Recent trends indicate a slowdown in the outflows from Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), with each trading day experiencing a smaller decline over the last two sessions.

According to the latest assets under management (AUM) data, the Invesco Galaxy ETF BTCO is currently holding 6,898 BTC.

In other developments, Vaneck’s HODL ETF now contains 2,941.99 BTC, and Valkyrie’s BRRR ETF has a total of 2,635.29 BTC. Franklin Templeton’s holdings have climbed from 1,363 BTC to a present total of 1,421 BTC. As of Jan. 31, Wisdomtree’s BTCW ETF is holding 260 BTC. Collectively, these nine newly introduced spot bitcoin ETFs have amassed a significant 160,661.38 BTC, valued at $6.88 billion at the current market rate. Although the combined accumulation of these nine new ETFs is impressive, GBTC’s fund remains notably larger, being 3.11 times more valuable than the aggregate of all nine.
