LONDON, October 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In its global analysis of exchange-traded products (ETPs) with cryptocurrencies as underlying assets, Fineqia International Inc. (The “Company” or “Fineqia”) (CSE: FNQ) (OTC: FNQQF) (Frankfurt am Main): FNQA) recorded an 11% drop in its AUM value in August.
Total assets under management increased from $28.5 billion to $25.4 billion between August 1 and September 1. Data on 155 listed ETPs, including exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and exchange-traded notes (ETNs), was compiled by Fineqia Research.
The value of ETPs containing Bitcoin (BTC) fell from $19 billion to $16.7 billion in the same period, a 12% decrease. This decline is closely related to the 13% drop in the price of BTC, which fell to around $20,000 on September 1 from $23,000 the previous month. ETPs representing alternative cryptocurrencies or a basket of cryptocurrencies fell 12% and 13% respectively.
The fall in Ethereum-denominated (ETH) ETP was twice as large as the fall in the underlying price of ETH over this period. This is because the cryptocurrency held its price after investors showed confidence in the system change of the ETH network, which moved from proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism – a more energy-intensive approach – to proof-of-work on September 15th. Stake based mechanism (PoS). Ethereum-based ETP total assets fell 8% from $7.3 billion to $6.7 billion, while the price of ETH itself fell just 2%, or 0.6%, in August.
“Crypto markets are sending both negative and positive signals, reflecting the nervousness they generate in the short term as well as the confidence they inspire in the long term. According to Bandip Singh Rangar, CEO of Fineqia, despite the decline in capital inflows into crypto-traded products, the actual number and variety of products entering the market continues to grow. Private blockchain technology companies continue to receive investment in this declining market. »
According to Bloomberg News and Sky News, Blackrock Inc. recently invested in Coinbase Global Inc. and Barclays Plc in Copper Technologies. So far in 2022, 46 new ETPs have been issued with various crypto-currency assets. Of these ETPs, only four held BTC or ETH as underlying collateral as issuers sought to diversify their offerings.
So far in 2022, compared to the beginning of the year (YTD), the value of ETPs denominated in cryptocurrency has declined more sharply than the cryptocurrency market as a whole. Even though total assets under management decreased by 57%, which is similar to the 55% decrease seen in the cryptocurrency market as a whole, the number of ETPs increased by 42%.
At the beginning of 2022, the assets under management of 109 registered cryptocurrency ETPs were $58.5 billion. As of September 1, the number of publicly traded ETPs has risen to 155 while their value has dropped to $25.2 billion. As of September 1, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization was less than $1 trillion compared to $2.2 trillion in January.
The decision of global central banks to raise interest rates in response to inflation caused by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a sharp increase in energy prices, have led to a decrease in demand for cryptocurrencies and other crypto-backed assets.
