Larry Fink, the CEO of Blackrock, the globe’s leading asset manager, expressed his optimism regarding Bitcoin’s future prospects.

He remarked on the remarkable growth of the Ishares Bitcoin Trust, highlighting its record-setting pace in the ETF market. “The level of retail interest has exceeded my expectations. I hadn’t anticipated such strong demand when we launched IBIT,” Fink commented, indicating his satisfaction with the ETF’s performance.

With the approval of 11 spot bitcoin ETFs by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on January 10, including IBIT, the market saw an immediate response with most beginning to trade the following day. The Hasdex Bitcoin ETF, transitioning from a bitcoin futures ETF, also commenced trading recently.

Blackrock‘s digital assets chief, Robert Mitchnick, underscored bitcoin’s paramount importance to their clients, mentioning a secondary interest in Ethereum, but little enthusiasm for other cryptocurrencies.
