The put/call ratio is calculated by dividing the number of put options by the number of call options. A ratio below 1 means there are more purchases than puts, indicating an upward trend.
A ratio above 1 means there are more put options than call options, indicating a bearish trend. A ratio close to 1 means the market is balanced or neutral.
This rate is 0.58 for Bitcoin and 0.55 for Ethereum. Accordingly, these rates indicate an upward trend for BTC and ETH. However, time will tell how these rates will affect the price.
