3. Skew - Skew has been quite volatile this week, especially the front end, which briefly dumped into put premium on BC last week but then saw a quick rebound with spot recovering from near 30k once again.

4. BTC Option volumes dropping off last week due to a lack of volatility. / ETH Option flows once again bullish and in the longer part of the curve.
