According to the firm’s daily trade summary, the ARK Next Generation Internet ETF bought 1,046,002 shares of Grayscale Bitcoin Trust on Tuesday.
The $5.8 billion ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (ticker: ARKW), managed by top fund manager Cathie Wood, is one of the ETFs with the most Bitcoin in its portfolio.
Weightage of ARK funds in GBTC
The bitcoin exchange Coinbase Global has a 3.3 percent weighting in the ETF, or $189 million in shares (COIN). The ARK Next Generation Internet ETF has gained 4.6 percent during the same time period, with a gain of 1.7 percent on Tuesday alone.
The Grayscale fund, which was already trading at a discount to Bitcoin’s price, did not lose as much as the cryptocurrency’s value. The fund has 4.57 weight in GBTC, as of Wednesday. The trust’s shares make up the ARK Next Generation Internet ETF’s third largest holding (behind only Square and Tesla).
According to Wood, the recent correction has increased the chances of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund getting approved by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Because such a product is less likely to be approved when prices are at all-time highs, it is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Meanwhile, the ARK Innovation ETF bought 214,718 shares of Coinbase, the country’s largest bitcoin exchange.
