- Last week’s minor price rally caused inflows into Bitcoin and Ethereum investment products to jump.
- Short-bitcoin, on the other hand, saw its 10th week of consecutive outflows.
Inflows from digital asset investment products totaled $125 million last week, bringing the second consecutive week of inflows to $334 million, CoinShares found in a new report.
According to the digital assets investment firm, last week’s inflows represented almost 1% of all assets under management (AuM). As Bitcoin [BTC] rallied to the $30,000 price point while leading altcoin Ethereum [ETH] and other alts posted minor gains, the value of Aum closed the trading week at $37 billion, its highest since June 2022.
The report confirmed further that trading activity in digital asset investment products in the just concluded week remained high, with a weekly volume of $2.3 billion. This trading volume was above the year-to-date (YTD) average of $1.5 billion, indicating that increased buying and selling of digital assets within these investment products occurred last week.
Bitcoin saw some juice
According to CoinShares,
“Bitcoin remained the primary focus of investors.”
The king coin logged inflows that totaled $123 million last week. This accounted for 98% of the total inflows recorded during that period. This inflow brought the leading coin’s YTD inflows to $158 million, with an AuM of $25 billion. According to the report,
“Bitcoin investment products are now back to a net inflow year-to-date, having been in a net outflow position of US$171m just 2 weeks ago.”
On the other hand, short-bitcoin investment products saw an outflow of $900,000 last week, representing ten weeks of consecutive outflows. According to CoinShares, this accounted for 59% of investment products’ AuM. However:
“Despite this recent bearishness for short-bitcoin, it remains the second best-performing asset in terms of inflows year-to-date at US$60m.”
ETH gained, while some alts tumbled
Per CoinShares, investors showed some interest in altcoins during the period under review, with minor outflows of $2.7m into Ethereum investment products.
“Multi-asset and Solana saw minor outflows of US$1.8m and US$0.8m, respectively.”
Regarding blockchain equities, CoinShares found:
“Blockchain equities saw inflows of US$6.8m following a 9-week run of outflows.”
