However, digital asset management firm CoinShares They say Despite reaching a new year-to-date high, the flagship cryptocurrency still bore the brunt of the negative sentiment that pierced the market as US regulators stepped up their crackdown on several industry sectors.

Digital assets see $32 million outflow

As James Butterfill, head of research at CoinShares, explains in the weekly Money Flow reports Issued on Monday, bitcoin recorded the largest share of outflows seen in digital asset investment products in the past week.

The market registered significant outflows as bitcoin led the market in holding the price above key levels.

According to Butterfill, the mid-week volatility (with bitcoin rising more than 10%) helped digital asset products register inflows of $30 million. This in turn helped push total assets under management in exchange-traded products (ETPs) to their highest level since last August. Butterfill noted:

,Negative sentiment among ETP investors was not expressed in the broader market, with bitcoin prices rising 10% during the week, this price appreciation pushed total assets under management (AuM) to US$30bn, which This is their highest level since August 2022. We believe in this. ETP investors are less optimistic on recent regulatory pressures in the US relative to the broader market,
