Inflows into exchange-traded investment products (ETPs) totaled $708 million last week, according to asset management firm CoinShares’ weekly report.
Average inflows into U.S.-approved Bitcoin spot ETFs over the past four weeks reached $1.9 billion, bringing total inflows since launch to $7.7 billion.
This has been partially offset by outflows from existing issuers, led by Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), but the momentum of outflows appears to have slowed significantly over the past few weeks.
altcoin market price
Flare Network (FLR) is soaring 30.5% from the previous week and 69.2% from the previous month.
On January 15th, Google Cloud entered into a partnership with Flare, which was seen as an opportunity.
FLR is an L1 chain designed in 2020 to expand the functionality of XRP and focuses on interoperability.
The token was airdropped to some XRP holders in the early stages with support from Ripple, Inc., and snapshots of domestic crypto asset (virtual currency) exchanges such as bitbank were also subject to vesting dates. For some reason, it appears that there were a considerable number of Japanese holders at the time.

What is behind this is the decline in expectations for FTX’s recovery. FTX, which is currently filing for bankruptcy, initially had the option of restructuring its business, but at a hearing held in a court in Delaware late last month, FTX’s lawyer revealed that the company was abandoning the idea of reopening the exchange. There were no investors willing to invest in the company, and the value of the businesses it had acquired in the past were said to be at a low point.
The process of repaying debts to customers (creditors) will continue and it is expected that full compensation will be achieved.
