Excluding Grayscale's GBTC, newly launched Bitcoin ETF funds, along with institutional demand, continue to increase the value of the cryptocurrency, collectively holding USD 28 billion in assets. On March 8, Bitcoin price surpassed the USD 70,000 mark for the first time.

Reports published via X indicate that the supply of Bitcoin circulating on over-the-counter (OTC) trading platforms is running low. This leads to a reliance on public exchanges to fulfill orders. OTC platforms usually serve large volume investors such as institutional investors.

Although not an ETF issuer, technology company MicroStrategy holds a portfolio of 193,000 Bitcoins as part of its corporate treasury strategy.

The software company implemented a leveraged business strategy using hedging to finance operations and investments. MicroStrategy is doubling down on its Bitcoin strategy, recently announcing plans for a debt offering of more than USD 600 million to increase its Bitcoin reserves.
