While cryptocurrencies have been hit hard by the Federal Reserve’s rate hikes, investors don’t seem to be getting discouraged. Digital asset management firm Coinshares said in a report released Monday that a total of $45 million flowed into related cryptocurrency funds and products last week..
“Institutional investors are paying close attention to bitcoin, and a lot of people who bought last year are now losing money on their investments,” said Edward Moya, a market analyst at currency trading platform OANDA, adding that “Bitcoin broke through key technical levels as Wall Street’s relentless selling pressure continues.”
