Tomorrow, Jan. 26, is the expiration of a staggering $5.82 billion worth of Bitcoin and Ethereum options, a potentially influential event for both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) markets.

The options, divided into $3.75 billion for BTC and $2.08 billion for ETH, depict an interesting dynamic for both leading digital assets. For BTC, with a put/call ratio of 0.52 and a defined ‘max pain point’ at $41,000, there lies significant open interest of over $360 million at a strike price of $50,000.
