‘Bitcoin is not an asset that is designed to be leveraged’ says Caitlin Long

Avanti Financial CEO says Bitcoin shouldn’t be leveraged, while regulations for stablecoins are underway

All eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as the largest cryptocurrency shot up past $40,000 on June 14. Unsurprisingly, the price increase happened shortly after Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the electric-car company would potentially accept BTC payments once more miners confirm green energy initiatives

Yet while Musk’s tweet may have driven the price of Bitcoin up, some industry experts believe that Bitcoin is not a cryptocurrency that should be leveraged. For example, during an exclusive interview at Bitcoin 2021 in Miami, Caitlin Long, founder and CEO of Avanti Financial, told Cointelegraph that unlike other cryptocurrencies, solvency matters more than leverage and liquidity when it comes to Bitcoin:

“Once you get into Bitcoin and you start losing money, I consider that to be really valuable tuition for really learning what Bitcoin is. We’ve got a lot of new people in this industry now who are going through those lessons, and hopefully folks will learn from them. Especially in this bull market, there’s been so much leverage added to the system. For those of us who’ve been around a long time, we’ve learned these lesson a long time ago – You don’t leverage Bitcoin.”

A regulatory push for Bitcoin and stablecoins

In addition to advising that Bitcoin shouldn’t be leveraged, Long mentioned that there are new regulations for Bitcoin coming out of Washington D.C., something which she believes has been coordinated with other government bodies. “It was Ray Dalio who said that Bitcoin’s biggest threat is success, because that means the regulators are going to be cracking down,” said Long.

Although this may be, Long pointed out that regulations will not ban cryptocurrency or Bitcoin — as long as users comply. She said:

“The punchline is that if you pay your taxes and you get regulated, and you don’t take shortcuts, you’re going to be okay. Those that are trying to commit crimes, or defraud consumers, or not pay taxes, and not comply with the law, then those people are not going to be okay.”

Long also noted that regulations around stablecoins are a priority for lawmakers. In particular, this will ensure that stablecoins don’t infect the U.S. dollar payment system with liquidity risk. To put this into perspective, Long mentioned the accidental hard fork that happened for a few hours in Ethereum (ETH) during November of last year, saying:

“At the time I was thinking what would happen if all the Ethereum ERC20 stablecoins had to be redeemed within the span of minutes because they had to be burned on one fork and reissued on another? That is not a risk that the traditional financial system has been thinking about.”

Moreover, Long commented on the risks associated with stablecoins back in May, warning that the entire stablecoin market has the potential to bring down other tokens upon a credit market correction.

Here’s how pros safely trade Bitcoin while it range trades near $40K

Traders who are unsure about Bitcoin’s chance of continuation above $40,000 can use a combination of protective put options to generate profit.

Investors tend to define the market as either bullish or bearish, but sometimes the price can remain within a specific range for an extended period. 

This type of sideways movement is not necessarily stable because cryptocurrency markets have high volatility that stems from a range of uncertainties and the early adoption cycle.

For example, investors who concluded that the Bitcoin (BTC) bull run was over after the first week of 2021 probably regret that decision.

Starting on Jan. 8, Bitcoin price traded in a descending channel within a $10,000 range. The movement lasted for 26 days until it finally broke out in early February.

In August and September 2020, Bitcoin had two distinct ranging periods. However, it is not possible to consider those movements as a bull market. On the other hand, bears had few reasons to celebrate since the $10,000 bottom was tested multiple times, but the market recovered from it.

Is Bitcoin price in an ascending channel?

Although it seems premature to call it, there is a possibility that Bitcoin has entered a positive range aiming for $40,000 by the end of June.

The present range indicates a $37,000 to $43,000 range for June 25, but with crypto’s extreme volatility, the channel’s support and resistance levels are sometimes drastically tested.

There is reason to believe that an impending short-squeeze could quickly recover a $50,000 support for Bitcoin, considering the $500 million raised by MicroStrategy and Paul Tudor Jones’s intention to increase his BTC position.

On the other hand, there are also fears that U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s remarks about digital assets being used for money laundering and illicit payments standing as a threat to Bitcoin price. Furthermore, Gary Gensler, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission chair, recently expressed concerns about the absence of regulation on crypto exchanges.

Smart traders take less risk on range trading moves

For options traders, the best option sometimes is to bet on maintaining the current range, especially for short-term periods. That’s where the Christmas tree spread with puts strategy enters into play.

Instead of betting on a bull or bear market, this option strategy uses protective put options to benefit traders with a neutral stance. The investor will profit if Bitcoin remains between $37,170 and $44,000 on June 25. Therefore, it offers protection both from an 8.5% move in either direction.

To achieve this, one needs to buy 2 BTC worth of the $36,000 put, sell 3.33 BTC worth of the $40,000 put in addition to buying 1.33 BTC of the $46,000 put. Each contract is maturing on June 25.

The Christmas tree spread with puts is a low-risk strategy

With less than 11 days left before the June 25 expiry, it is reasonable to assume that there is a good probability that the market stays within this range. However, this strategy offers a 0.062 BTC ($2,515 at $40,570) maximum loss in case of a surprise move.

Profit-wise, the strategy can yield a 0.1375 BTC ($5,500) gain at $40,000.

Therefore, it seems like a smart choice for an investor that expects the current uptick in bullish momentum to continue. It is worth noting that most derivative exchanges offer options trading from as little as 0.10 BTC.
