Cathie Wood’s investment fund ARK Invest offloaded around $1.8 million of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) and $1.7 million shares of Coinbase (COIN) for the second straight day.

According to a disclosure, ARK Next Generation Internet ETF moved to sell 21,062 shares of COIN and 72,509 units of GBTC as the market closed on Tuesday.

Bitcoin (BTC) is closing in on a 16-month high, with options data suggesting that the bull market still has considerable momentum.

Sentiment suggests that bitcoin’s rise is driven by the anticipation of a potential spot ETF approval. ARK Invest is capitalizing on the bullish sentiment by selling GBTC shares and adjusting its portfolio with Coinbase and Robinhood stocks.
