Alex Thorn, head of research at Galaxy, sees inflows to spot bitcoin ETFs reaching more than $14 billion in the first year after a potential SEC approval and the price of bitcoin spiking to $47,000. He also sees approval of these products possibly occurring this year.  In a recent report, Alex Thorn, head of research at Galaxy, predicted that inflows to spot bitcoin ETFs would rise above $14 billion in the first year following the potential approval by the Securities and Exchange Commission of multiple applications the agency is considering. Thorn called the availability of this product significant because it will give financial advisors and wealth managers accessibility to digital assets in a way that will be acceptable to clients seeking exposure to crypto. He also believes approval of a spot BTC ETF could occur this year before the holidays and draws comparisons between Bitcoin and gold as investment products.  Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Overcast, Podcast Addict, Pocket Casts, Stitcher, Castbox, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, or on your favorite podcast platform.
