What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Ether has seen a recent increase in value, reaching a two-month high before falling slightly. It is currently trading at around $1,550, roughly the same as the previous day. Other major cryptocurrencies have experienced mixed results, with some rising slightly and others experiencing a drop in value. The native token of the crypto exchange FTX, FTT, has seen a significant increase of 35 percent and is currently trading at just over $2. However, it should be noted that seven months ago, FTT was trading at over $35. Meanwhile, SOL has dropped 5 percent. On the other hand, the native token of the VR platform Decentraland, MANA, has increased by more than 16 percent.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The crypto winter may be coming to an end, as various indicators suggest. Bitcoin has broken above its 200-day moving average for the first time since December 2021, which could signal the start of a new bull market. Additionally, Bitcoin’s latest rally has sent it back above its Realized Price, meaning the average Bitcoin holder is now holding an unrealized profit.
Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take, “A lot of bullish macro developments are happening behind the obvious price actions. BlackRock CEO Larry Fink has shared his vision and appreciation for the tokenization of assets and financial products. This week will see a decent move/volatility around January 18 as US Producer Price Index (PPI) data will be published.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The crypto market continues to send strong signals of an early bull run as Bitcoin seems to have received firm support at the $21,000 level and could soon break $23,000 resistance. The second-largest crypto has also rallied over 18% in the past seven days and exchanged hands at $1,560. The markets are confident that Fed will end its hawkish stance and go easy on rate hikes which are creating strong support for digital assets.”
