Per the data, long-term holders of Bitcoin are going to hold onto their crypto for the next few years.
The firm tweeted:

Besides the latest uptick in profitability, option volume and open interest measured a significant rise during the first two weeks of October 2021. The firm noted:
Open interest is up an incredible +107% ($6.3B) since the September lows. Bitcoin option volume is similarly elevated, peaking at $1.5B per day last week. The last time option trade volume was this high was on three occasions from March through to May this year.
