Bakkt Bitcoin Futures volume exploded to a new all-time high yesterday, with today’s early action suggesting a continued surge in interest.

According to an update posted on October 24 by @BakktBot, the physically-settled futures contracts were able to sell 640 units on Wednesday — marking a new all-time high.

The Twitter account also showed that the daily peg bested the previous day pretty convincingly, marking a 652 percent increase over Tuesday’s peg of just 85 BTC.

Smooth Sailing for Bakkt From Now On?

Considering how woefully Bakkt’s futures performed in previous weeks, the news of their steady growth is music to the ears of Bitcoin enthusiasts. However, it wouldn’t be so surprising to see them slump again — as we’ve witnessed some inconsistency in the past.

Two weeks ago, the account reported that Bakkt had sold 224 contracts on the day — up about 796 percent from the previous day’s 25 contracts. Then, the plunge in trading volumes came.

For some, the new rally in daily volumes suggests a new dawn for Bakkt. @BakktBot even estimates that up to 3067 BTC could be sold today, alone. While it is still a long shot from the current level of 92 BTC, it seems that Bakkt has woken up from its slumber.

Institutions Are Propping up the Market

It’s rather interesting that the increase in Bakkt volumes is coinciding with a new report which shows that institutional interest in the Bakkt futures products themselves is high. As BeInCrypto reported, institutional investors had made long positions in Bitcoin futures worth over 1,000 BTC in October alone — worth about $8.2 million at the time — a statistic which was up from less than 500 BTC the previous month.

Given the data shown, it is noteworthy that futures have begun to surge thanks to renewed activity in the space fuelled by these institutions. However, it is also worth noting that this increase is different from the one reported last week based on its correlation to the Bitcoin price.

The spike from last week coincided with an increase in Bitcoin’s price from $8,200 to $8,600. On the other hand, this surge is coming despite a continued drop in the price of the asset. Bitcoin has steadily dropped since Tuesday, moving from $8,234 to $7,484 at press time.
