With the exception of Ripple, all major assets tracked by CoinShares recorded weekly inflows, with $85.3 million flowing into Bitcoin (BTC). Interestingly, Bitcoin investment product trade volumes moderated to $713 million per day last week, down from the $1.1 billion average so far this year.

Inflows into Ethereum (ETH) products increased by $7.8 million. Multi-asset funds generated $4.2 million.

The CoinShares report highlighted a regional divide in institutional demand, with the United States seeing a decline in appetite while Europe and Canada reporting gains. Canada has become a hotbed for Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, with the Purpose Bitcoin ETF seeing $100 million in volume shortly after launching in February. The fund is expected to surpass all other ETFs in Canada within two months.

Institutions have become a major driving force of the crypto bull market, possibly setting the stage for a more prolonged rally than the retail-driven euphoria of 2017. Bitcoin’s price topped $61,000 last week, with one prominent BTC miner forecasting a top in the range of $150,000 to $300,000.
