Futures Open Interest on BTC reaches a peak on the CME
Faced with this imminent approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs, we also notice a growing presence of institutional investors in the derivatives sector. Indeed, according to the Glassnode data, Bitcoin Futures Open Interest on the CME reached a peak of 36% in relative dominance.
On the Glassnode chart, the Open Interest on Bitcoin futures on the Chicago Stock Exchange currently stands at $6.34 billion.
This suggests that institutional investors are heavily engaging in Bitcoin futures trading on the CME. The flagship crypto market could thus receive large inflows of capital. Moreover, one analysis estimates that spot Bitcoin ETFs could attract up to $100 billion in inflows in 2024.
Obviously, the Bitcoin market should experience repercussions. This includes changes in terms of liquidity and volatility, as well as increased interest from institutional investors. For the moment, the price of BTC on Binance is stabilizing around $45,150, with a variation of -2.2% over the day.
