Digital Assets See $64M In Inflows

July 05, 2022

  • Digital asset investment products saw inflows totalling US$64m last week, although the headline figures obscure the fact that a significant majority were into short-bitcoin investment products (US$51m).
  • Small inflows were seen into long investment products in regions other than the US such as Brazil, Canada, Germany and Switzerland totalling US$20m.
  • This highlights investors are adding to long positions at current prices, with the inflows into short-Bitcoin possibly due to first-time accessibility in the US rather than renewed negative sentiment.

 

 

Digital asset investment products saw inflows totalling US$64m last week, although the headline figures obscure the fact that a significant majority were into short-bitcoin investment products.

Small inflows were seen into long investment products in regions other than the US such as Brazil, Canada, Germany and Switzerland totalling US$20m. This highlights investors are adding to long positions at current prices, with the inflows into short-Bitcoin possibly due to first-time accessibility in the US rather than renewed negative sentiment.

Bitcoin saw little inflows over the week, totalling just US$0.6m. Short-Bitcoin saw record inflows totalling US$51m after the product launch in the US.

Ethereum saw a second week of inflows totalling US$5m last week, breaking the 11-week spell of outflows.

Multi-asset (multi-crypto) investment products saw inflows totalling US$4.4m and remain the least affected by recent negative sentiment with minor outflows in only 2 weeks of this year.

A range of altcoins saw inflows suggesting investors are beginning to diversify again. Notably Solana, Polkadot and Cardano totalling US$1m, US$0.7m and US$0.6m respectively.
