Bitcoin just got a massive boost.
For the first time ever, a major bank in the U.S. carried out an OTC crypto options trade.
With the help of Galaxy Digital, Goldman Sachs was able to execute an OTC Bitcoin non-deliverable option, or an option that’s settled with cash at the maturity of the contract.
That’s a game-changer for Bitcoin.
The move now legitimizes digital currencies as stable enough for major firms to be a part of, it signals that crypto-assets have matured. Plus, according to Damien Vanderwilt, Co-President, and Head of Global Markets at Galaxy Digital, a quoted by Fox, said the transaction is expected “to open the door for other banks considering OTC as a conduit for trading digital assets.”
It could also open the floodgates to options tied to digital assets.
In fact, Andrei Kazantsev, Goldman’s global head of crypto trading has already said he’s seeing good deal of demand for more derivative-type hedging. “The next big step that we are envisioning is the development of options markets,” as quoted by Fox Business.
In short, we could be looking at a massive options-trading opportunity here.
