According to a report released on Monday by the cryptocurrency data firm Kaiko, which looked at Bitcoin’s weekend volume trends since 2018, the percentage of trading that occurs on weekends has decreased, indicating that more trading occurs during the week. According to Kaiko, this indicates institutional engagement. According to the data, the percentage of Bitcoin traded on weekends has decreased dramatically over the previous six years, from 24% in 2018 to barely 17% last year.

According to CoinGlass data, the open interest-weighted funding rate for Bitcoin is surging to record highs on perpetual futures contracts, surpassing the levels observed prior to the introduction of the ETF in January. Increased demand for the underlying asset of the contract is reflected in the high open interest, which indicates that more traders are entering into contracts.

Funding rates are also increasing above levels observed prior to the spot Bitcoin ETF approvals in January, according to CoinGlass data. There may be a lot of market demand for long bets if the financing rate is high.
