🗞 Bitcoin Breaks $11,800; Ether Options Market Explodes

Bitcoin continues its rebound this week after Sunday’s crash. Meanwhile, the ether options market suggests a roller coaster ride ahead for the world’s second largest cryptocurrency.

  • Bitcoin (BTC) trading around $11,868 as of 20:00 UTC (4 p.m. ET). Gaining 1.8% over the previous 24 hours.
  • Bitcoin’s 24-hour range: $11,528-$11,915
  • BTC above 10-day and 50-day moving averages, a bullish signal for market technicians.

“Bitcoin reached above $12,000 on Aug. 2, but its ascension was stopped short,” said Jean-Baptiste Pavageau, a partner at quantitative trading firm ExoAlpha. “However, the impact on bitcoin was short-lived, and a breakout above $12,500 on high volume would definitely put BTC on the way.”

Record ether options open interest

The ether options market is on an absolute tear and seeing huge amounts of bets. Open interest is now approaching $400 million. Most of it is on Netherlands-based platform Deribit, which leads the way with $351 million, according to data from aggregator Skew. Options give owners to the right, though not the obligation, to buy or sell an underlying asset.

🗞 Analysis: Most DeFi Tokens Are Concentrated In Hands of Top 500 Holders

Token supplies for most decentralized finance (DeFi) projects are not widely distributed according to an analysis by the co-founder of DeFi Italy and Head of CryptoLab’s Digital Assets Investments Simone Conti.

He compiled data from Defi Pulse and Etherscan that suggests that 90% of tokens for almost all DeFi projects are held by the top 500 addresses. For three of the projects, that figure rises to 99%.

According to a graphic shared by Conti, Compound is the ‘most concentrated’ of the Top 10 surveyed projects (by total locked value) with 96% of the total supply being held by a few dozen people in the top 50 holders.

🗞 Chinese Banks Set to Adopt Blockchain-powered Forfaiting Platform

The China National Clearing Center (CNCC), the Chinese central bank's settlements and clearing arm, is set to work with three major banks to foster a blockchain-powered forfaiting trading platform – aimed at boosting the efficiency of export financing.

Per Sina, the CNCC has sealed a deal that also involves the China CITIC Bank, one of the nation’s biggest lenders. China Minsheng Bank, which specializes in financing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and the Bank of China, one of China’s “big four” state-owned commercial banks, are the other signatories.

The deal will see the parties adopt a blockchain-powered forfaiting trading solution developed by China CITIC Bank – and could pave the way for other banks in the nation to follow suit.

🗞 Bitmain Delays Delivery of Bitcoin Miners by Three Months, as Co-Founders Battle for Company Control

Bitmain has delayed shipments of its Antminer bitcoin mining machines by three months, as the tussle between co-founders, Jihan Wu and Micree Zhan Ketuan, for control of the company intensifies.

According to a post on Bitmain’s official Wechat account, the Beijing-based bitcoin miner maker said customers whose orders were due for delivery in June and July will have to wait until September and October.

The equipment is typically ordered three months prior to delivery. That means the postponed shipments may have been ordered around March, making this a costly six-month wait for the affected bitcoin miners.
