Karina Saade, President of BlackRock in Brazil, described the expansion as a "natural progression", underlining the company's commitment to providing high-quality access vehicles for digital assets. IBIT39 represents a significant milestone in BlackRock's efforts to establish itself in the digital asset market in Brazil.

BlackRock's IBIT currently ranks as the second-largest Bitcoin ETF, albeit the fastest-growing since its approval by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last January. It has reached $6.65 billion in assets under management, with net inflows of $985 million in a single day.
