Bitcoin ETFs Outperform Gold ETFs, Says Ripple’s Garlinghouse – Eyes on XRP

Ripple XRP

  • Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse highlighted the rapid growth and strong investor interest in the cryptocurrency world comparing Bitcoin ETF’s significant performance to gold ETFs.
  • The anticipation of the XRP ETF suggests a more bullish outlook not only for XRP but the entire crypto world.

Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse, in a noteworthy observation, stated that Bitcoin ETFs have exhibited an exceptional performance outshining gold ETFs. Contrasting between Bitcoin ETFs and Gold ETFs’ asset accumulation and inflows, Garlinghouse highlights the significant milestone in the evolution of asset classes.

This shift has further proved the growing confidence and interest investors have in cryptocurrency-based ETFs. According to Brad, Bitcoin ETFs have experienced a significantly steeper upward trajectory compared to that of gold ETFs. 

Brad compared the listing of SPDR Gold Shares ETF on New York Shares in 2004 to the debut of  BlackRock’s IBIT Bitcoin ETF. After the birth of  SPDR Gold Shares ETF, it took the investment fund 3 years to accumulate $10 billion worth of assets. Nevertheless, it has only taken BlackRock’s IBIT Bitcoin ETF 5 months to accumulate double the amount  SPDR Gold Shares ETF amassed. 

 It took 2 months for Bitcoin ETFs to reach what took Gold ETFs over a year, Garlinghouse emphasized.

This significant growth is a symbolic gesture of a broader trend in the financial system. Investors are highly seeking exposure to cryptocurrency. This is in search of high gains and the diverse benefits the cryptocurrency world can provide. Additionally, Garlinghouse stated that it doesn’t end with Bitcoin ETF, the approval of Ethereum ETF will follow the successful trend expressing a positive outlook for the cryptocurrency industry. 

Brad also highlighted the importance of having diversified investments. According to Garlinghouse, people are not satisfied with exposure to just a single asset. He drew comparisons with gold ETFs which were followed by multi-commodity funds which he thinks that crypto ETFs are likely to pave the way for asset diversification. 

People don’t want just exposure to one commodity, Garlinghouse noted. So if you have exposure to gold, you might want exposure to silver […] so to me, it only makes sense that you don’t want to have just a single-threaded asset exposure.

Following Brad’s line of thought, it is only reasonable for the approval of different crypto ETFs including, Ethereum, XRP, and others. Such investment funds would fully cater to the wants of investors who want to disseminate their assets rather than just betting on the success of just one.

Investors Eye XRP as the Next Breakout Coin

Falling in line with Bitcoin ETFs, Brad focused his spotlight on XRP and a potential ETF. As earlier reported by Crypto News Flash, the XRP CEO predicted that the community could see the launch of XRP ETF as early as next year. He further noted that “an XRP ETF is simply inevitable”.  

This optimism was later supported by Ripple’s President, Monica Long, who highlighted XRP’s strong market position and substantial daily trading volumes. She stated that the aforementioned factors make XRP ETF put the XRP at the cutting edge. 

It is evident that ETFs are leading to price surges driven by enhanced accessibility and increased institutional investment. 

The anticipation of the approval of XRP ETFs has already sparked speculations about XRP’s price which currently trades at$0.527, a 0.58% surge in the past week. This surge further suggests the positive market sentiment surrounding the XRP token.
