BTC and ETH Market Insight


The SEC has announced the closure of their investigation into the Ethereum Foundation and ETH 2.0. ETH/BTC showed strength this week and it suggested ETH dominance in the current market. According to CryptoQuant, the long-term Bitcoin whales have been selling their BTC, making a profit of $1.2 billion over the last two weeks. Additionally, ETF net flows have seen negative activity, with outflows totalling $460 million during the same timeframe. There is a strong possibility that BTC may revisit its range lows, potentially leading to further challenges for alts.

BTC  briefly dipped below 64k support whereas ETH showed resilience to this downward trend on the closure of SEC’s investigation and the upcoming ETF flow. The implied volatility slowly creeped up - ETH’s implied volatility showed increased mid-term optimism. The desk saw decent clips of ETH Sep 4k Calls bought. ETH’s skew also suggested slightly more bullish positioning than BTC’s, with both vol smiles moving closer to neutral for shorter-dated expiries.
