  • Crypto Derivatives: Analytics Report – Week 8

    Since the previous update, both BTC and ETH annualised yields have continued to rise, reaching their highest levels since the buildup of leverage preceding BTC’s ETF announcement. Continued positive funding rates for BTC and ETH perpetual swaps indicate demand for leveraged long exposure. BTC’s SABR ATM implied volatility has risen significantly across all tenors, with a strong skew towards OTM calls in BTC’s 25-Delta Risk Reversal, especially at longer-dated tenors. ETH’s volatility has also increased notably, particularly at the 3-month tenor, but with a less bullish sentiment at shorter-dated tenors, indicated by a tilt towards puts in the 25-Delta Risk Reversal. Both BTC and ETH implied vol surfaces have trended upward over the past 30 days, suggesting ongoing market volatility across derivatives markets.

    Investing in EigenLayer

    It’s exceedingly rare to come across a founder with a vision and plan that has the potential to change everything. I have come to know EigenLayer founder Sreeram Kannan to be not only brilliant, but also fundamentally motivated by a vision of the future so crisp and compelling that it momentarily becomes real when you talk to him. Sreeram has what I like to call the Promethean flame; he is driven to bring a new technology to life first and foremost because of the future it will create.
