Gauging Market Sentiment via Bitcoin Derivatives Data on Skew — Report

Derivatives are contracts that track an underlying asset and derive their value from its price. While various derivatives for traditional assets have existed for thousands of years, they are relatively new to the crypto space and are predominantly based on Bitcoin ( BTC) as the underlying.

Without delving into a detailed explanation of existing Bitcoin derivatives — namely, futures, perpetual swaps and options — this report will instead focus on data obtained from OKEx derivatives markets and how it can be interpreted to understand market sentiments at any given time.

As the Bitcoin derivatives space grows and top exchanges like OKEx process daily derivatives volumes in the billions of dollars, traders — both retail and institutional — stand to benefit from reliable derivatives data streams. Recognizing this potential, OKEx has partnered with real-time derivatives data-focused platform skew to be the first exchange to share extensive data from its futures and options markets.

This report will serve as a guide to understanding derivatives data, highlighting and explaining some of the new charts now publicly available as a result of the OKEx-skew partnership.
