Digital Asset Funds, Especially Ethereum, Post Largest Inflow Since February
Inflows to digital asset investment products rose to $489 million last week. That’s a roughly $487 million increase from the prior week and marks the largest inflows since February 2021.
Ethereum (ETH) products attracted $30 million of inflows during the seven days through April 30, bringing the total assets under management to a record $13.9 billion, according to a new report by CoinShares published on Tuesday.
- “The high inflows concealed varied flows amongst providers, with many seeing outflows in Europe while their North American peers saw strong inflows,” wrote CoinShares.
- “The greatest inflows were into bitcoin (BTC) with $442 million. Ripple, Polkadot, Binance and Cardano products all saw minor inflows while multi-asset investment products saw inflows of $9.2 million last week.”
- Bitcoin Cash (BCH) saw outflows of $1.7 million last week, representing 10% of total assets under management.
- Regarding the variation in digital asset inflows, CoinShares stated “we believe some investors are beginning to take more opportunistic positions after having range traded since February, while others have capitulated and taken profits.”
