However, the halving caused some congestion in the Bitcoin network. The current minimum transaction fee on the network exceeds 1,050 sat/etc, or approximately $94. Additionally, there are more than 237,000 transactions awaiting approval, and memory usage has exceeded 300 MB, reaching 1.15 GB. This blockage was further exacerbated when the concept of runes came into use and new runes were minted.

On the other hand, Bitcoin spot ETFs saw net inflows totaling $59.55 million yesterday, marking the first net inflows following net outflows over the past five days. Among them, Grayscale ETF GBTC experienced a net outflow of $45.82 million, while Fidelity ETF FBTC and BlackRock ETF IBIT experienced a net inflow of $54.77 million and $29.27 million, respectively.
