The cryptocurrency sector is enjoying tailwinds today, after a federal court earlier ruled the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) should have approved Grayscale Investments' application to launch a spot Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF). In response, Coinbase Global Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) and Marathon Digital Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:MARA) are surging, last seen up 14.9% at $84.69 and 27.4% at $13.53, respectively. 

COIN is bouncing off support at its 80-day moving average, after cooling off from a July 14, one-year high of $114.43. The shares are today pacing for their biggest single-day percentage gain since July, and boast an impressive 140% year-to-date lead.

Meanwhile, Marathon Digital stock could very well reclaim support from its 20-day trendline, as it paces for its best day since January. Though cooling off from its 2023 peak, which came just shy of the $20 region, MARA still sports a 293.9% lead for the year.

Options traders aren't missing their opportunity to chime in. For COIN, 175,000 calls and 75,000 puts have exchanged hands -- triple the amount that is typically seen at this point.  New positions are being opening at the weekly 9/1 85-strike call, which is also the most active contract.
