What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Most cryptocurrencies traded sideways in the past 24 hours after the Federal Reserve decided to increase the interest rate. For the past few days, Bitcoin has been changing hands above the $20,000 level. If bulls lose this key support level, we might see a bearish trend by the weekend. The second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, has lost the $1,550 level to the bears. If Ethereum falls to the $1,500 level today, it may take ETH to the $1,450 zone soon. However, if the crypto closes above the $1,550 level, the next resistance would be $1,600.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “ADA extended its leg further down and tested support at $0.3810. The smart contract token is now trading at $0.3910 as traders look for short-term buy orders at $0.4100. XRP remains one of the best-performing top-100 coins over the past 90 days, rising around 20.7 per cent during that time. The current price of Terra Classic is $0.000221 with a 24-hour trading volume of $314 million. Terra Classic is down more than 8% in the last 24 hours. The significant $18,000 support level could come into play again. However, it may not be reliable as it has already been tested several times recently and should be weakened considerably as a result.”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “Social media developments seem to be affecting the performance of coins. Dogecoin sank by approximately 10 per cent after the rumours of Twitter pausing their plans to build a crypto wallet started doing the rounds. The memecoin had doubled in the last week. Meanwhile, with Meta’s announcement to launch an NFT marketplace, Web3 tokens saw some upward movement. Overall the global crypto market cap remained stable with minor changes. Bitcoin and Ethereum both continued to hold onto their resistance levels of $20,000 and $1,500.”
