BTC and ETH Market Insight


BTC's price remains within a stable range and ecosystems lacking in stable liquidity will face significant difficulties. Several alts have already lost their year-to-date gains and will continue to decrease in value. Memes and AI coins have been the best-performing categories. The relationship between cryptocurrency and the upcoming US presidential election appears to be increasingly influential on one another. The betting odds for the approval of an ETH ETF experienced a significant increase over the weekend.

Options Market


BTC continued to consolidate in the 60k-65k range. Although the market promptly pulled back from 63k to 61k post-option expiry, the implied volatility drifted lower causing pains to longs - one-month implied volatility moved down to 51 points for BTC and 56 for ETH. This represents a good entry opportunity for those who seek to hold options as the implied volatility is now trading at a decent discount vs its corresponding realised volatility. That said, should the market remain choppy, the realised volatility  is expected to come down as well. Front-end skew shifted to favour puts again as the market fell - BTC 59k Put buyers and ETH 3k and 2.6k Put buyers contributed noticeable flows.
