We are pleased to introduce a new crypto research report published by Moodys, one of the world’s leading providers of data, intelligence and credit ratings. Kaiko was interviewed as part of Moodys “Bits, Bytes & Basis Points” series, where we explored the impact of the spot bitcoin ETF on cryptocurrency markets.
The report breaks down the following crypto trends:

Volumes of spot ETF trading have surged globally since the launch of ETFs. Since 11 January, Bitcoin trade volume has hit multiple new multiyear highs, at one point topping $46 billion.

Bitcoin liquidity has increased since the launch of spot ETFs. Since January, as measured by market depth – the quantity of bids and asks on an order book – Bitcoin market depth has surged from approximately $400 million to roughly $500 million across all exchanges.

ETFs can amplify market downturns. If there is an event that triggers large outflows, ETF issuers will need to liquidate their holdings, which could weaken values in crypto markets.

Bitcoin’s halving will likely be positive for its price, if spot ETF inflows remain strong. The launch of the spot ETFs has created a sharp reduction in Bitcoin’s supply. Should ETFs continue to generate large inflows, there will be a bullish impact on Bitcoin’s price posthalving.
