Bitcoin is now roughly 2% away from reclaiming its current all-time high of $64,804 set in mid-April on the day the Coinbase exchange went public.

The world’s largest cryptocurrency is stealing the spotlight following the much-anticipated launch of the very first Bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund.

ProShares’s futures-based Bitcoin ETF has traded a staggering $320 million during its first 30 minutes of trading. James Seyffart of Bloomberg Intelligence described this level of demand as “insane.”

In other news, leading cryptocurrency asset manager Grayscale has officially filed with the U.S. Securities and Commission to convert the world’s largest Bitcoin fund into a spot ETF, describing it as the “next natural step.”

 During his appearance on CNBC, SEC Chair Gary Gensler said that futures-based ETFs benefit from years of oversight. He also cautioned his listeners that Bitcoin is still a highly speculative asset class.
