Amid investor sentiment signaling ‘greed,’ cryptocurrency investment products saw weekly inflows of $117 million last week — the highest since July 2022, according to a CoinShares report. Investors are almost solely focusing on Bitcoin, which saw inflows of $116 million.
Total assets under management (AuM) of investment products increased 43% from November lows to $28 billion. The trading volume of investment products also improved to $1.3 billion in the week of Jan. 23 — up 17% compared to the year-to-date average. Comparatively, the average weekly volumes in the larger crypto market jumped by 11%.
Germany accounted for 40% of all inflows last week at $46 million. Canada, the U.S., and Switzerland saw inflows of $30 million, $26 million, and $23 million respectively.
Multi-asset investment products kept losing money for the ninth consecutive week. Last week, outflows totaled $6.4 million, although CoinShares noted that investors are selectively quitting certain investments. This is because while Solana, Cardano, and Polygon saw inflows, Bitcoin Cash, Stellar, and Uniswap experienced minor outflows.
