BlackRock Bitcoin ETF Ad Hits Goes ”For Kill” 

Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst Eric Balchunas said the ad for the iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) found the “sweet spot between the boring legacy fund” and “‘hey fellow kids’ type stuff.”

With BlackRock on the verge of pulling away from the pack in terms of assets under management, ”going for kill w more ads makes sense,” he said.

IBIT, together with the Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund (FBTC), amassed more than $3 billion in assets in their first month of trading. They are the only ETFs to pass that milestone in the first month out of more than 5,535 ETFs in the US.

“IBIT and FBTC are in a league of their own,” Balchunas said earlier.

BlackRock’s Bitcoin ETF Ads Aimed At Wealthy Boomer Market

BlackRock has opted to appeal to the wealthy boomer market. Its first ad, which was released on Jan. 11, was praised as “so boring it’s brilliant.”  

In the video, BlackRock’s US head of thematics and alternative ETFs, Jay Jacobs, outlined Bitcoin’s value proposition. He also explained how investors can gain exposure to the leading cryptocurrency through the asset manager’s ETF.

Fred Krueger, a digital asset investor, was among those who praised BlackRock’s earlier advertisement, and said it is more palatable for “wealthy boomers.” He added  that his generation of wealthy investors will be “happily adding IBIT and FBTC” to their portfolios.
