BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

Jerome Powell has stated that interest rate cuts will not take place until inflation is better managed. Bitcoin fell to as low as $66,000 and ETH briefly fell to $3,319. The transfer of $2 billion worth of Silk Road Bitcoin assets by the U.S. government has attracted attention amid market pullback. Since their inception, Bitcoin ETFs have brought in an average of $213M per day and currently hold 4.25% of the total circulating supply. 77.5% of Solana transactions are failing because Solana nodes are overwhelmed and bots start spamming txs to the network to maximize the chance that a tx gets processed. 


Options Market

 

Realised volatility came back to life this week as BTC and ETH broke past the 70k and 3.5k levels respectively. This is seen as a repeat of the leverage flush out that we have seen during this bull run. The funding rate finally came down to a normal and healthy level. The upcoming halving event keeps implied volatility stable and we now see a small vol premium on BTC over ETH. Front-end skew shifted back to favour calls. Although gamma selling becomes less attractive, it still makes sense as the volatility carry remains positive.
