James Butterfill, Head of Research at Coinshares, highlights a significant inflow of investments in the cryptocurrency market, reversing the trend from the preceding week’s net outflows, which followed 11 consecutive weeks of inflows.

“US$103m inflows in digital assets last week, no report on Monday. Merry Christmas!,” Butterfill stated.

Crypto Market Experiences Reversal in Inflows

On December 24, in a post on X (formerly Twitter), Butterfill detailed a change in cryptocurrency market investment dynamics during the week leading up to Christmas.

This shift occurred after a previous dip, which followed a rapid streak amid hype surrounding the crypto market.

The previous week, Butterfill outlined in a report that the week saw an outflow of crypto investments, to the amount of $16 million. This ended an 11-week run of inflows.

However, he noted that trading activity remained well above the year average though, totaling $3.6 billion for the week.
