What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin has experienced a surge despite the larger-than-expected decline in US job vacancies on Tuesday. BTC is currently trading up nearly 3 per cent in the past day and hovering around the $28,600 mark. Meanwhile, Ethereum has reached an 8-month high, trading above the $1,900 level. ETH must maintain its current level as a support and potentially consolidate above $1,900. Nevertheless, investors must keep a close watch on the upcoming nonfarm payroll data for March, which will offer further insight into the health of the labour market.”
WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “Amid banking uncertainties, Bitcoin traded over $28,000 as investors cautiously eyed a slight dip in the job market. Experts suggest it’s at the upper end of its recent range, and traders are waiting to see its response to the banking crisis for potential benefits. On the other hand, Ether outperformed BTC and was trading above $1,900 for the first time since August last year. On WazirX, Icon (ICX) and 0x Protocol (ZRX) have been the top gainers in the last 24 hours.”
