Bitcoin dominates the market as crypto assets surge with record $2.9B inflows

The latest CoinShares Report highlights a record breaking week, with $2.9B of inflows to digital assets. This places Bitcoin at the top of the market.

According to CoinShares Research Blog Volume 174: Digital Asset Funds Weekly Report, the digital asset market experienced a historic week. The investment products in this industry saw weekly inflows in excess of US$2.9 Billion, surpassing their previous record of US$2.7 Billion. This surge has pushed the year-to date inflows to US$13.2 Billion, surpassing the US$10.6 Billion inflows in 2021.

The report shows that Bitcoin is still the leader of the crypto-market, with an inflow of US$2,86 billion just last week. This represents 97% of the total inflows so far this year. Bitcoin's performance is notable because it comes at a moment when smart contracting platforms such as Ethereum, Solana and Polygon have seen outflows of US$14,000,000, US$2.7,000,000, and US$6.8,000,000 respectively. This could indicate a shift in investor sentiment, or a strategic rebalancing digital asset portfolios.

Blockchain equities recovered from a six week run of losses, and secured US$19 millions in new inflows. This change suggests that investors are now more interested in companies directly exposed to blockchain technology, and its many applications.

The United States has the largest regional inflows, totaling US$2,95 billion. Australia, Brazil and Hong Kong experienced minor inflows as well, while Canada Germany Sweden and Switzerland combined saw outflows of US$78 millions. This distribution of digital assets by region highlights the diversity and dynamic nature in global interest.

The growth of global Exchange-Traded Products, which reached the US$100-billion mark for the very first time, was another significant milestone. This number was reduced to US$97.6 billion at the end of the week due to a price drop. However, it still represents a significant point in the evolution of digital assets.

The findings of the report highlight the rapid growth in investor interest for digital assets, with Bitcoin at its center. The continued influx of money into Bitcoin and other digital assets reflects the growing appreciation of their potential to be both a hedge against rising inflation and as a speculative asset.
