Historic Rise in Bitcoin Ethereum Options! At the leading options exchange Deribit, the estimated total open interest representing the dollar value locked in active Bitcoin and Ether options contracts has surpassed $20.64 billion.

This figure is trending fairly close to the peak on November 9, 2021, when Bitcoin was trading at an extraordinary $66,000 level, almost 90% above the market price of $34,170 at that time. In other words, the current open interest level significantly exceeds the level in November 2021.

Deribit’s CCO, Luuk Strijers:

“This success represents not only a big victory for Deribit but also a clear indicator of growing interest in options among our clients and broader market growth”

he said. Deribit controls 90% of the global crypto options trading volume.

Options are derivative contracts that give the buyer the right, without the obligation, to buy or sell the underlying asset at a predetermined price before a certain date. A call option gives the buyer the right to buy, while a put option provides the right to sell. A call option buyer expects a bullish market, whereas a put option buyer displays a more bearish stance.
