Cryptocurrencies post net inflows last week, but outflows seen on Friday: CoinShares

New York: Cryptocurrency products and funds received $184 million in net inflows as of last week, data from digital asset manager CoinShares showed on Monday.

Friday's price weakness, however, did lead to $40 million outflows that day, CoinShares said. For the year, total inflows amounted $9.1 billion, slightly below the record peak of $9.5 two weeks ago.

Bitcoin, meanwhile, attracted $145 million net, its 12th straight week of inflows. It did see outflows of $42 million on Friday, as it bore the brunt of investor jitters amid sharp price declines.

Traders said the weekend fall in prices was connected to a broad move away from riskier assets in traditional markets on worries about the Omicron coronavirus variant.

As prices fell, investors who had bought bitcoin on margin saw exchanges close their positions, causing a cascade of selling. A range of retail-focused exchanges closed more than $2 billion of long bitcoin positions on Saturday, according to Coinglass.

"The crypto markets have become very volatile. The Omicron variant and pressure on the TradFi (traditional finance) markets also seem to affect bitcoin," said Ruud Feltkamp, chief executive officer at automated trading bot Cryptohopper.

Bitcoin was last down 0.8% at $49,093. Since a record peak of $69,000 hit on Nov. 19, bitcoin has plunged 32%.

CoinShares also noted that bitcoin volume rose to $15 billion last Friday, higher than the typical $8 billion per day average for November and December.
