Why Cardano Has Seen a Surge in Investment Inflows Over Last Week ?

Cardano has fallen with the rest of the market but seems more resilient than other assets

in the crypto top 10 by market cap.

At the time of writing, ADA trades at $1.52 with a 2.8% profit in the daily chart and

a 3.9% profit in the 1-hour chart.

Over the past month, ADA also records an impressive 36.8% rally.

Bitcoins crash was triggered partially by environmental concerns.

Expressed by Teslas CEO, Elon Musk, it appears to have influenced some investors.

According to a report by CoinShares, Cardano-based investment products benefited from this narrative.

Last week, Cardano experienced its largest investment inflows with $10 million in response

to investors actively choosing proof of stake coins based on environmental considerations,

the report claims.

Other than BTC, altcoins saw positive inflows in the same period but generally, Asset Flows

have been trending negative for the past two weeks, as shown in the chart below.

Ethereum saw outflows estimated at $12.6 million after a long period with record-high inflows.

In 2021, Ethereum based investment products have seen a total of $924 million inflows,

according to CoinShares.

Cardano Outperforms Bitcoin Weekly Investment Inflows

Bitcoin was the most impacted by negative asset outflows with 110.9 million.

However, the first cryptocurrency by market cap still records $4,130 million in Year-to-Date

(YTD) positive flows

with 31,597 in assets under management (AUM).

Ripple, Polkadot, Litecoin, and Stellar also saw positive inflows, but only DOT comes close

to ADA with $5.5 million.

Cardano has the fifth position in YTD positive inflows with $24 million behind Bitcoin, Ethereum,

Polkadot ($55 million), and Ripple ($31 million).

The report claims the following:

Digital asset investment product saw net outflows for the second consecutive week totalling

US$97m, another new record for outflows.

() it represents a net change in sentiment following increasing regulatory scrutiny and

concerns over Bitcoins environmental credentials.

This suggests a rise in the persistent bearish sentiment over the crypto markets performance.

Still, CoinShares outflow represents only 0.2% of their AUM.

This sum is small when compared with the $5.5 billion received YTD.

As reported by newsBTC, Cardano was amongst the most resilient assets during last weeks


The debate over Bitcoins environmental footprint has extended to the advantages of

Proof-of-Work versus Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm.

Cardanos inventor, Charles Hoskinson, weighted in and highlighted the benefits of PoS.

Hoskinson said that this type of consensus is more energy-efficient and fits the environmental

requirements expressed by Musk and others.

In a separate statement, Hoskinson informed the community of IOGs busy schedule for

the next 3 months.

The company is preparing to implement Plutus, Cardanos smart contract platform.

Hoskinson said:

We are all gonna work together to get this done, and I hate delays.

I hate setbacks, and weve done everything in our power to try to de-risk thingsAll

that said, stuff could come up, and its important to manage expectations.
