Valkyrie co-founder, Steven McClurg, recently held discussions with Blockworks regarding their Bitcoin ETF, which launched in collaboration with BlackRock, Fidelity and other partners in January.

Notably, McClurg shares that their ETF assets under management have doubled in the last two weeks, highlighting a significant increase of 100%.

This result also generated attention for other products offered by Valkyrie, such as those associated with Bitcoin miners.
