BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

Risk-assets surged as Nvidia beat estimates, and the AI narrative continued to heat up. Less than two months until the next Bitcoin halving, BTC struggled to gain momentum after hitting $52k. Ethereum reached $3,000 before slightly pulling back, driven by factors like the Dencun upgrade and spot Ethereum ETF news. The upcoming Ethereum Dencun update, set for March 13, is expected to deliver substantial progress to the Ethereum ecosystem, with a particular emphasis on its impact on Layer-2 platforms.


Options Market

 

With BTC consolidating around 51k-52k, front-end implied volatility has stabilized at 52 vol range while historical volatility is gradually dropping. On the other hand, ETH’s implied volatility ranges at 60 while historical volatility is rising. Open interests of both markets have shrunk, indicating a lack of direction for the time being.
