On June 17, Longhash stated that in the third quarter of 2020, the Bitcoin options market experienced explosive growth. Prior to the beginning of 2019, the Bitcoin market was mainly occupied by spot and futures exchanges. Subsequently, the trading volume and open contracts of investment institutions such as the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust Fund and option exchanges such as Deribit have experienced rapid growth. According to Skew data, as of June 15, the total value of open contracts in the options market hovered above $1.5 billion. Specifically, Deribit has $1.1 billion in open positions in the options market, accounting for about 70% of the market. The volume of CME bitcoin options products also reached a record high in May. According to Skew, CME is expected to continue to break through its all-time highest monthly volume in June. If 2018 and 2019 are dominated by retail investors in the spot and futures markets, professional traders and institutions may account for a large portion of bitcoin trading volume in 2020. Data from major financial institutions such as options and the institutional market and Goldman Sachs indicate that trading activity among professional and institutional investors is increasing. This change in trend may also affect the volatility of the Bitcoin market in the long run.
