BTC and ETH Market Insight


Binance and Coinbase were sued by the SEC, and their respective net outflows reached $491.9M and $105.3M after the news hit the market. Altcoins related to SEC lawsuits experienced a drop of approximately 15-25% during the weekend due to the forced selling, and some even were at covid lows. During the risk-off environment, we saw the capital concentrating on more liquid coins, like $BTC, $ETH, and stables. Although the news dragged $BTC to a key $25k level,  its dominance was hitting a multi-month high of 49.2%. 


Options Market


BTC dominance surged, nearing the 50% market for the first time since April 2021. From higher beta alts to majors, most cryptocurrencies shed 5-20% following the regulatory headlines. However, a large increase in realized volatility as a result of the SEC’s lawsuits against Binance and Coinbase did not see an inspired increase in ATM implied volatility for either BTC or ETH. The Saturday selloff only pushed ETH 1W ATM implied vol up to 46%.
