More than 600 firms have unveiled substantial investments in spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in their 13F filings submitted to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over the past week.

Their investments include $844.2 million in BlackRock's iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT), $806.7 million in Fidelity's Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC), $202 million in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), $45.0 million in the ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF (ARKB), and $44.7 million in the Bitwise Bitcoin ETF (BITB).

Following closely is Schonfeld Strategic Advisors, a hedge fund managing $13 billion in assets, with a substantial investment of $248 million in BlackRock's ETF and an additional $231.8 million in Fidelity's fund, totaling $479 million.

Morgan Stanley, one of the leading financial institutions, has disclosed a substantial investment of $269.9 million in GBTC, solidifying its position as one of the largest GBTC holders. Aristeia Capital, an alternative asset manager, has revealed a $163.4 million investment in IBIT.
