Bitcoin Open Interest Takes Second Largest Dump Of 2021


Bitcoin has recorded significant losses in just the first week of December. The digital asset has taken some of the largest hits for the year in just last week alone following liquidations over the weekend. This has expectedly had a huge impact on the amount of open interest in bitcoin. Following the dump, BTC denominated open interest took a nosedive.

The dip in open interest was significant enough to near-record levels for 2021. With bitcoin losing more than $10,000 in value, open interest had declined rapidly. This is worrying given that open interest had dropped not too long ago and another drop this time around does not spell good news for the market.
