BlackRock races to the bottom with new Bitcoin ETF fee

1 Mins read

BlackRock cuts its fee for the potential Bitcoin ETF, looking to crush the competition before the products even reach the market.

BlackRock, a global investment management behemoth, has announced a significant fee reduction for its spot Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF), setting a new competitive standard in the cryptocurrency investment space. This is a significant play by the world’s top asset management firm amid fierce competition in the still unexisting United States Bitcoin spot ETF space.

The race to the bottom

Similarly, Ark Invest also decreased its fee to 0.25%. Bitwise chose a slightly different approach by offering zero fees for the first six months or until the fund reaches a certain size. After that, the fund will charge 0.39% — down from the previous 0.59%.

According to a Jan. 10 tweet by Eric Balchunas — a senior ETF analyst at Bloomberg — BlackRock has reduced the fee on its spot Bitcoin ETF to 0.25% and even further to 0.12% for the first $5 billion. The move is seen as an aggressive strategy to outpace competitors in the burgeoning ETF market for cryptocurrencies.

Balchunas highlighted that this fee cut is a bold play by BlackRock, aiming to dominate the market even before other products have a chance to establish themselves. The intense competition is indicative of the expected demand and investment interest in digital assets, suggesting a fierce battle for market share among ETF providers.
