What else does the report say? Bitcoin-based investment products faced the biggest outflow: $154 million, compared to $298,6 million invested in them last week. Year-to-date and month-to-month flows remain positive at $307 million and $187 million respectively.

Multicurrency investment products remain the leaders in terms of inflows with $9,7 million last week. The inflow of funds for 2021 amounted to 5,3% ($185 million) of AUM. In 2022, only two weeks of outflows from these investment products were seen, significantly less than other similar products.

A minor inflow was seen across a wide range of altcoins, with Cardano and Polkadot being the most notable at $1 million each.

Digital asset-based investment products showed an outflow of $20 million, which coincided with a large equity sale.

What events happened before? According to CoinShares, investors invested $274 million in cryptocurrency funds between May 9 and 15. This is a record indicator of the inflow of funds since the start of the year.

In early May, bitcoin funds faced their biggest weekly capital outflow since June 2021. The outflow amounted to $133 million, the last seen after China banned mining and Tesla refused to accept BTC.
