The firm noted that there were regional differences in the week's data, with $5.5 million of outflows in the Americas and $80.7 million of inflows into European investment products.
The price of ether (ETH), Ethereum blockchain’s native cryptocurrency, went down 5.9% in the past week while trading around $3,000 – after gaining 16% the week before.
Bitcoin funds saw inflows of $25 million last week, a slower pace of growth compared with the $71 million of inflows the week before.
