ProShares BITO’s trading volumes increased by 28% to $345.5 million. Grayscale GBTC saw a 67% volume increase to $197.8 million, influenced by a court victory over the SEC regarding its spot BTC ETF application.

Assets Under Management Hits 20-month High

Assets Under Management (AUM) in cryptocurrency products grew by 14% in December to $49.6 billion, the highest since March 2022.
