The crypto market cap dropped below the $2 trillion level on Tuesday after a sharp dip in BTC and ETH. The bearish market sentiment, which started in November 2021, has wiped off almost $1 trillion worth of crypto market cap. In addition, institutional investment has followed the retail trends in the last few weeks. However, last week saw a change.

The weekly digital asset fund flows report from CoinShares highlighted a drop in institutional outflows last week. Digital asset investment products witnessed outflows worth $73 million in the last week, compared to $207 million during the first week of January 2022.

As expected, BTC investment products topped the list with weekly outflows totaling $55 million. ETH saw institutional outflows worth $30 million in the last week. In total, almost $230 million worth of investment left Ethereum-related investment products in the last 6 weeks.

“Digital asset investment products saw outflows totaling a weekly record of US$73m, the 5th week of outflows with this run now totaling US$532m. This marks the sharpest outflows since 2018 when viewed proportionally as a percentage of total assets under management (AuM). However, on a daily basis, for the first time this year we saw inflows on Wednesday and Friday, suggesting the bearish sentiment is beginning to abate after recent positive price moves,” the report noted.

Solana

While major crypto-assets like BTC and ETH experienced selling pressure and significant outflows, the digital asset, Solana (SOL) saw inflows worth $5.4 million last week, which is the highest among all other digital currencies.

“Solana remains an investor favorite with inflows totaling US$5.4m last week and has only seen two individual weeks of outflows since August 2021. Blockchain equity investment products saw minor inflows last week of US$0.4m, seeing a mixture of flows amongst providers,” CoinShares added in the weekly report.
