Digital Asset Investment Funds Record $1.1 Billion Inflows as AUM Taps $59 Billion

Digital asset investment products recorded $1.1 billion in inflows in the last seven days following a price uptick in the market.

A new CoinShares Digital Asset Funds Flow Weekly Report shows a positive swing in cryptocurrency products for another week as crypto prices record massive weekly gains.

Inflows of US$1.1bn into digital asset ETPs, momentum of inflows into new issuers not slowinghttps://t.co/IERahbmYhO

Market gains have seen the wider market cap hit $1.8 trillion with a daily trading volume of $45.44 billion following Bitcoin (BTC) moving past $48,000 and altcoins posting good numbers.

A weekly inflow of $1.1 billion has brought total net inflows to $2.7 billion this year pushing Assets Under Management to $59 billion, its highest point since the early months of 2022.

The bull run of 2021 spurred assets to all-time highs, with BTC trading above $64,000 and high institutional interest in the market. The bull cycle waned following the collapse of Terra’s stablecoin and FTX which led to significant market setbacks.

As a result, cryptocurrencies saw massive outflows, marking a declined AUM and reduced decentralized finance (DeFi) numbers.

AUM hovered around the $52 billion mark in Q4 2023 and has surged steadily as anticipation for a spot Bitcoin ETF approval by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) grew.

Bitcoin Takes 98% of Digital Asset Inflows

As expected, Bitcoin got the majority of inflows with other digital assets notching inflows on the back of the market leader’s price uptick.

BTC investment funds account for 98% of inflows with $1 billion, as analysts predicted positive movements after a spot ETF approval.

Short Bitcoin saw $0.4 million in outflows in the last seven days with bulls increasing their positions on the asset. BTC monthly inflows now stand at $1.17 billion while yearly inflows are up $2.5 billion.

In the last seven days, the Bitcoin price rose 17.03% and 3% in the past 24 hours to trade at $49,759. The inflows into newly approved ETFs have spurred a new market drive based on their competitive costs and other factors.

“Regionally, the focus remained on the newly issued spot-based Bitcoin ETFs in the US, which saw a net US$1.1bn inflows last week, bringing inflows since the January 11th launch to US$2.8bn. The outflows from incumbents have slowed significantly, but the potential sale of the Genesis holdings of US$1.6bn could prompt further outflows in the coming months.”

Ethereum (ETH) recorded $16.5 million in inflows while Solana (SOL) and Cardano (ADA) saw inflows of $0.1 million and $6.1 million respectively.

These numbers have seen Ethereum’s yearly inflows leave the red zone with its AUM at $10 billion. Solana, which was dubbed an institutional investor favorite digital asset, notched reduced figures in the past week. SOL has recorded a 13% price growth in the last seven days and trades at $108 at press time.

While the United States recorded $1.1 billion inflows, Switzerland and Australia posted $38.9 million and $0.8 million respectively while Germany saw outflows of $10.3 million.
