This is highly unusual as it has occurred against the backdrop of overall negative sentiment in the market and a sharp drop in digital asset prices in recent weeks. The reasons could be due to various factors such as regulatory issues, environmental concerns caused by energy-intensive mining activities, etc.

Despite the negative trend, some altcoins continue to attract investment. For example, the Solana fund saw inflows of $3.4 million, while other altcoin funds remained unchanged.

The report is significant because it shows that investors are starting to change their strategies as market conditions change. In addition, interest in digital assets remains strong, but investors have become more selective and cautious about investing.

As the cryptocurrency market continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how investors adapt and whether the trend of withdrawals from Bitcoin and Ethereum funds and flows into altcoin funds continues. .
