Three Arrows Capital Insolvency Factor
The AUM of crypto investment products dropped to record lows in the month of June 2022, the latest data from Cryptocompare has shown. According to the regulated benchmark administrator and digital asset data firm, this drop in the AUM was primarily caused by the uncertainties surrounding the future of crypto lending companies like Three Arrows Capital.
As the data shows, crypto exchange-traded funds (ETFs) had the most significant drop, a 52.0% decline to $1.31 billion in AUM. On the other hand, trust products which account for 80.3% of the market fell by 35.8% finishing the month at $17.3 billion. Exchange-traded commodities (ETCs) and exchange-traded notes (ETNs) fell by 36.7% and 30.6% to $1.34 billion and $1.61 billion, respectively. Summarizing the findings, Cryptocompare said:
All four product types made new record lows with Trust products recording the lowest AUM since December 2020, while ETCs AUM reached its lowest since October 2020. ETNs and ETFs followed, recording their lowest AUM since January 2021 and April 2021 respectively.
