“We also found that ‘first time’ users, customers who made a transaction with a crypto platform having not made one previously, have also fallen very sharply,” the report adds.

Bank of America further noted that there were only around 33,000 clients who transacted in crypto for the first time in May, which was an 87% decline compared to the 267,000 first-time users in October last year.

Our data also shows that outflows to crypto platforms have fallen sharply as well and are now broadly equal to inflows, indicating that consumers are pulling back on their net investment into crypto platforms.

“In dollar terms outflows peaked around $2.9 billion in late 2021, before dropping back to around $1 billion in May 2022,” the bank said.
