Following the recent surge in Bitcoin’s price, there has been a notable increase in the number of open positions on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). This surge in market activity is a clear indication of the growing investor interest in the cryptocurrency.
BlackRock’s Spot Bitcoin ETF Application Update
One of the primary drivers of Bitcoin’s recent rally is believed to be BlackRock’s update to its spot Bitcoin ETF application. BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm with over $10 trillion in assets under management, recently updated its ETF application. This update included the addition of a surveillance agreement clause and named Coinbase as the price tracking firm.

The number of investors holding futures positions of at least 25 Bitcoins on the CME has also seen a significant increase. This number rose from 94 on May 30 to 121, nearly reaching the peak of 122 seen at the end of March. This high level of open positions typically indicates a high demand for the financial instrument in question.
ETF Applications and the SEC
The ETF applications will be approved by the SEC, which currently has multiple cases with Coinbase. Other companies that have applied for a spot Bitcoin ETF have indicated that they will be working with CBOE. CBOE also updated its ETF applications last week, adding a surveillance agreement clause and announcing a partnership with Coinbase.
