Institutions Load Up On $24M Of ETH, ADA, SOL As BTC Records 8 Consecutive Weeks Of Outflows

What Happened: Market-leading altcoins amassed significant gains from institutional funds over the past seven days as Bitcoin BTC/USD continued to record outflows for an eighth consecutive week.

According to the latest CoinShares report examining weekly digital asset flows, Cardano ADA/USD reported $10.1 million in inflows this week – its largest on record.

ADA, now the third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has consistently seen massive inflows over the past few weeks. The token’s price has rallied by over 100% over the past month, driven by momentum surrounding its upcoming Alonzo hard fork that will bring smart contract functionality to the blockchain.

Last week, SOL saw $7.1 million in inflows from institutions. Since the end of last week, the token’s price has already appreciated over 50%. This week, SOL saw $2.7 million in inflows, and market sentiment surrounding the coin remained high.

Institutional sentiment towards the leading altcoin Ethereum ETH/USD, too, appears to have picked up. ETH saw an influx of $17.2 million this week, after months of recording moderate inflows, and now represents 32% of total digital asset AUM.
