CME comment by Larry Cermak
TheBlock’s famous cryptocurrency analyst, Larry Cermak, shared a tweet about the CME Group on Twitter. In his tweet, he pointed out the decline seen in BitMEX and OKEx exchanges, saying that CME Group has quietly become one of the most preferred platforms for open positions in Bitcoin futures. According to Cermak, the $ 790 million open positions seen in the CME Group are just after the top $ 992 million open positions of OKEx.
With the fall of BitMEX and OKEx still not enabling withdrawals, CME has quietly become the futures platform with the second-largest open interest for Bitcoin. Yesterday, CME has $790M in open interest while the leading OKEx had $992M. This is a big deal IMO pic.twitter.com/9FcStToQBS
