What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “In the last 24 hours, most cryptocurrencies experienced a surge in value following the release of January’s US Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, which reported a lower-than-expected inflation rate. Bitcoin recovered from recent lows and is presently traded above the $22,000 level, with its next resistance level at $22,260 and support level at $22,000.

In parallel, Ethereum also ascended above the $1,500 level in conjunction with Bitcoin. Despite the modest gains, the overall trend in the market is slightly bearish.”WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “The popularity of NFTs by Ordinals protocol, which enables non-fungible tokens to be appended to Bitcoin has contributed to the rise in activity on the network. Additionally, with the increase in the number of unspent transaction outputs (UTXOs) has indicated that besides large investors, small individual investors are engaging with Bitcoin at the moment.

These two factors combined have contributed to Bitcoin price in the last 24 hours. Besides this, the US SEC’s approach towards stablecoin has caused concerns among investors and the market as a whole. Overall, the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum saw an increase of 1.55 percent and 2.92 percent in the last 24 hours.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Bitcoin saw a slight price increase and is now trading around $22,000 after the 6.4 percent CPI data was announced. The PCE price index, the Federal Reserve’s preferred gauge of inflation, is due to be released on February 24 with the current annual inflation rate at a high of 6.5 percent.

Investors should monitor regulatory developments as increased scrutiny of stablecoin securitization could increase market volatility and uncertainty.”Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take, “The CPI marked in at a higher print of 6.4 instead of the expected 6.2 mark. The markets tumbled for a small time frame but saw a good turnaround, and BTC and multiple altcoins inched a little higher.

The market reaction is becoming very volatile, which may cool down a bit on the data end, but fundamentally the space is facing a lot of scrutiny and challenges. The next significant market-moving data is PCE index data which is scheduled to launch on February 24.”

Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The crypto market cap is up by 2.41 percent in the last 24 hours led by crypto heavyweights like Bitcoin and Ethereum. BTC is back above the $22,000 mark and ETH surged by 3.34 percent and exchanging hands at $1,548.

The crypto market is up despite the latest CPI data suggesting inflation numbers are higher than in January 2023. The crypto market will continue to respond sharply to macroeconomic factors in the coming weeks.”
