Inflows of $0.6 million were seen into multi-digital asset investment products; however, this was much smaller than previous weeks suggesting investors were less interested in diversification.
When it comes to digital asset managers, the largest one in the world, Grayscale still hasn't seen any while its AUM is currently at just above $30 billion. Meanwhile, the second-largest CoinShares had net outflows with its AUM now at almost $3.3 billion, with 3iQ also recording net outflows.
