Meanwhile, on Aug. 25, the expiry of $1.9 billion in monthly Bitcoin options led to highly speculative markets; however, prices remained non-reactive. Around the same time, the SEC’s loss in the Grayscale court ruling led to the likelihood of having a spot bitcoin ETF in the future. This pushed prices higher to $28,000 levels, but the surge was short-lived as prices dropped back to $26,000.
