    Raising the stakes
    
    On May 23, an anonymous trader placed 30 Bitcoin call options on LedgerX with the strike price being set at a staggering $50,000. U.Today reminds its readers that call options (or simply ‘calls’) are <a href="https://u.today/huobi-derivative-market-to-start-trading-eos-on-december-28">derivative</a> contracts that allow the holder to buy an asset at a specific price while setting an expiration date. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    
    The stakes are high. If Bitcoin fails to reach the aforementioned number by June 2020, these options will be worthless. On the flip side, this trader could potentially rake in enormous profits in case BTC indeed smashes the target.

    A risky bet &nbsp;&nbsp;
    
    LedgerX co-founder Juthica Chou claims that this is the first time when call-options trades at such high prices since 2017. Back in May, they saw the $25,000 figure, but it seems like traders are ramping up their game.

On May 23, an anonymous trader placed 30 Bitcoin call options on LedgerX with the strike price being set at a staggering $50,000. U.Today reminds its readers that call options (or simply ‘calls’) are derivative contracts that allow the holder to buy an asset at a specific price while setting an expiration date.    

The stakes are high. If Bitcoin fails to reach the aforementioned number by June 2020, these options will be worthless. On the flip side, this trader could potentially rake in enormous profits in case BTC indeed smashes the target.

LedgerX co-founder Juthica Chou claims that this is the first time when call-options trades at such high prices since 2017. Back in May, they saw the $25,000 figure, but it seems like traders are ramping up their game.
