Insights from Glassnode have also noticed the massive bitcoin futures open interest this week. “Futures open interest has hit yet another all-time high of over $23.1B this week, with Binance and OKex representing the lion’s share with a combined total of 32% of all contracts,†Glassnode detailed on Monday.

“Keep in mind that large open interest can exacerbate market volatility in response to price corrections if leverage is unwound quickly. Interestingly, futures volumes have been in steady decline throughout March with this week being particularly quiet relative to volume in previous months,†researchers at Glassnode noted in the company’s weekly newsletter.

43% Chance Bitcoin Will Hit $64K by the End of April, Cboe Looks to Re-Enter the Bitcoin Futures Game

Delta Exchange CEO, Pankaj Balani says that according to bitcoin futures, BTC has a 43% chance the crypto asset will hit $64k by the end of April. “Let’s say BTC trades at $50k; then skew is the difference in implied volatility of, say, a $52k call and a $48k put,†Balani detailed in a note to Bitcoin.com’s newsdesk. “In the case of positive skew, traders are willing to pay more for an OTM call to gain upside exposure than for the equivalent put to protect themselves from falling prices. As such it can give us an insight into market participants’ expectations of spot price movements.â€

Balani further added:

In recent months bitcoin futures have been wild and have swelled in demand since the bull run started. Perpetual swaps and bitcoin options markets have grown enormously as well as Deribit is the king of the bitcoin options game today. Moreover, there have been call options for the price of BTC to hit $100k to $300k by December 31, 2021. Meanwhile, Cboe Global Markets CEO Ed Tilly explained that the firm may re-list BTC futures.

“We’re still interested in the space, we haven’t given up on it,†Tilly said in an interview published last Thursday. “We’re keen on building out the entire platform. There’s a lot of demand from retail and institutions, and we need to be there,†the Cboe executive added.
