According to the Skew service, the daily volume of transactions with bitcoin futures reached $ 5 billion. Analysts conclude that investor interest in this market segment is growing rapidly. A significant shift in this direction was made in 2019. At the moment, users of the CME, Bakkt and Binance JEX platforms can perform operations in the bitcoin futures market. In addition, BitMEX and OKEx crypto exchanges offer similar products. More and more traders prefer to bet on bitcoin price movements. At the same time, players do not pay much attention to the actual adoption of an asset or to a deficit of bitcoin. In fact, investors bet on increasing or decreasing BTC without access to real coins. This is the main difference from the spot market, where key holders of cryptocurrencies or the so-called "whales" occupy key positions. Of course, the spot market remains dominant. On average, his daily trading volume is $ 18 billion. However, in recent months, there has been a dynamic increase in the influence of the bitcoin futures market. A special role in this was played by the launch of the Bakkt platform, the trading volume on which is constantly breaking records. On the night of Saturday, November 30, the Bitcoin exchange rate strengthened to $ 7,780, the coin has a real chance of taking the $ 8,000 mark by the end of this week, experts say.
