- The crypto market has lost a lot of liquidity over the last ten weeks, with Bitcoin and the rest of the market losing almost $500 million.
- There has been a net outflow of $9 million from the crypto market in the past week, bringing the total to almost $464 million over the previous 10 weeks.
- Europe has shown more resistance to the crypto market’s outflows than any other region in the world, with inflows of about $16 million over the last week.

- XRP and Solana’s prices have been tracking one another since mid-July when Ripple beat the SEC in court over the issue of XRP being a security.
It is no secret that the crypto market has been through a lot over the last few months.
Bitcoin has declined severely below its $32,000 high and is now trading too close to $26,000.
Moreover, fears and uncertainty about Bitcoin’s ability to resist a drop to $22,000 remain alive. According to a recent report by CoinShares, the crypto market has lost a whole lot of liquidity over the last ten weeks, with Bitcoin and the rest of the market losing almost $500 million.
However, two cryptocurrencies have gone against the trend, and have managed to stay green over the same timeframe.
In this article, we will be going over the specifics of Coinshares’ report, and how Solana and XRP have managed to stay consistently bullish over the last 10 weeks.
$9 Million Net Outflow in the Past Week
According to Coinshares’ most recent digital asset fund flow weekly report, the crypto market had a net outflow of $9 million during the previous week, bringing the total to almost $464 million over the previous 10 weeks.
According to Coinshares, digital asset management firms including CoinShares, Grayscale, 21Shares, Bitwise, and ProShares have also been severely affected by outflows of this magnitude.
The outflows may have been $9 million this week. However, things were much worse over the last week.
Coinshares shows that the crypto market lost a whopping $54 million two weeks ago, only continued by this week’s $9 million.

In detail, Coinshares’ report shows that Europe showed more resistance to the crypto market’s outflows than any other region in the world.
Europe also saw inflows of about $16 million over the last week and the regional mood discrepancy, according to James Butterfill, Research Head at CoinShares, might be attributed to regulatory differences in separate regions.
For context, US residents withdrew an almost equivalent amount, at about $14 million worth of withdrawals.
Bitcoin Suffers While Solana and XRP Thrive
Bitcoin, the flagship cryptocurrency, has also suffered a massive withdrawal spree.
The cryptocurrency has witnessed outflows for three weeks in a row, with a nail-in-the-coffin of -$6 million this past week.
Ethereum also suffered, but not as much as Bitcoin did.
Ethereum, according to Coinshares, has lost about $2.2 million over the last week.
However, what is interesting is that XRP and Solana took the lead, instead witnessing $300,000 and $700,000 in inflows respectively, over the last week.
XRP and Solana in Price Charts
According to CoinMarketCap, XRP and Solana haven’t been consistently bullish, despite investors’ apparent interest in both
In particular, XRP is trading at $0.50, up 0.82% from the previous day. Solana, on the other hand, is down by 1% over the last day and is trading at $19.31 at the time of writing.
Interestingly, however, both cryptocurrencies show remarkable similarities in price action and have been tracking one another since mid-July, when Ripple beat the SEC in court over the issue of XRP being a security.
Solana’s price tracked that of XRP’s and increased marginally to about $28.
Ever since then, the behaviour of both cryptocurrencies has been similar, with minute differences here and there.
Is this price correlation between the two a sign of a deeper story, or is all of this some insane coincidence?
