Funds invested in digital asset investment products, including exchange-traded products (ETP), have exceeded the $1 billion mark in 2023, with the week ending November 10 witnessing an inflow of approximately $293 million into ETPs. Notably, trading volumes of Bitcoin ETPs during this period accounted for nearly 20% of the total bitcoin trading volumes on recognized exchanges.
Record-Breaking Inflows into Digital Asset Investment Products
The recent surge in inflows into digital asset investment products has been remarkable. According to the latest findings from Coinshares, the week ending November 10 saw inflows of $293 million, marking it as the second largest weekly inflow of the year. This significant influx has propelled the total value of funds entering digital asset investment products in 2023 to over $1 billion, a first for the year.
The Coinshares report states: “Inflows into digital asset investment products reached US$293m in the last week, pushing the seven-week cumulative inflows beyond US$1bn. The year-to-date inflows now stand at US$1.14bn, positioning 2023 as the year with the third highest inflows on record.” Concurrently, the total assets under management (AUM) witnessed a rise of approximately 9.6%, culminating in a 99% increase since the start of the year.
This growth in AUM is partly attributed to the recent surge in the crypto market, which has seen significant price increases in digital assets such as Solana (SOL), ETH, and Bitcoin. The report highlights that the AUM, at $44.3 billion in week 45, is at its highest since May 2022, following the collapse of key crypto entities.
Rising Interest in Digital Asset Investment Products
The report sheds light on a notable trend in the digital asset investment sector. During the reviewed week, Bitcoin ETP trading volumes represented nearly one-fifth of the total Bitcoin trading volumes on established exchanges. This trend suggests an increasing interest among investors in digital asset investment products.
The report adds, “This level of participation in ETPs is rarely seen and indicates that investors are more actively engaged in this rally compared to previous years, specifically 2020 and 2021.”
In the case of ETH, which recently saw its price soar past $2,100, Coinshares data suggests significant inflows, the largest since August 2022. At that time, investments in this particular digital asset had reached $49 million.
