Last week, the crypto inflows took a massive hit. This was primarily thanks to the most recent market crash, or “Healthy Correction” that’s been happening for the past week. Even with this general trend of inflows taking a hit, it seems Polkadot didn’t catch that memo. In fact, the firm reported a new surge in weekly inflows to various crypto-related investment products.
Polkadot Rising In Inflows As Others Are Failing
Other firms, such as CoinShares, weren’t so lucky. The firm reported a weekly inflow decline by the tune of close to 30%. In particular, the firm saw $395 million in inflows last week, with $491 million in inflows reported just prior to that.
Polkadot, however, failed to notice that it should be decreasing in inflows. Instead, it reported around $7 million in inflows last week. As for Ethereum, it saw weekly inflows of just shy of $91 million in that same time frame. While it is clear that institutional investors aren’t that keen on things anymore thanks to the worsening marketing conditions, it hasn’t been shown, at least not yet, in terms of major outflows.
Crypto Besides BTC Seeing Larger Interest
The report even highlighted Bitcoin. It revealed that Bitcoin’s inflows were set at $288 million, but that wasn’t much of a change when you factor in the rapidly-changing market cap for the asset itself. Ethereum and Polkadot both, the report noted, saw an increase in weekly inflows even with this new market cap madness.
The report revealed that not even Binance was safe from this decrease of weekly inflows, the firm reporting that it had $3.7 million in inflows. An interesting little tidbit is that the investors were steadily increasing their caution as this week went on. This can be seen from the daily inflows of cryptocurrencies, which started at $100 million, but $12 million was reported just this Friday.
Validation Brought THrough Usage
Thanks to everything within the cryptocurrency space suddenly finding itself with greater value, investors are starting to look in on various other forms of cryptocurrencies outside of Bitcoin. An array of new cryptocurrencies received institutional attention, such as Ethereum and Polkadot. All of these assets institutional players “recognized” as trustworthy sources of income, and their inflows saw an increasing rise in them alongside a healthy level of institutional validation.
Make no mistake, Bitcoin still stands as the largest cryptocurrency out of the entire lot, but investors starting to take notice of others, as well. Throitcoin has the lion’s share of the prize, Polkadot, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Binance Coin have all see their fair shares of institutional investment, as well.
