Now, crypto bulls and bears will be able to bet on Bitcoin ETF-based derivatives on NYSE Arca Options platform and NYSE American Options platform.

Bloomberg's chief ETF analyst, Eric Balchunas, believes that in this case options are of huge importance. He has compared Bitcoin ETF options in the U.S. to YOLO ETF (a cannabis ETF by AdvisorShares).

On the first trading day, the Bitcoin ETF closed at around $570 million, pushing the Bitcoin price above the $634,000 level by now, making it move close to its April all-time high of $64,800.

Many are expecting the leading crypto to set a new ATH soon.
