BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

BlackRock has taken the first step towards filing for an Ether ETF spot. As a result, ETH's price has surged and broken the $2K barrier for the first time since July. The market cap of Bitcoin has crossed $750 billion for the first time since April 2022. Moreover, the entire cryptocurrency market is on the verge of reaching a $1.5 trillion market cap for the first time in almost two years. Stablecoin liquidity is starting to recover, with an increase of more than $3 billion in the last month alone. The NFT market was displaying signs of a rebound in trading volume and floor prices. Although only a select few collections are anticipated to survive, the ones that do are likely to outperform ETH.


Options Market

 

The ETHBTC ratio seemed to have hit support and appeared to start bouncing back. This is also shown in the volatility spread between ETH and BTC which narrowed down further with ETH rallying above 2100 level on BlackRock’s ETH ETF filing. FOMO sentiment went into overdrive. Skew, on the other hand, showed some divergence this week as BTC’s skew cooled off quite a bit whereas ETH’s held strong on the uptrend momentum. More call spreads were printed over the week, suggesting the market is conservatively optimistic for the near future ahead of spot ETF approval.
