What’s new? Investors withdrew $942 million from cryptocurrencies between March 18 and March 22, marking the highest weekly outflow on record and breaking a 7-week streak of inflows totaling $12,3 billion, according to investment firm CoinShares. The recent price correction has reduced the total assets under management (AuM) of crypto investment firms by $10 billion, with the figure remaining above the previous cycle’s highs of $88 billion.

What else is known? Cryptocurrency-based exchange-traded products (ETPs) trading volume fell by 33% from the previous week to $28 billion. CoinShares believes that the indecision of investors is explained by the correction of the crypto market.

Thus, the new US spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) based on bitcoin received only $1,1 billion, while the GBTC fund from Grayscale, which previously functioned as a trust without the possibility of redemption of shares, faced an outflow of $ 2 billion for the week.

Negative sentiment is not just in the US: Sweden, Hong Kong, Switzerland, and Germany saw outflows of $37 million, $35 million, $25 million, and $4 million, respectively. At the same time, Brazil and Canada saw inflows of $9 million and $8,4 million.

Bitcoin-based products ($904 million) accounted for 96% of the total weekly outflows. At the same time, $3,7 million was withdrawn from short positions in the asset.

In the rest of the altcoin space, the situation is different for the better, with net inflows totaling $16 million. The most notable were Polkadot ($5 million), Avalanche ($2,9 million), and Litecoin ($2 million).
