BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

BTC made a new ATH of 70k this week. Over $95M of future positions were liquidated as Bitcoin reached $70K and dropped below $68K. Bitcoin took 847 days to reach its all-time high, while in the last bull market, it took nearly 1081 days to surpass the 2017 peak. Coinbase makes a comeback to App Store's top 100 after two years. SEC delayed BlackRock's Ethereum ETF proposal. Ethereum has become deflationary, with the EIP-1559 upgrade resulting in a burn of over 1.5M ETH, worth more than $5.85B at current prices.


Options Market

 

As previously conversed in the last week’s update, the persisting high leverage did bring more volatility to the market. Indeed, the market flushed twice during the week after recording hitting the new ATH. Short-term IV (7D) had been very jumpy on the move although the mid and long dated structure remained rather steady at 70+ for both BTC and ETH. The leverage level did come off after these violent moves, suggesting the upward momentum might continue in a healthier manner. Skew move was quite mixed as we see more demand on the downside protection whereas those long positioning did not flip either.
