Investors pumped money into cryptocurrency funds last week as digital-asset markets pulled back from recent highs.

Overall, crypto funds brought in $57 million in new money in the seven days through Friday, the fourth straight week of inflows, according to a report Monday by the digital-asset manager CoinShares.

Almost $50 million went into Solana-focused funds, according to the report, while a “paltry” $200,000 went into bitcoin funds. Ethereum funds saw minor outflows totaling $6.3 million.

“The trend of diversification remains intact among investors,” CoinShares said.

Funds focused on Cardano’s ADA token netted inflows of $3.5 million, while XRP funds brought in $3.1 million and Polkadot funds got $1.7 million of new investments.

Multi-asset crypto funds brought in $3.2 million.
