At the time of going to press, the DOT was trade at $ 28.72, after dropping 1.68% in the past 24 hours.
Some time after the first round of the Polkadot Parachain Slots Auctions, the CoinShares report for the week ending December 17 recorded inflows of $ 2.5 million for the alt. This happened even as Bitcoin and Ethereum made significant outflows that week.
