What BitMEX scandal? Bitcoin futures data shows traders focused on $12K
Bitcoin futures and options sentiment held steady despite the BitMEX and Kucoin news, signaling a $12K bull run is near. BitMEX used to be the indisputable leader of Bitcoin (BTC) futures trading and if something similar to yesterday's civil enforcement action were to happen back in 2015-2018 the crypto markets would have completely collapsed. Regardless of partial recovery to $10,600, which was relatively quick, derivatives markets held steady during the $500 drop down to $10,400.
