Ethereum AUM Nearly Halved In June
According to a report published recently by crypto analytics firm CryptoCompare, Ethereum’s assets under management (AUM) fell 46.7% in June to $4.54 billion.
By comparison, Bitcoin’s AUM has dropped by about 33.6% over the same time period.
Ethereum recently recorded its worst quarter ever, plummeting 67% since April. On June 18, the price of the second largest cryptocurrency dropped to as low as $881. Meanwhile, Bitcoin recorded its worst quarter since 2011, with its value dropping more than 68%.
Grayscale, the world’s largest crypto asset manager, accounts for over 77% of all AUMs.
Overall, the weekly net cash flow recorded a new record high average of $188 million, which shows that institutional investors have been fed up with the cryptocurrency due to the rapidly falling price.
The ETF-linked AUM fell more than 52% last month due to worsening market conditions. Meanwhile, Bitcoin short products benefited from the crypto carnage, averaging $33.2 million more per week.
Trading volume on crypto investment products fell 7.16% last month. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), as expected, is the most traded fund, recording an average daily volume of $125 million. In fact, GBTC’s trading activity has grown by more than 18% in the last month. On the other hand, Grayscale’s Ethereum trust recorded a 25% drop in trading volume, failing to keep up with the trend.
While the overall drop was relatively modest, digital investment products still recorded their lowest trading volume since November 2020.
