Lower bitcoin spot volumes and flatter-than-usual price action doesn’t mean crypto traders have zero opportunities to capitalize.

Activity in the bitcoin options market picked up pace on Thursday, as spot prices jumped above key resistance over $7,000.
After weeks of elevated activity, trading volumes on spot bitcoin exchanges have subsided, boding well for some traders if not the venues themselves.
