CME bitcoin options performed strongly in first week, trading 610 BTC last Friday alone

Encrypted data analysis platform Skew said that CME Bitcoin options trading performed strongly in the first week, trading 610 BTC on Friday. According to CME data, 122 bitcoin options contracts were traded on January 17, and the price of bitcoin showed an upward trend on that day. Last Friday alone, the trading volume was about 610 BTC (about $ 5.3 million). For comparison, Bakkt's transaction amount on the same day was only $ 178,000. The latest Arcane research also points out that the CME platform is becoming more and more popular, and is more favored by institutional investors than Bakkt. Leaving aside CME's popularity, Deribit and OKEx also dominate bitcoin options trading because Deribit has gained a large share of the market.
