Such impressive investment levels came into effect somewhere in December, seeing $184 million worth of inflows. Geographically speaking, the majority (76%) of inflows came from Europe at $147 million. While the Americas “lagged at $45 million, with some providers continuing to see minor outflows,” the report noted.

The study added:

“Investors focused on Bitcoin which saw inflows totaling US$98m last week, bringing year-to-date inflows to US$162m.”

Ethereum, the 2nd largest cryptocurrency saw a decent rise as it recorded $10.2 million in investor inflows last week. However, smart contract platform dubbed ‘Ethereum-killer’ Solana (SOL) far outperformed ETH. Solana saw the most significant single week of inflows on record totaling $87 million, representing 36% of AuM.

“Solana saw the largest single week of inflows on record totaling US$87m, representing 36% of AuM [assets under management]. AuM now sits at US$241m, making it the 5th largest investment product and the largest single altcoin other than Ethereum.”

In the previous report on March 23, SOL registered negligible net flows (around $0.7m) as compared to other tokens. Ergo, SOL recovered from its battle scars in the previous week.
