📢 Weekly TL;DR

Every Monday, we cover the latest developments and trends in the dynamic and ever-evolving world of cryptocurrency. From price movements, industry news and our favorite resources, we strive to provide our readers with a comprehensive overview of the crypto landscape.

Last Friday evening, the Bitcoin network experienced a significant event known as the fourth halving, where the reward for finding a new block was halved, decreasing from 6.25 to 3.125 bitcoins. Unsurprisingly, the whole thing went off without a hitch.

  • What’s the news on BlackRock's 71-Day inflow streak for the IBIT ETF?   

BlackRock's spot bitcoin ETF (ticker IBIT) did not receive any investor inflows on Wednesday, breaking a 71-day streak of inflows since its inception in January.  Seven out of the 10 other bitcoin ETFs also saw no inflows on Wednesday. While Fidelity's FBTC and ARK's ARKB saw modest inflows, Grayscale's GBTC had outflows of $130 million. Overall bitcoin ETF inflows have slowed significantly in April compared to the first quarter when they debuted.  Coindesk
