For instance, Avalanche raked in $25M inflows over the past week, while multi-asset and Solana investments brought in $9.4M and $1.2M each. Likewise, blockchain equities were still on the rise, bringing in $26 million in investments.
However, Bitcoin took the top spot, bringing in $88.5M investments amidst conflicts happening in Eastern Europe, and the price becoming quite fragile, crashing 13.53% over the past week, currently sitting at an average price of $38,116.75.
Likewise, inflows from institutional providers reached a total of $109.3M investments, with Purpose taking the top spot by reaching $63.2M, while other providers like ProShare brought in $26.6M inflows.
While Bitcoin managed to keep up its popularity, according to CoinShares, its inflows "remain tepid, with the last 5 weeks of inflows totalling US$221m, representing 0.7% of total assets under management (AuM)."
