Retail piles into Shiba Inu while institutions remain unfazed by market volatility



While Bitcoin and Ethereum prices successfully held their rebound from last week’s sell-off, Shiba Inu surged following Kraken listing.

Crypto investment products recorded inflows totaling $306 million last week, as Bitcoin saw the largest inflows in five weeks, the latest report from CoinShares revealed.

However, price pressures led total assets under management (AUM) to decrease from $75,4 billion to $72,8 billion, the digital asset manager reported.

According to the report, which keeps tabs on the flows into digital asset funds, last week’s volumes brought month-to-date inflows to $787 million, while year-to-date inflows reached a record $9,5 billion.

Following the launch of another investment product in Europe, Bitcoin recorded the largest inflows in five weeks totaling $247 million, according to CoinShares.

“This brings the 11 week run of inflows to US$2,7 billion,” added the report.

As far as Ethereum goes, with inflows of $23 million, the second-largest crypto by market cap recorded its fifth consecutive week of inflows last week.

Meanwhile, multi-asset investment products recorded inflows totaling $9 million and surfaced as the third largest investment product by AUM at $4,6 billion.

While Polkadot and Solana saw inflows totaling $11,5 million and $14,6 million respectively, Cardano recorded outflows of $1,1 million.

This week’s sentiment

While the two leading cryptos overcame price marks without stiff resistance, Shiba Inu surged, following today’s listing on Kraken.

The price of Shiba Inu rallied over 30% in the past 24-hour period, as the US crypto exchange announced including the meme coin on its trading platform.
