For fourth week in row, digital assets fund registers positive inflow; Bitcoin (BTC) is responsible for almost 100% of these statistics


CoinShares, a leading data provider in the Web3 segment, shares its weekly report on value flow in the sphere of cryptocurrency-based investment funds. These statistics are an interesting indicator of private investors’ sentiment in the midterm.

Bitcoin (BTC) funds attracted $104 million in last week: “Continued bullishness”

According to the Volume 127: Digital Asset Fund Flows Weekly Report shared by CoinShares head of research James Butterfill, over the past few weeks, bulls have dominated in the segment of cryptocurrency funds. The largest funds closed the week with a $114 million inflow with Bitcoin (BTC) being responsible for $104 million of this sum.

As such, Bitcoin (BTC) accounts for over 92% of net inflows to the digital assets fund. Other major cryptocurrencies available from the largest funds also printed positive inflows. Solana (SOL)-based and multi-asset funds registered outflows of liquidity, while Tron-based products remained untouched.

This is the fourth week for crypto-based funds to register positive inflows of money. During this impressive run, $345 million were invested in mentioned funds; $310 million came to Bitcoin-based products.

Butterfill stressed that this is evidence of investor optimism:

Continued bullishness in Bitcoin, with US$104m inflows last week.

As a result, this major indicator almost managed to erase losses caused by regulatory uncertainty in Q1, 2023, when it was losing steam for six consecutive weeks.

Shapella upgrade activation ignored by Ethereum (ETH) funds

Surprisingly, Ethereum-based funds registered negligible inflows of $0.3 million; investors were super cautious about the effects of the much-anticipated Shapella upgrade.

However, it was not all roses for Bitcoin (BTC); $14.6 million were invested into funds offering Bitcoin Short products designed to let their holders benefit from BTC losing its price.

Digital assets funds are regulated investment vehicles for investors interested in being exposed to cryptocurrency price dynamics but not willing to hold “physical” cryptocurrency directly.

In the last week, ProShares Bitcoin and CoinShares Physical funds were the most attractive for investors.
