The US SEC made a historic decision in January of this year to approve 11 spot Bitcoin ETFs. American crypto investors had long asked for a spot BTC ETF, and their prayers were answered earlier this year. The approval of the BTC ETFs took the crypto market by storm, leading to BTC hitting a new all-time high of $73,737 in March.

The growing demand for BTC ETF exposure shows the rising interest in the emerging asset class among institutional investors.
