Loss Of Interest In Bitcoin, Ethereum
Statistics revealed last week that institutional investors were significantly losing interest in Bitcoin and Ethereum. During last week, BTC witnessed total outflows of $57 million, while the month-to-date outflows stood at $91 million.
Likewise, Ethereum witnessed massive selling activity due to two major setbacks. While the delay of Ethereum Merge had huge impact on trading activity, the depegging of stETH from ETH worsened it. A total of $41 million was witnessed in institutional outflows, while the year-to-date outflows stood at $387 million.
So far on Monday, the huge decline in Bitcoin price had a direct impact on the overall cryptocurrency market. Also, MicroStrategy, which is the largest institutional holder of Bitcoin at 129,218 coins, extended losses to its stock price.
Data on public companies owning Bitcoin revealed massive losses incurred by top institutional investors. Central American country El Salvador is in top three among Bitcoin holding institutions, although it is not really a company.
In a shocking revelation, a staggering $1.39 billion in BTC was lost between the top three investing companies. MicroStrategy is followed by Elon Musk’s Tesla and El Salvador with each holding 129,218, 42,902, and 2,301 bitcoins respectively.
