What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin has remained steady above the $27,000 mark in the last 24 hours, experiencing a modest 1 percent increase.During this time, investors might have evaluated the latest developments surrounding the US debt ceiling.
Over the past two weeks, BTC has been traded between $26,500 to $27,500, reflecting uncertainties in the US macroeconomic landscape.While Bitcoin’s value has declined by 8 percent this month, it has witnessed a 62 percent increase since the beginning of the year.Conversely, Ethereum has surpassed Bitcoin’s performance, exhibiting a 2 percent gain, and is presently valued at around $1,830.”
CoinSwitch investment lead Parth Chaturvedi offered his take, “Crypto markets are trading slightly higher in the last 24 hours.Global crypto market capitalisation is at $1.18 trillion, up around 1.9 percent since yesterday.
The crypto fear and greed index remains in the neutral zone with 50 points, up 1 point.Investor sentiment continues to be cautious in the backdrop of the US debt ceiling discussions.BTC is up 1.5 percent since yesterday and remains around $27,000.It is currently trading in one of the narrowest ranges in the past three years.
ETH is also trading in the green, up around 2.2 percent and over $1,800.In parallel, another crypto project — STEPN — has been added to the Apple ecosystem.Last week saw Axie Infinity’s rollout on the Apple App Store.”
WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “Bitcoin’s upcoming halving has experts predicting a bullish phase in the market.Bitcoin maximalists have termed this phase as decisive for its next run.
Regulatory concerns continue in the market.
However, the EU seems to be moving rapidly towards drafting policies for operations of VDAs.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The current price of Bitcoin is $27,000 with a 24-hour trading volume of $9.6 billion.Bitcoin holds the top position on CoinMarketCap and boasts a market capitalization of $520 billion.With a triple bottom pattern at $26,600, an upside reversal with a target of $27,200 seems likely.Resistance at $27,200 and support at $26,600 are seen on the 4-hour chart, with the 50-day EMA reinforcing the $26,700 support level.A watch for a break above $26,600 is key and could lead to an upward move towards $27,200 and $27,500.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap witnessed a jump of over 2 percent to touch $1.14 trillion with crypto heavyweights like BTC and ETH leading the effort.
Investors across the globe are closely watching the debt ceiling development which will directly impact the liquidity in the market.The market momentum is slow but consistent and BTC is well within the range to test the $30,000 mark in the coming weeks if macroeconomic factors turn favourable.”
CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “Crypto markets declined by 0.5 percent over the weekend, with the total market cap standing at $1.12 trillion.Bitcoin, the leading digital currency, slipped below the $27,000 mark, just before US President Joe Biden will be discussing the debt ceiling today.Over the past month, Bitcoin has been mostly in a consolidation phase, experiencing a mere 2 percent decline while managing to hold its value.On a positive sign, the rise in BTC social dominance, often indicative of fear in the market, raises the probability of a rebound.
Furthermore, the heightened discussion surrounding Bitcoin following its price slump below $27,000 can be viewed as a positive sign for a potential pullback.”
