Bitcoin prices increased over the technical support in January with a 200-day MA ($29,902) and on-chain average ($33,487) as per data projections shared by Ark Invest.

In the next 30 days, the price of the flagship cryptocurrency increased by 0.6%, reaching $42,585. Ark Invest has also projected that Bitcoin has overtaken gold as a risk-averse asset class. The firm has noted that Bitcoin prices in comparison to gold have increased by 20 times during the last 7 days.

The analysts have noted that investors can purchase 1 troy oz of gold in January, 2024 for the same price of 1 troy oz of gold in April, 2017. The firm noted that the trend is going to gain mainstream popularity provided that it continues its role to contribute to the financial markets.

Ark Invest also shared details regarding the macroeconomic factors. The analysts have noted that while inflation continues to drop, the real rates overtake; Bitcoin prices can remain stable while bank deposits decline.

Bitcoin ETF Listings and Spot Market Trading

Jason Warnick, CFO of Robinhood, noted during the Q4 2023 results that direct Bitcoin investments have continued to remain popular among investors. He was commenting on the impact of Bitcoin ETF listings on 13th February 2024.

On this account, the CFO noted that 5% of the account holders on the online trading platform invested in ETF shares while 95% of the investors continued direct Bitcoin trading.

The CFO further stated that the listing of Bitcoin ETFs is proven to be additive rather than draining impact. Warnick noted that some Bitcoin ETFs on Robinhood arrived from investors who added spot ETF shares to their retirement accounts.

Robinhood has listed all 10 spot Bitcoin ETF shares that were approved by the SEC on 10th January this year.

Meanwhile, Robinhood reported an increase in its overall Q4 earnings. The platform attributed the increment to the increase in the overall crypto trading volume that printed $4 million for the same duration noting an increase of 10% on a year-over-year scale.

The firm declared that for Q4, the overall crypto trading volume increased by 89% in comparison to the previous quarter. Additionally, the final quarter of last year also reported an increase in total account holders and aggregate trading volume.
