On the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), under the ticker BITO, an ETF based on Bitcoin futures from ProShares began trading.

Against the background of the launch, the first cryptocurrency reacted by updating the local maximum above $ 63,000.

Like Bitcoin, BITO grew by several percent immediately after the listing, but met resistance from sellers. The Block researcher Larry Cermak compared the price pattern of the new ETF’s stock to the Burj Khalifa skyscraper.

Notably, shares of the aggressive bitcoin investing company Microstrategy sank 4.5% at the market open.

The volume of trades in shares from ProShares in the first 20 minutes exceeded $ 280 million.

According to Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas, the new instrument from ProShares entered the top 15 exchange-traded funds by the most active starts in the first trading session.

The BITO rate continued its correction synchronously with the price of the underlying asset.
