The recent surge in funding for digital asset investment products particularly Bitcoin which accounted for about 98% of total inflows.
Among the digital asset investment products, Bitcoin (BTC) the most prominent cryptocurrency had a significant increase in funding. To add insult to injury, Bitcoin was responsible for roughly 98% of these inflows which were made possible by the Spot Bitcoin ETFs.
Ethereum (ETH) and Cardano (ADA) exhibited a bullish attitude as well. According to a recent report published by CoinShares, digital asset investment products experienced weekly inflows totaling $1.1 billion.
Furthermore, the year-to-date inflows reached $2.7 billion due to these enormous inflows at one point. As a result of this rise in investment activity, the total assets under management (AuM) have reached $59 billion, which is the highest level it has reached since the beginning of 2022.
The attention continued to be on the recently launched Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the United States, which brought in a remarkable net inflow of $1.1 billion in only the past week alone.
There is tremendous investor interest in Bitcoin exposure within the existing financial infrastructure, as evidenced by the fact that these exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have accumulated inflows totaling $2.8 billion since their first day of operation on January 11th.
Bitcoin continues to be the most influential commodity in terms of drawing investor capital, accounting for roughly 98 percent of the total inflows. The pace appears to have significantly slowed down, according to the research, even though there are concerns about the possibility of outflows from existing investment products.
On the other hand, the scheduled sale of Genesis Holdings estimated to be worth $1.6 billion, has the potential to cause more outflows in the not-too-distant future.
Although outflows from other regions have slowed down, there were still some minor outflows reported from Canada and Germany, which amounted to $17 million and $10 million, respectively.
Switzerland, on the other hand, had a total of $35 million enter the country over the previous week, demonstrating the widespread interest in digital asset investment products. The euphoric feeling surrounding the price rise of Bitcoin has also spread to other prominent cryptocurrencies, most notably Ethereum and Cardano.
An increasing number of investors are showing faith in alternative assets, as evidenced by the fact that Ethereum saw inflows of sixteen million dollars and Cardano received 6 million dollars.
Furthermore, it was seen that other cryptocurrencies such as Avalanche (AVAX), with a total of $0.5 million and Polygon (MATIC) with a total of $0.4 million saw a few tiny inflows. Additionally, Tron (TRX) was responsible for $0.4 million in inflows.
On the other hand, Uniswap and Short-Bitcoin experienced relatively tiny outflows with a total of $0.5 million and $0.4 million associated with them respectively. While blockchain equities experienced withdrawals from one issuer equal to $67 million other issuers saw inflows totaling $19 million.
This shows a mixed feeling within the blockchain equity market, with certain issuers generating investor interest while others in the market are experiencing divestment transactions.
