Bitcoin Spot ETF Approval Implications: Anticipating Bitcoin’s Price Shifts

Patrick Iturra, Asset/Investment Manager & Consulting. October 18, 2023



As we delve into the dynamic realm of cryptocurrency, we must recognize the anticipation surrounding the potential approval of Bitcoin (BTC) Spot Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). Considering how a mere rumor can stir the market and given expert insights, it’s clear that significant shifts are on the horizon. Let’s explore these implications further.

1. Sensitivity of the Market to BTC ETF News:

Even unverified news can trigger massive market movements in today’s digital landscape. For illustration, when Cointelegraph mistakenly tweeted about a BTC ETF approval last Monday, Bitcoin’s price soared past $30k. As a result, this rapid movement suggested a market yet to digest the potential of an actual ETF approval fully.

2. Unmasking the Market’s Leverage Effect:

Subsequently, this unexpected market reaction brought to light some intriguing dynamics. Despite only an estimated $1 billion flowing into Bitcoin, its market capitalization swelled by an impressive $50 billion in just 15 minutes. This phenomenon, showcasing a 1:50 leverage effect, indicates that even subtle market shifts can have magnified outcomes.

3. Gleaning Insights from Financial Luminaries:

Next, turning our attention to industry experts can offer a broader perspective. Specifically, a prediction from a former Director at BLACKROCK, a financial titan, stands out. He projects an influx of $100 billion to $200 billion into Bitcoin once BTC ETFs are fully approved. Consequently, such insights from industry veterans signal massive potential changes for the crypto landscape.

4. Charting Bitcoin’s Possible Price Path:

Furthermore, integrating these insights allows for some compelling projections. Using the conservative end of the predicted investment influx ($100 billion) and coupling it with the previously observed 1:50 leverage ratio, we could foresee Bitcoin’s market cap touching $5 trillion. In this light, Bitcoin’s price could potentially climb to a staggering $246,800.


In wrapping up, while the projections are indeed compelling, it’s paramount to approach them with measured optimism. Although BTC ETF approvals promise significant market shifts, financial predictions are inherently uncertain. Therefore, it’s always wise for potential investors to approach decisions enthusiastically and cautiously.
