Institutional Investors Turn Cautious As Crypto Markets See Second Straight Week of Capital Outflows: CoinShares
According to a leading crypto asset manager, institutional investments in digital asset products have been declining for the second week in a row, suggesting investors are getting cautious.
In the latest edition of the Digital Asset Fund Flows Weekly report, CoinShares finds that crypto investment products saw outflows last week totaling nearly $100 million.
“Digital asset investment products saw outflows totaling US$97m last week. The outflows represent the second week in what we believe is likely a result of recent profit-taking and a reaction to the more hawkish FOMC [Federal Open Market Committee] statement.”
CoinShares suggests that last week’s heavy outflows from Europe may be a delayed reaction to the FOMC’s statement in regards to tightening monetary policy.
Leading crypto by market cap Bitcoin (BTC) suffered the heaviest outflows last week, $73 million, to reach $196 million in outflows for April 2022.
Altcoins such as Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL) and Cardano (ADA), digital assets whose investment products usually enjoy inflows, followed Bitcoin into outflows last week. Investment products focused on multiple digital assets, or multi-coin assets, were the only products to see inflows last week.
“Ethereum, Solana and Cardano saw outflows last week too, totaling US$27m, US$0.7m and US$0.7m respectively. Multi-asset investment products (multi-coin) remain a firm stalwart with another week of inflows totaling US$5.3m.”
