This Ethereum Rival Is the ‘Most Loved Altcoin’ by Institutional Investors This Year, According to CoinShares



Digital assets manager CoinShares says that one top Ethereum (ETH) rival is being cherished over all other altcoins this year.

In its latest Digital Asset Fund Flows Weekly Report, CoinShares finds that while the overall digital asset markets suffered minor outflows last week, Solana (SOL) saw minor inflows for the ninth consecutive week.

“While Solana saw inflows for the 9th consecutive week totaling US$0.7m, the YTD (year-to-date) inflows of US$26m suggest it is the most loved altcoin amongst investors at present.”

Meanwhile, the overall digital assets markets saw over $11 million in outflows, according to CoinShares.

“Digital asset investment product flows cooled off, with relatively minor outflows totaling US$11.2. This run of negative sentiment over the last 7 weeks now totals US$342m. Year-to-date digital asset investment products remain in a net inflow position totaling US$165m, with the year so far beset with large gyrations of investor flows, very much driven by the hopes and concerns for regulation on digital assets.”

Bitcoin (BTC), Polygon (MATIC) and Ethereum investment products suffered $3.8 million, $8.6 million, and $3.2 million in outflows last week, respectively.

However, despite the minor outflows, CoinShares says trading volumes are up.

“Despite little activity on flows, trading volumes were much higher than average, totaling US$2.8bn for the week, 90% above the YTD average.”
