‘Revival in Institutional Interest’
The latest Bitfinex report found that call options are emerging as the preferred instrument for investors seeking exposure to bitcoin (BTC)‘s upward potential, stating that the overall options market activity is growing “at an unprecedented pace.”
It noted that options open interest shows signs of a gradual recovery, standing at $1.15 billion for October, and argued that,
“While it’s shy of its all-time high, the trajectory suggests a revival in institutional interest.”
There was an increase of $4.3 billion in open interest for call options in October, which is an 80% surge, showing “a significant shift in risk appetite and investment strategy towards long-term value appreciation.”
Furthermore, in October, the total assets under management (AUM) for digital asset products surged by 6.74% to reach $31.7 billion – the first increase since July, according to crypto data provider CCData’s Digital Asset Management Review.
Average daily aggregate volumes of digital asset investment products jumped 44.3% to $230 million.
The increase reflected the positive sentiment of market participants surrounding exchange-traded fund (ETF) approvals, the report noted.
October is set to register an increase of more than 27% following a green September – the second-highest growth on a monthly basis this year, according to Bitfinex analysts. November is likely to follow suit, they added, citing historical data: there’s a 60% likelihood that November will be green for BTC.
