The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) continues to lose millions of dollars in capital - and continues to put pressure on the BTC price.

According to Bloomberg analyst James Seyffart, yesterday, Jan. 22, was a bad day for Bitcoin spot ETFs.

About $640 million flowed out of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) in one trading day. Despite the huge outflow, the ETFs have so far generally been a great success. After just three trading days, the total volume of Bitcoin ETFs had already reached $10 billion.

Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas calls this an "insane" amount. By comparison, the 500 ETFs launched the year before had a combined volume of $450 million.

Bitcoin critic Peter Schiff is skeptical: "All BTC ETFs are currently in a bear market."

At the time of writing, BTC is trading at $40,015. Read this article to find out why the price refuses to rise despite the ETF's obvious success.
