  • Its decoupling from the stock market 
  • What it means that U.S. institutional-focused CME futures are outpacing Deribit retail-focused international futures 
  • How bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund (ETF) speculation is driving excitement
  • How growing macro insecurity is driving the BTC narrative
