Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s investment products dominate the market regarding inflows with a weekly average of $63.4 million. However, Ethereum’s investment products recorded a weekly outflow of $23.2 million.
JPMorgan Chooses Crypto As Alternative Assets
The Cryptocompare report came just days after JPMorgan revealed that digital assets are now the bank’s choice as alternative assets. The investment bank’s decision came after the significant sell-off in the crypto market triggered by the collapse of the Terra network.
As a result, the digital asset industry is more affected than other private equity and debt markets. Strategists at JPMorgan believe that the crypto market will rebound despite the setback. Moreover, the sell-off is a sign of the market’s potential to recover in due time.
To the investment bank’s analysts, the market price for Bitcoin considered fair enough is $38,000. This can make the leading digital asset more stable and shields it from speculative market tendencies.
This year witnessed a change of focus from investors who moved their funds away from riskier investments like cryptocurrency. The year began with the Russian military onslaught against Ukraine, a hike in interest rates, and a high inflation rate.
