CoinShares Volume 151: Digital Asset Fund Flows Weekly Report

Validated Individual Expert

Recent US Government Quagmire and Treasure prices fuel inflows of US$21m

CoinShares
  • Digital asset investment products saw inflows last week for the first time in 6 weeks totalling US$21m.
  • We believe the inflows are a reaction to a combination of positive price momentum, fears over US government debt prices and the recent quagmire over government funding.
  • Solana continues to shine, with inflows of US$5m, marking its 27th week of inflows and just 4 weeks of outflows this year.

Digital asset investment products saw inflows last week for the first time in 6 weeks totalling US$21m. Earlier in the week it looked as if it would be another week of outflows, with the inflows coming late in the week (Friday) in what we believe is a reaction to a combination of positive price momentum, fears over US government debt prices and the recent quagmire over government funding. Despite this most recent price pick up, volumes remain seasonally low in both the investment product market and the broader crypto market.

The recent regional divergence persists, with the US seeing outflows totalling US$19m last week, while Europe and Canada saw inflows of US$23m and US$17m respectively.

Bitcoin inflows totalled US$20m last week, seeing the majority of inflows, while outflows continue in short-bitcoin which saw US$1.5m last week, bringing outflows since April to US$85m.

Very little activity was seen in the altcoin space, Solana continues to shine, with inflows of US$5m, marking its 27th week of inflows and just 4 weeks of outflows this year, highlighting it as the most loved altcoin this year. Ethereum saw outflows for a 7th consecutive week, totalling US$1.5m, marking it as the least loved altcoin.

Blockchain equities saw outflows of US$8.4m, inline with a broader sell-off in the technology sector.

  • Correction: Nigeria’s central bank says “freezing Bybit, KuCoin, OKX, Binance user accounts” is unofficial

    The official X account of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) stated that the announcement "the Central Bank of Nigeria will freeze Bybit, KuCoin, OKX, and Binance user accounts" is not an official release. Previously, according to Cointelegraph, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) issued an instruction requiring all banks and financial institutions to identify individuals or entities trading with cryptocurrency exchanges and ensure that such accounts receive no debit (PND) instructions within six months.

  • Alliance of 314: The X314 contract is suspected to have a hidden additional issuance switch, developers should pay attention to verification

    Alliance of 314 issued a statement claiming that the contract of a certain 314 project has not been open-sourced on the blockchain. As for whether other platforms have open-sourced their contracts, there is a misconception that open-sourcing on other platforms is self-submitted and does not necessarily mean that the contract is deployed on the chain, so there may be unknown hidden issuance. Additionally, the said 314 project announced that it will soon launch a trading platform, and the first requirement for logging into a centralized exchange is to open-source the contract. Open-sourcing is the first thing that any project should do to ensure investor confidence. Referring to the open-sourcing of the 0.1, 0.5, and 0.9 versions before, it can be concluded that there is hidden code in the X314 contract, and therefore it cannot be open-sourced out of fear. The biggest risk warning: after decompiling and querying ethervm, it is highly suspected that a certain 314 has a hidden issuance switch to increase mining pool output and arbitrage. The field is as follows: 0x40c10f19mint(address,uint256). The risk alert level for this switch is the highest level, and generally, ordinary developers do not set this switch.

  • Left Curve

    Some of you think you are masters of the universe right now because you bought Solana sub $10 and sold it at $200. Others did the smart thing and sold fiat for crypto during the 2021 to 2023 bear market but lightened up as prices surged in the first quarter of this year. If you sold shitcoins for Bitcoin, you get a pass. Bitcoin is the hardest money ever created. If you sold shitcoins for fiat that you don’t immediately need for living expenses, you are fucking up. Fiat will continue to be printed ad infinitum until the system resets.

The Department of Justice argued that this sentence would hold him accountable for his intentional criminal conduct and send a message to the world. Zhao made a "business decision" to break the law to attract users, build his company, and line his pockets, according to prosecutors. Along with the prison sentence, DOJ lawyers also requested that Zhao pay the $50 million fine he agreed to as part of a plea deal.
