Acknowledging this irregularity, the CoinShares report stated that this was the “largest weekly outflows from short-bitcoin on record of US$23m.”

Other than BTC, Ethereum (ETH) also closed the week on the negative by recording $2.3 million in withdrawals. In return, multi-asset and Solana (SOL)-based products saw inflows worth $100,000 and $3.4 million, respectively, bringing the overall market score to -$53.7 million.
