Future’s open interest is the total amount of funds (USD Value) allocated in open futures contracts.
- As CryptoSlate has discussed in previous insights, futures open interest has declined since the collapse of FTX.
- However, the exchange CME has seen a whopping increase of over 84k BTC, the equivalent of almost $2B in the past 24 hours.
- Each time this amount of BTC is allocated in futures contracts, something big price-wise has occurred. Such as the top of the 2021 bull run in November and the collapse of the exchange FTX.
