Crypto Assets Under Management (AUM) Soar 27% to $66B in Feb on Bitcoin Strength

Total crypto assets under management (AUM) soared by 27% to $65.66 billion in February, driven by rising Bitcoin prices and growing adoption of Spot Bitcoin ETFs in the US.

CCData’s latest monthly report, released Monday, revealed that average daily trading volumes continued to rise in the past month, jumping nearly 15% to $1.8b.

“This rise, while more modest compared to January’s surge, underscores a consistent upward trend and robust investor engagement, largely attributed to the enthusiastic market response to ETFs in the US,” the report said.

Among the top 10 ETFs, BlackRock’s iShares and Fidelity’s FBTC attracted inflows of $6.02b and $4.23b, respectively, indicating robust investor confidence and market momentum.
