What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “This morning, Bitcoin saw a slight dip, dropping from $25,000 to $24,000. Despite this, the BTC has maintained its weekly gains, indicating continued buyer activity. If buyers push the price back up to $25,250, there is no major resistance until  $31,000.

The support level for BTC currently sits at $23,800. Ethereum has followed a similar pattern, with its current trading near its resistance level of $1,700. Breaking through this could lead to an uptrend soon.”

WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “Bitcoin has seen a slight dip compared to the previous day because the US observed a President’s Day. Similarly, Ether has also been trading low in the past 24 hours for the same reason.” Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The BTC/USD pair had limited trading activity on Sunday, hovering between $24,400 and $25,250. A potential breach of the $25,250 resistance level could see Bitcoin rise towards $26,000 or $26,450, but a break below $23,300 could lead to a further decline towards $22,850.”

Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take, “Bitcoin (BTC) has recently made multiple attempts to break through the significant resistance level of $26,000, but has been met with consistent retracements. However, despite this, certain sub-sectors within the cryptocurrency market have continued to perform strongly over the weekend, indicating the emergence of notable outperformance trends.”

Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “It’s a great start for the week as Bitcoin is ready to test the crucial $25,000 mark. BTC is up by almost 12 percent in just seven days while the second largest digital asset Ethereum is up by over 10 percent during the same period.

If Bitcoin finds strong support at the $24,000 level then it will provide much-needed momentum for BTC to test $30,000 in near future. Coinbase results and Hong Kong’s new licensing regime for VASPs will have a significant impact on the market in the coming weeks.”
