$1 Trillion Bitcoin – Crypto Braced For Sudden Wall Street ‘Fomo’ Shock After $50,000 ETF Price Pump


Bitcoin BTC 0.0% has suddenly surged, topping $50,000 per bitcoin for the first time since late 2021 and making the near 20 million bitcoin in circulation worth a combined $1 trillion (with another massive Federal Reserve “bailout” now on the horizon).

The bitcoin price, which has staged a miraculous recovery from its 2022 price crash, has ridden a Wall Street exchange-traded fund (ETF) push into bitcoin—that’s seen the likes of BlackRock and Fidelity hoover up huge amounts of bitcoin alongside a looming supply shock.

Now, as Russia’s president Vladimir Putin stokes fresh fears over the U.S. dollar’s $34 trillion problem, bitcoin “fomo” [fear of missing out] has been predicted to soon hit Wall Street.

Bitcoin’s historical halving that’s expected to cause crypto price chaos is just around the corner! A daily newsletter for traders, investors and the crypto-curious that will keep you ahead of the market.

“Wall Street doesn’t just like bitcoin, they love bitcoin,” Anthony Pompliano, a bitcoin and crypto investor who writes the popular The Pomp Letter investing advice newsletter on Substack, told CNBC in a video titled: “Bitcoin fomo has hit Wall Street.”

Pompliano pointed to BlackRock and Fidelity, which manage the two largest of a fleet of newly approved U.S. spot bitcoin ETFs, each buying over $3 billion worth of bitcoin in their first few weeks of trading. Combined, the new bitcoin ETFs have accumulated just over 200,000 bitcoin worth almost $10 billion, according to K33 Research.

“Bitcoin’s winning streak since the start of the year shows that increased mainstream demand, especially from bitcoin ETFs, will continue to drive strong upward price momentum,” Alex Adelman, the chief executive of bitcoin rewards app Lolli, said in emailed comments.

“The biggest financial firms in the world are now actively buying bitcoin to cover record-breaking inflows for bitcoin ETFs, providing new sustained tailwinds for bitcoin. Bitcoin ETFs have seen historical success in just one month of trading. As more leading institutions launch bitcoin ETFs and other bitcoin-based financial products, the resulting upward price moves will also drive more direct investments in bitcoin from mainstream investors.”

Other analysts have also predicted institutional investment from Wall Street will drive the bitcoin price higher this year.
