Notably, the approval of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the United States has played a major role in driving the prices of the leading cryptocurrency. As reported earlier, the volume of the newly approved nine spot BTC ETFs reached an all-time high of $7.69 billion on February 28 as Bitcoin surpassed $56,000.
