- Crypto investment products saw outflows totaling $120 million, last week.
- Bitcoin-based funds top outflows, resulting in the largest single week of outflows since June 2021.
- Total outflows in this four-week run recorded $339 million.
Digital asset investment firm CoinShares has rolled out its latest weekly crypto fund flows, showing net outflows totaling $120 million, last week.
Per the report, bitcoin (BTC) funds alone saw the majority of outflows, resulting in the largest single week of outflows since last year June. BTC funds worth $132.7 million exited last week, bringing month-to-date outflows for the month of April, to $310.8 million.
Bitcoin was followed by ethereum (ETH) outflows, recording $25 million, last week, a huge margin when compared to bitcoin.
The total outflows in this four-week run hit $339 million, which, according to CoinShares, is close to the $467 million outflows witnessed at the beginning of this year.
Region-wise, the Americas comprise 41% of the outflows, whereas Europe records 59%. There is still no clear indicator for the exodus, however, CoinShares noted:
“It is difficult to ascertain the precise reason for this other than the hawkish rhetoric from the US Federal Reserve and the recent price decline.”
Multi-asset funds see inflows
“FTX Token, the utility token for the fast-growing FTX crypto exchange, bucked the negative trend with inflows totaling $38 million, last week, the largest of all crypto assets we track,” the report read.
