Crypto Investment Products See Record Inflows

These ETFs have quickly gained traction, attracting massive amounts in net flows. CoinShares’ Head of Research, James Butterfill, highlighted the significance of these inflows, noting that they account for 55% of the record inflows witnessed throughout 2021.
