Crypto analyst Miles Deutscher has taken to Twitter to share that financial institutions have actively begun to accumulate the leading digital currency, Bitcoin.
Deutscher tweeted that BlackRock has spurred an increased accumulation of Bitcoin by various funds, sharing a chart to prove it. According to this chart, in June, the amount of Bitcoin held by fund management companies increased from 830,000 BTC to slightly above 848,000 BTC.
BlackRock refiles with SEC
Almost a month ago, the largest fund management company, BlackRock, spearheaded by Larry Fink, announced that it had made a filing with the SEC to set up a spot Bitcoin ETF. Several large Wall Street companies followed suit. This and also the launch of the centralized exchange EDX by Fidelity and several other large financial companies pushed Bitcoin above the $31,000 level.
However, the regulator claimed that those filings were "inadequate," requiring more clarity about them.
Three days ago, BlackRock refiled its application, naming Coinbase as a "surveillance-sharing" partner.
Earlier this week, Larry Fink compared Bitcoin to digitized gold, stating that BTC can reform finance. However, by now, BTC has pulled back to the $30,280 zone.
