Bitcoin Bulls Buoyed by Report of FTX's $1B GBTC Sale

So while the new spot ETFs have gathered more than 94,000 bitcoin and $3.9 billion in assets under management (AUM) since opening for trade (data through Jan. 19), the bears are pointing out that 53,000 of those tokens may just be GBTC holders moving their money into the lower cost vehicles. (GBTC charges a 1.5% management fee, at least 1 percentage point more than nearly all of the new funds.)
