While the broader crypto market has been under a consolidation phase, the world’s largest cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC) continues to inch upwards. Bitcoin (BTC) started the week on a pretty good note with the BTC price climbing past $57,000 on Monday, October 11.
As per data from Glassnode, the bitcoin futures open interest is soaring back to the early September levels. As Glassnode reported:
Bitcoin futures open interest climbed by $5.6B through October, up 45% since the September lows. Whilst elevated, the $17.6B in open interest is lower than the $22.5B worth of contracts last time prices were trading at $56k.
Popular crypto analyst Lark Davis mentions that the Bitcoin futures open interest can pump even higher. However, “such spikes often come before a correction as a long squeeze comes into effect,” he adds.
