BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

Bitcoin ETFs see a record $1 billion inflow in a single day, and it sent BTC above 73k. Both long-term holders and short-term holders were in profit. On Friday, the market experienced a rapid and severe pullback. Nearly $678 million worth of BTC positions were liquidated on the main futures exchanges. Following the Dencun upgrade, Layer 2s have experienced a notable decrease in transaction fees. Solana's daily DEX volume hits a record high, crossing $3.5 billion as the price of meme coins surged.


Options Market

 

BTC recorded a new ATH this week while ETH topped 4k for the first time in more than two years before the market had a major correction on Friday. The flush did bring down the overall market leverage level and now we see a closer-to-normal funding rate. Near-end IV skyrocketed on the dump and cooled off to 70+ handles since then. Skew, on the other hand, manifested a neutral view on BTC and a bearish sentiment on ETH. The odds of a potential ETH ETF approval in May dropped and more hedges are done on the downside. That echoed the falling ETH/BTC conversion rate.
