What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “The broader crypto market has come under intense selling pressure in the past 24 hours, reacting to the news that the FTX contagion had impacted Genesis. Bitcoin slipped below $16,000, suggesting the lack of demand from the bulls. If the price of BTC closes below the $16,000 level today, we could see a retest of the vital support at $15,588 and then towards $12,200. But, if BTC closes above $16,229, bulls might attempt to push it towards the $17,000 area by the end of this week. Until the uncertainty around the market settles down, we may see a sustained recovery in the crypto prices”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The current price of Bitcoin is $16,156 and the 24-hour trading volume is $31 billion. Bitcoin is down more than 2 percent in the last 24 hours. Bitcoin is gaining immediate technical support near the $15,850 level. A close of the candles above this level indicates the possibility of a bullish reversal. Bitcoin continued to trade sideways during the European session, but the overall trading trend remained positive above the triple bottom support area at $15,800. The price action comes amid fears that Grayscale, one of the largest crypto firms, may be insolvent.”

Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The crypto market continues to slide as the FTX situation is still evolving. Bitcoin was sitting on a wafer-thin support and got rejected at the $16,000 mark to find a lower support level. Ethereum also found a lower support level at $1,000 after slipping by 1.77 percent. Recent developments at Genesis global may have an impact on investor sentiments in the coming weeks. Strong regulations and strict investor protection measures are the need of the hour and will help in boosting investor confidence in the long term.”
