As Bitcoin price rallied to a new 2020 high, the open interest on CME Bitcoin (BTC) futures rose to $1.16 billion, making it the world’s largest Bitcoin futures market, according to Arcane Research. This suggests that institutional investors are relatively unmoved by the recent sharp correction in Bitcoin price.
