Cryptocurrency investment products and funds saw record inflows from investors last week, according to the latest CoinShares data.
During the tenth straight week of crypto inflows last week, digital asset investment products saw inflows amounting to $1.47 billion, a new record by a significant margin. According to the weekly report from CoinShares, this is more than double the previous record of $640 million set earlier this year in February. Over the course of the week, total assets under management peaked at a new record of $79.2 billion, but finished the week at $76.7 billion. Year-to-date inflows now amount to $8 billion, far exceeding that of $6.7 billion in 2020.
The majority of inflows went to Bitcoin, amounting to $1.45 billion, while Ethereum saw outflows for a third consecutive week totaling $1.4 million. Altcoins Solana, Cardano and Binance also saw significant inflows at $8.1 million, $5.3 million and $1.8 million respectively.
Boosted by Bitcoin ETF approval
CoinShares attributes the outsized demand to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approving the first Bitcoin-based exchange traded funds (ETFs). This enabled the listing of two such Bitcoin investment products, whose inflows totaled $1.24 billion. This also contributed to Bitcoin achieving a new all-time high of over $67,000 last week.
“Bitcoin hitting new all-time highs shows both how far we’ve come and the capacity bitcoin has to upend the financial system and create a global economy, linking the developed and emerging markets like never before,” said co-founder and CEO of Paxful Ray Youssef. “While this recent price rally can be attributed to movements like the approval of the first bitcoin ETF for institutional investors, we can’t ignore the impact of significant development and adoption in emerging markets.”
After its debut, the ProShares Bitcoin-futures-based ETF became the second-highest traded fund in history, attracting a staggering 24 million shares. It proved so successful that it was already approaching the limit on the number of futures contracts permitted by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. However, following this act proved difficult as Valkyrie’s Bitcoin futures-based ETF opened at $25, but only fell from there.
