BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

Crypto assets experienced $346M inflows last week, the biggest in nine weeks due to expectations of a US spot-based ETF launch. Long-term Bitcoin holders currently own almost 15 million coins. CME's standard BTC futures open interest has surged by 35% in just four weeks, reaching 19,603 contracts (approximately $3.4B). This increase is a strong indication of growing investor interest in Bitcoin futures. GBTC traded at a discount of approximately -8.42%, the smallest discount seen this year.


Options Market

 

Recent trends showed a consistent inflow of institutional investment into cryptocurrencies. With the imminent potential ETF spot approval, BTC spot broke out to print the new year high while ETH seemed to experience a stronger resistance on the 2100 pivot level. BTC’s term structure experienced significant pressure this week- front-end IVs dipped in tandem with RVs and the longer end of the curve dropped around one point but remained relatively stable at about 58 vol. ETH’s term structure mirrored BTC’s behavior. Skew-wise, BTC was holding up better than ETH.
