Bitcoin BTC/USD funds saw more than $450 million in outflows last week as digital asset investment products saw the largest ever weekly outflows on record.
What Happened: According to data from CoinShares, the outflows were solely focused on Bitcoin which recorded $453 million worth of outflows.
“The outflows occurred on 17th June but were reflected in last week’s figures due to trade reporting lags, and likely responsible for Bitcoin’s decline to $17,760 that weekend,” stated CoinShares in its weekly report examining fund flows.
Meanwhile, short-Bitcoin funds recorded $15 million worth of inflows after the launch of the ProShares Short Bitcoin Strategy ETF BITI last week, suggesting institutional investors were betting on further downside for the leading digital asset.
