Investor appetite for cryptocurrency funds continues to strengthen, with digital asset investment products recording net inflows for the sixth consecutive week. According to the latest report from CoinShares, crypto funds added $261 million last week, surpassing the $736 million in inflows seen across all of 2022.
The inflow streak now matches a six-week run seen in July, representing the longest period of inflows since the crypto bull market ended in late 2021.
Bitcoin products lead the way in inflows
Bitcoin products led the way, capturing $229 million of the total inflows and bringing year-to-date inflows for Bitcoin funds to $842 million.
Analysts at CoinShares believe the surge is likely fueled by the growing prospects of a spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) in the US, as well as weaker economic data that raises questions about current monetary policy.
However, some investors remain dubious, as short Bitcoin products saw minor inflows of $4.5 million.
Ethereum funds saw their largest inflows since August 2022, totaling $17.5 million a significant turnaround from the $107 million in outflows earlier this year. Solana, Chainlink, Polygon, and Cardano products also saw minor to moderate inflows.
The inflows were driven largely by US investors, who contributed $157 million. Germany, Switzerland, and Canada maintained steady participation as well.
While the appetite for crypto funds is mounting, prices remain highly volatile, and sustaining the inflow momentum is far from guaranteed. But the data suggests cryptocurrencies are gaining appeal among investors.
