The majority of the losses came from the U.S., Germany, and Sweden. The countries recorded outflows of $10 million, $2.4 million, and $2.1 million, respectively. Small inflows were recorded from Brazil, with $2.5 million, and Switzerland, with $1.9 million.

Regardless of the inflows, the market fell to its second-lowest level of the year, indicating investors’ low participation level. Last week’s upwards price movement also might have kindled sales from investors looking for short-term gains.

Flows by assets

Bitcoin recorded its third consecutive outflow week, losing a total of $15 million between the 15th and 21st of August. The recorded outflows were $29 million and $21 million for the weeks of Aug. 8 to Aug. 14 and from Aug. 1 to Aug. 7, respectively. On the other hand, Short-Bitcoin recorded minor inflows of up to $0.2 million.

Flows by assets

Ethereum, on the other hand, saw a turn in the negative sentiment and recorded inflows of up to $3 million. The asset has been closing the weeks at inflows since mid-June, which could reflect the merge. The nine-week inflows equate to $162 million.

Regarding other altcoins, Cardano recorded a small inflow of $0.5 million, while Solana ended the week with a $1.4 million outflow. Blockchain equities also showed parallelism to the overall outflow of the market, losing a total of $1.6 million.

Flows by region

While the overall market recorded losses, the numbers show different flows to and from exchanges based on their regions.

European exchanges recorded significant inflows totaling $20 million. Exchanges from North and South America, on the other hand, experiences outflows equating to $36 million last week.
