BTC and ETH Market Insight


The US Securities and Exchange Commission has decided not to appeal the court's ruling regarding the Grayscale Bitcoin ETF. The discount for GBTC has decreased and is currently at 16.5%. Despite the recent macro uncertainty, BTC showed resilience and outperformed both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100. The trading volume of the market has further shrunk. According to data from Messari, Daily NFT volumes fell by 49% to $12 million and daily DEX volumes fell by 24% to less than $1B in Q3 2023.


Options Market

Crypto markets saw muted reaction to the geopolitical concern in the Middle East. As a matter of fact, the correlation between crypto and tradifi markets remained rather non-existent. Front-end Implied volatilities dropped 2-3 points in tandem with realised volatility. The BTC term structure came under pressure, notably from its mid-curve. ETH’s term structure mirrored the dynamics seen in BTC. Near-term skew rose further to favour puts for both BTC and ETH.
