On Friday (March 1), the BTC-spot ETF market saw net outflows of $140.0 million, the highest since net outflows of $158.4 million on January 24. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) saw net outflows spike at the tail end of the week, impacting net inflows for the broader BTC-spot ETF market.

GBTC recorded net outflows of $492.4 million on Friday (March 1), down from $598.9 million of net outflows on Thursday (February 29).

Despite total net outflows on Friday (March 1), the BTC-spot ETF market saw total net inflows of $1,722.5 million in the week ending March 1. Net inflows were the second highest since the launch of the Nine on January 11. Fidelity Wise Origin Fund saw net inflows pullback on Thursday and Friday, affecting the headline number.

Net outflows from Friday resonated on Sunday (March 3), with BTC in negative territory early in the session.

GBTC net outflows were Genesis/Gemini related. In February, Genesis Global Holdco LLC received approval to liquidate GBTC shares worth approximately $1.3 billion.

Despite the outflows, the Bitcoin Fear & Greed Index moved deeper into the Extreme Greed zone on Sunday.
