This increase in the Bitcoin futures trading volume can also be attributed to the fact that the Bitcoin halving event is getting closer and closer with less than 100 days remaining now.

The prices of Bitcoin usually have shown strong surges after halvings in the past, and therefore the current jump onto the Bitcoin bandwagon might be traders trying to make a profit from the halving.
