XRP investment products saw a jump in weekly cryptocurrency inflows according to the latest report published by CoinShares. The asset manager also highlighted the growing popularity of Cardano and Polkadot.

The world’s second-largest digital currency Ethereum accounted for nearly 27% of all digital asset inflows last week. ETH-related investment products saw inflows worth $47 million during the last 7 days.
“Digital asset price weakness prompted investors to add positions with net inflows into investment products of US$74 million last week. This follows record outflows for the previous two weeks totaling US$151 million, representing 0.34% of assets under management. Investment product flows indicate that altcoins remain popular, with inflows into all altcoin investment products. The data suggests proof-of-stake coins remain the most popular with inflows into Cardano, Polkadot and XRP of US$5.2 million, US$3.8 million and US$4.5 million respectively,” CoinShares mentioned in the report.
Apart from the latest surge in popularity of XRP, Cardano, and Ethereum investment products, weekly outflows remained focus on Bitcoin-related investment products. BTC products saw outflows worth $4 million last week.
In addition to the recent spike in XRP-related weekly institutional inflows, XRP Ledger (XRPL) is getting popular among organizations around the world for cross-border payments. In May 2021, Ripple released a report on XRP and highlighted a jump in the adoption of XRPL. Ripple is also planning to support NFTs on XRPL.
