This is the fourth week in a row that cryptocurrency exchange-traded products (ETPs) have seen inflows. The year-to-date inflows have surpassed $5.7 billion, according to CoinShares’ “Digital Asset Fund Flows Weekly” report, which was released on February 26. Institutional investors are growing their exposure to Bitcoin through the spot Bitcoin ETFs.

Before outflows temporarily halted toward the end of last week, institutions placed close to $598 million into cryptocurrency products offered by BlackRock, ARK Invest, Grayscale, Bitwise, ProShares, Fidelity, and 21Shares between February 19 and February 23.

EtheETH) ranked second with inflows of $16.8 million. XRP ETPs from Ripple and Litecoin (LTC) saw inflows of $1.1 million and $1 million, respectively. Contrary to the general trend, Solana (SOL) reported $3 million in withdrawals because of “recent outages,” which might have “impacted sentiment” about the layer 1 token, according to CoinShares. CoinShares said that significant inflows were seen into the US’s higher-cost spot issuers, especially into the recently established spot Bitcoin ETF issuers, coinciding with the rise in inflows into digital asset investment products last week.
