Crypto funds attracted over $1.1 billion in fresh investments last week, pushing year-to-date inflows to $2.7 billion, according to the latest report from CoinShares. Total assets under management (AuM) also recovered to $59 billion, the highest level since early 2022.

Key Details:

  • US spot bitcoin ETFs drive momentum with $1.1 billion in weekly inflows.
  • Total inflows so far have hit $2.7 billion.
  • Bitcoin dominates flows, capturing 98% share.
  • Total AuM climbs back to $59 billion.

The main driver behind these inflows has been the newly issued spot-based Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the United States. These Bitcoin ETFs saw net inflows of $1.1 billion last week alone, bringing total inflows since their January 11th launch to $2.8 billion.

Outside of the US, outflows from other regions have also cooled off. Canada and Germany saw minor outflows of $17 million and $10 million, respectively. Switzerland, on the other hand, experienced $35 million of inflows last week, providing a bright spot amongst global investment products.

Bitcoin dominates 98% of inflows

Nearly 98% of total inflows went to Bitcoin, while price appreciation also boosted sentiment for other major cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Cardano. Ethereum investment products took in $16 million in fresh inflows, while Cardano captured $6 million.

Other altcoins that saw minor inflows include Avalanche ($500,000), Polygon ($400,000), and Tron ($400,000). On the flip side, investment products for Uniswap and short-Bitcoin saw negligible outflows of $500,000 and $400,000.

While blockchain equities experienced overall outflows, these came from just one issuer to the tune of $67 million. All other issuers in this segment recorded $19 million in inflows.

With AuM recovering to levels not seen since early 2022, risks remain on the horizon, like the potential sale of billions in Genesis holdings that could prompt further volatility.
