Proactive Investors – Bitcoin (BTC) flew another 3% higher against the US dollar in opening Friday trades to cap off a bullish week for the benchmark cryptocurrency.

Week on week, the BTC/USD pair is up more than 8% at a spot price of $46,500, with the bulls comfortably breaking above the 50-day moving average (MA) trend line.

The 50-day MA proved a sticking point for the bitcoin bulls in the opening stages of February, but three solid days of gains have left this resistance point in the dust.

Bitcoin’s recent rally is partially due to strong inflows into BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT).

After nearly a month of trading on the New York stock market, BlackRock’s bitcoin-based exchange-traded fund (ETF) has enjoyed $3.3 billion worth of inflows, according to the latest Bloomberg data.

Meanwhile, Fidelity’s similar product, the Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC) has brought in more than $2.8 billion.

Though large-scale outflows from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (BTC) have dampened the mood slightly, the bitcoin ETF market is evidently bolstering bitcoin’s spot price.

As for Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency gained 2% against the US dollar on Friday morning, bringing its spot price to $2,470 at the time of writing.

Solana (SOL) was another top mover on Friday morning, with the SOL/USD pair adding 2.4%.

Cardano (ADA) and Avalanche (AVAX) were also on the move, adding around 2% each.

Global cryptocurrency market capitalisation is currently stands at $1.76 trillion, with bitcoin dominance topping 53.4%.
