In late January and through the better part of February 2020—when the market was trending and Bitcoin testing highs of $10,500, the number of open interests, according to stats from Skew, soared past the $1.5 billion mark.
At one point, it looked to be edging closer to $2 billion at the biggest derivatives trading platform in the world, BitMex.

Concurrently, Bitcoin’s dominance remains low.
However, this drop could be attributed to the stellar performance of altcoins over the last few days.
