Major Bitcoin ETF warning made by Samson Mow

This week saw astonishing outflows from spot-based Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, with $742 million leaving the ETFs within three days. As suggested by experts, the primary cause for these outflows is yet another massive withdrawal of Bitcoin from Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC); investors are exiting Grayscale as it charges significantly higher fees than its competitors on the ETF market. Among those who reacted to the outflow news was Samson Mow, CEO at Jan3 and “$1 billion per BTC” advocate. In his latest X post, Mow expressed his optimism regarding the future of Bitcoin and its price surge, writing that he believes in withdrawals eventually turning back into inflows. Thus, he advised the Bitcoin community to “plan accordingly.”

The upgrade demonstrates Litecoin’s dedication to improving its functionality and technology, marking a crucial milestone in the project’s ongoing progress.
