What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin fell by 1.27 percent over the past 24 hours as investors reacted to Genesis suspending their withdrawals in the wake of the FTX collapse. BTC is currently trading below the $16,700 level. Even though BTC rose on Tuesday, reacting to the latest inflation news, it could not sustain the gains. If BTC remains below the $17,622 level, it may increase the prospect of a break below the $15,588 zone.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Ethereum price exchanges hands at $1,212 after succumbing to selling pressure at $1,350. The push for $1,070 support followed Binance’s newly announced Industry Recovery Fund. After UK Inflation Data Is Released. which returned higher than expected. Most altcoins in the market have also followed suit as traders remain in wait-and-see mode. Bitcoin is currently trading at $16,740 after opening the day at $16,886. BTC has fluctuated between $16,761 and $17,002 over the past 24 hours as the recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine has depressed prices.”
weTrade founder Prashant Kumar offered his take on the market scenario as well, “The global crypto market cap saw an approximately 2 percent decline over the past day. Key coins including Ethereum and Bitcoin continue to hold their support levels of $1,200 and $16,000, respectively, after the FTX crash. We have seen that FTX customers in the US are protected and international ones are not as the US has some regulations in place. This shows that a healthy set of regulations go a long way in protecting consumer interests.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The crypto assets are facing some heat after the recent developments at the lending vertical of crypto investment bank Genesis global. Bitcoin is still holding above the $16,000 mark and Ethereum is holding strong at the $12,000 support level. The United Kingdom reported higher-than-expected inflation numbers, the highest in 41 years, which will have an impact on investor sentiment in the near future.”
