5.51% in the last 24 hours to reach 444.81K BTC or $20.74 billion, according to CoinGlass data. Leading the charge in OI growth is the CME exchange, which saw a surge of 9.79% to 117.23K BTC or $5.46 billion. Binance follows closely behind with a 5.78% increase to 109.76K BTC or $5.12 billion in the same timeframe.

As Bitcoin continues to capture the attention of investors and enthusiasts worldwide, the convergence of ETF inflows, price rallies, and increasing futures open interest underscores the growing confidence in the digital asset’s potential for further growth and adoption.

Meanwhile, the Bitcoin price was up 6.31% during writing and traded at $47,467.77 over the last 24 hours, its highest level since January 11.
