Bitcoin is back at the top of the market.
After hitting an all-time high of around $ 65,000 in mid-April, Bitcoin had taken a back seat to let altcoins experience a mind-boggling rally.
But now, after almost six months, Bitcoin has taken over the reins. On Wednesday, the price of BTC hit $ 55,700. This level was last seen on May 12, during the sell-off.
With this latest spike, Bitcoin has reverted back to being a trillion dollar asset.
October turns out to be a bullish month after the red month of September. Historically, not only has September seen negative returns, but the fourth quarter has also seen a substantial rise.
Kraken Intelligence also noted in its research blog that September headwinds for bitcoin “appear to have positioned the market to rally higher and throughout the fourth quarter.” He added that the fourth quarter is Bitcoin’s best quarter in history, with an average and median return of 119% and 58%, respectively.
Dominant Futures Market In the futures market, the funding rate on Bitcoin perpetual contracts is still normal, with the high on FTX at 0.0320%. Delphi Digital said,
“While BTC started to recover in October, the base has not grown as aggressively as one might have imagined. BTC has become a perpetual market and dominated by futures contracts.
As for open interest in Bitcoin futures, it climbed to $ 17.4 billion to reach early September levels.

The OI for BTC options is also up, currently at $ 8.56 billion.
“The rise coincided with the rally in BTC in early October. After a large expiration, OI tends to rebound as the capital released from expirations returns to the market. “
Banks capitulate This week we saw US Bancorp (NYSE 🙂 launch a crypto custodial service for institutional investment managers and Bank of America Corp (NYSE 🙂 publish its first crypto research coverage. Additionally, Soros Fund owns Bitcoin, CEO Dawn Fitzpatrick revealed.
“Banks are capitulating one by one,” said Martha Reyes, head of research at BEQUANT, the leading digital asset brokerage.
“For those of us who work in space, that it’s too big to ignore is hardly news, and regulators are certainly not ignoring it.”
Pumping Bitcoin is not only good for BTC itself, but also for altcoins, as it means big players are entering the market, and it’s not just a few players trying to cash in and manipulate small pieces of market capitalization.
During this bull assault, altcoins register gains with the ether rising to $ 3,625. The other big winner today is the SHIB (24%), which has seen a rally since the start of this week.
