What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin reached a three-week high, rising above the $17,200 level as market participants continue to react ahead of the US inflation data which is to be released this week. This marked the highest point for BTC since mid-December. If the positive trend continues, the next resistance level for Bitcoin would be at $17,400, with a support level at $17,050.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Bitcoin and Ether prices rose this week. The increase in prices came on a day with lower-than-expected inflation expectations. Lower inflation expectations are good news for investors in these cryptocurrencies. Both Bitcoin and Ether prices rose further after the FOMC announcement.Bitcoin was up 1.5 percent and ether was up 4 percent on higher than average volume”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “After a day of big moves in the green, the cryptocurrency market on Tuesday showed some flat movement. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum held ground and maintained their position above $17,000 and $1,300, respectively. Other currencies including Cardano and Solana also saw big gains over the last week. The market has been reacting positively to the news of easing macroeconomic conditions due to which trading volume is also seeing a jump.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The overall crypto market remains stable with Bitcoin and Ether showing marginal jump after witnessing a strong upswing yesterday. Solana, which was caught in the FTX collapse, has received a new lease of life in 2023 with a mega rally of 42 percent in the past 7 days. The current favourable macroeconomic factors are boosting the value of dormant crypto assets and this may be a good sign for the crypto market in the long term.”
