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, Bitcoin has experienced a slight increase and is now trading at approximately $27,800 as the market prepares for a significant week of US economic data. Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency, still trades above $1,800, with traders aiming for a breakout above the crucial resistance level. Although ETH attempted to reach $1,825, the momentum has since subsided. Conversely, DOGE has seen a surge of more than 26 per cent in the last 24 hours, and after Twitter changed its bird logo to a DOGE picture, it has become the seventh largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalisation.”
WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “Bitcoin fluctuated slightly over the past 24 hours while investors made sense of unflattering, but always interesting information. Despite a banking meltdown and generally favourable conditions for digital assets, BTC has maintained its position since mid-March. The US Federal Reserve’s injection of new money into the economy has increased investor liquidity for stocks and certain cryptos, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, which are considered safer options. On WazirX, Celo (CELO) and Swipe (SWIPE) have been the top gainers in the last 24 hours.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap jumped by 1.18 percent and is currently hovering around the $1.17 trillion mark. BTC and ETH remained flat with a marginal jump in their value and are currently exchanging hands at $27,885.28 and $1,808.92, respectively. Newsmaker of the day is DOGE, the 8th largest crypto by market cap, which surged by 25 percent in just 24 hours after Twitter changed its logo to the DOGE icon. Elon Musk has been a staunch supporter of the meme coin and talks about DOGE finding a mass use case on the Twitter platform have been doing rounds since then.”
