Crypto Monthly Report | November

Macro Outlook | November

Bitcoin has largely consolidated at the $34000-$35000 range with any climbdown from this level inviting heavy buying pressure.

The digital asset is up 25% in the last month and its market dominance has swelled to 52% – a feat it has not reached since April 2021 as market participants feed into the narrative of a spot Bitcoin ETF launching in the US.

There is growing market confidence that spot Bitcoin investment products will be approved by the SEC for the first time. Industry voices have pointed out that this could happen as soon as January 2024 if not before.

The progress of BlackRock’s Bitcoin ETF application has played a large role in stoking the enthusiasm. Market sentiment received a boost on 23 October after BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust fund was catalogued by the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) under the ticker IBTC.1 The DTCC provides clearance settlement and custody services for Nasdaq.

As the US inches closer to embracing a spot Bitcoin ETF it’s worth mentioning that financial products with similar structures have already carved a niche in Europe

ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (BTCE) is fully backed by the underlying asset and trades on several European exchanges. With an AUM of more than $800 billion and traded value of $1.5 billion YTD it stands as Europe’s biggest and most liquid Bitcoin ETP.
