BTC and ETH Market Insight

 

The SEC's sudden approval of spot Ethereum ETFs took everyone by surprise, as most were expecting a rejection. Ethereum is now considered a commodity. Despite the unexpected approval of spot Ethereum ETFs by the SEC, both ETH and BTC experienced a drop in value with ETH down by 4% trading at $3,706 and BTC down by 3.66% after hitting $71K on Wednesday. Despite the underwhelming inflows of ETFs in Hong Kong, regulators are considering permitting ETF issuers to engage in Ether staking.


Options Market

 

ETH and BTC spot spread bounced back strongly from the low on the ETF approval. The implied volatility of ETH, particularly the front-ends,  gradually climbed up following an upgrade in the probability of an ETH spot ETF being approved and quickly got hammered post the approval as the approval failed to spark an explosive move in the market. The implied volatility for BTC increased a bit along with  ETH and quickly cooled off after the decision. Skew moved further down to favour calls for ETH while BTC’s skew rose a little but still favour calls.
