The trend points to growing demand for cryptocurrency futures and options contracts, often traded in derivatives by professional and full-time traders.

These data can be analyzed in two distinct ways. This could mean that there is an overall increase in demand for Bitcoin among traders, or that the market is already overheating. When the futures market acts as a major catalyst for the Bitcoin market, it increases the likelihood of a major surge.

Because futures contracts are leveraged, with top exchanges offering up to 100x leverage, it could increase the likelihood of a long squeeze if the spot market doesn't adequately replenish futures volume.

The researchers explained that the spot market volume is currently climbing in tandem, albeit at a slower pace. The researchers noted:

“Amid the current bull market, spot trading volumes picked up again in late July. After CryptoCompare updated its benchmark rankings of exchanges in July, data showed that trading volumes on riskier exchanges generally fell as users began to switch to riskier exchanges. low (top) exchanges."

Whether spot trading volumes and prevailing sentiment will be high enough to push the price of Bitcoin above the major resistance at $12,500 is uncertain.
