Outflows from United States spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) reached $1.3 billion over the last two weeks as the price of Bitcoin continues to decline.

In the same timeframe, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) has slumped 11.6%, falling from $69,476 on June 10 to $61,359 at the time of publication, per TradingView data.

The recent spate of outflows across the spot Bitcoin ETFs have been the worst since April, when the BTC investment vehicles posted total net outflows exceeding $1.2 billion between April 24 and the beginning of May.

“BTC and ETH are actually holding up surprisingly well given the rest of the market, with key support at 63,000 and 3,400 respectively, and still clearly within the price range over the past few months,” de Wet said.
