What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Most cryptocurrencies continued to surge following the better-than-expected US Consumer Confidence report despite the ongoing tension stemming from Binance. In the past 24 hours, the price of Bitcoin has risen above $29,000, and BTC bulls appear to be aiming for a fresh surge to reach the $30,000 resistance level. Although BTC has slightly dipped since then, it is presently trading at the $28,400 level. BTC’s price started a decent increase above the $27,500 level, gained pace, and was able to clear many hurdles near the $27,800 and $28,000 levels. Despite being 58% down from its all-time high, BTC has increased by 107% since its lowest cycle in January. Similarly, Ethereum also followed a comparable trend to BTC, rising above the $1,800 level and currently trading at the $1,700 level.”
WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “Crypto token prices beat the regulatory uncertainty in the US and surged to new levels with BTC reaching a new quarterly high since 2021. Ripple and Algorand prices increase with positive user sentiment. On WazirX, Swipe (SXP) and Cortex (CXTC) have been the top gainers in the last 24 hours. Crypto fundraising increased over the last week. Liquid staking tokens such as Lido see an increase in value with the upcoming Ethereum Shapella upgrade.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “BTC/USD may rise to $29,200 or $30,700 if it breaks the $28,950 resistance, but could find support at $26,600 or $25,200 in the downtrend. Bitcoin is currently trading at $28,254, up 5 per cent in 24 hours, with possible resistance at $28,900.”
Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take “BTC dominance saw a very slight pullback recently yet it’s trying to inch to higher levels and crossed the $29,000 mark followed by a slight relief. based on current macroeconomic condition, big catalysts will be needed for BTC to push past the next resistance levels.”
