"If we take the aforementioned $14.4 billion of inflows, the model suggests it could push the price to $141,000 per Bitcoin. The problem with the estimate of inflows is that it is very difficult to ascertain exactly how much inflows there will be when the spot ETFs are launched , Butterfill added .
According to his analysis, a $31.3 billion inflow could propel Bitcoin to $265,437, marking a remarkable 627% surge from its current value of $36,565 at the time of writing.
