Analysts at the Norwegian company Arcane Research, which prepared this analysis, also published interesting findings regarding the fact that hedge funds increased short exposures in particular.

According to them, one of the main reasons could be Grayscale, which offers a discount on its investment product Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). However, most funds can expect the GBTC discount to disappear soon, so they are likely to try to secure this position with futures.

The last major companies to invest in GBTC include companies such as Morgan Stanley, which owns more than 6.5 million shares, but also the Bill Millers fund with 1.5 million GBTC shares.
