Bitcoin Price broke the resistances and could surge to around $23,000. However, many investors and traders predict higher prices for Bitcoin. In fact, they are still optimistic about its price and expect that it will set new records in its history.

Recently, a platform called “Deribit” allows traders bet whether Bitcoin will hit $100K or not.
Bitcoin will hit $100K in the near future
The Bitcoin derivatives trading is surging rapidly these days. Recently, a platform allows traders bet that flagship cryptocurrency will meet $100,000 by Sept, 2021. This strike established due to an increase in daily trading volume.
In fact, in options trading, a strike price refers to the value, which derivative contract be sold or bought when it is applied.
Deribit is one of the largest crypto derivative exchanges
The marketing data, which was published on Twitter Thursday, show that Deribit processed 754,123 BTC options contracts just in November. Deribit is the tenth-largest crypto derivatives exchange on CMC (CoinMarketCap). However, the volume, which revealed by CMC may not show the actual market turnover. The reason is that the data collection has methodological issues.
In addition, Skew report shows that Deribit is the largest derivatives market for Bitcoin trades. In fact, Skew is the platform, which provide crypto data analytics. The Skew added that daily options trading in Bitcoin exceeded $1 billion for its first time.
