What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Major cryptocurrencies declined in the past 24 hours ahead of the release of US GDP figures on Thursday and consumer sentiment data on Friday. Bitcoin is currently trading at the $22,500 level. The support now is at $22,450, and the resistance is at $22,600. On the other hand, Ethereum also slowed down and is trading at the $1,500 level. A potential breakout above the $1,600 level can increase the bulls’ confidence.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Bitcoin is currently facing resistance at $23,250 with support at $22,500. A fall below $22,500 may indicate a bearish correction to $21,500 or even $20,450. Technical indicators suggest a potential for bullish continuation, with an immediate resistance level at $23,250 and potential for upward movement to $23,900 and $25,150.”
Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take, “The regulatory environment for cryptocurrency is rapidly evolving, with many jurisdictions implementing stricter oversight measures. However, Europe is taking a more progressive yet nimble approach through the proposed MiCA (Market in crypto assets) legislation. This approach is indicative of the EU’s innovative and forward-thinking attitude, similar to that seen in previous technological cycles. As a developed nation, EU’s policy on cryptocurrency can serve as a valuable indicator of potential regulations in other countries, such as India. However, it should be noted that there may be significant variations due to demographic differences.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap shrunk by 3 percent but still holding strong above the crucial $1-trillion mark. The world’s largest digital asset, Bitcoin seems to have found strong support at the $22,000 level as the selling pressure has decreased owing to favourable macroeconomic factors. The market is expected to remain stable as investors are in a wait-and-watch mode for the next US Fed meeting in February.”
