Panic Sell or Buy the Dip? CoinShares Says Institutions ‘Extremely Polarized’ Over Crypto Market Correction

Leading digital asset manager CoinShares says that institutional investors are in disagreement over the latest crypto correction.

According to CoinShares, crypto investment products saw nearly $88 million worth of inflows last week. However, the numbers may not tell the full story as some investment providers saw more than 10% of their total assets under management (AuM) lost to outflows.

“Some providers saw outflows representing as much as 11% of assets under management (AuM) while others saw inflows representing 14% of AuM.

[These inflows and outflows suggest] extremely polarized opinion amongst investors, with some panic selling during this most recent price decline, while others seeing it as a buying opportunity.”

CoinShares says an example of such polarized opinions can be seen in the inflows and outflows of the two largest crypto assets by market cap, Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

“All the panic selling was focused on Bitcoin last week, 

Despite this, on an aggregate basis, Bitcoin saw inflows totaling US$51m. 

Despite this, trading volumes across [BTC] investment products fell by 13% to US$3.1bn for the week.

Ethereum saw minor outflows totaling US$17m last week, the first time following six weeks of inflows, although it reflects only 0.09% of AuM and is therefore likely not meaningful.”

Despite last week’s crypto polarity, two smart contract platform altcoins, which CoinShares refers to as “world computer” coins, bucked the trend to earn major weekly inflows. The same is true for multi-asset crypto investment products.

“Solana, Tron and Multi-asset investment products bucked the trend with inflows totaling US$19m, US$17m and US$15m, respectively. 

The recent price appreciation of Tron, a “world computer” coin, has pushed its total AuM to above that of Cardano.”

At time of writing, Solana (SOL), Tron (TRX) and Cardano (ADA) are trading at $158.90, $0.087 and $1.26, respectively.
