CoinShares Report on Digital Asset Fund Flows
Digital asset manager CoinShares recently released its Digital Asset Fund Flows Weekly Report. The report found that digital assets took in $29 million last week, ending a three-week run of outflows. According to the report, this improvement in sentiment is due to the recent US inflation data being slightly below expectations. This suggests that a September rate hike is less likely.
Bitcoin Dominates Inflows
The majority of these inflows were driven by Bitcoin (BTC), which took in $27 million. This brings BTC’s year-to-date inflows to $456 million. Interestingly, short-bitcoin saw outflows totaling $2.7 million which suggests that sentiment for Bitcoin and the broader crypto market remains supportive despite seasonally low volumes.
