New Delhi: Crypto tokens were trading lower on Monday after a sharp fall seen over the weekend. The total crypto market cap slipped below the $1 trillion mark again as the US Fed vowed to continue the monetary hawkishness adopted earlier this year.

Bitcoin fell below $20,000 on Sunday as part of a wider cryptocurrency-market retreat, amid concern about the Federal Reserve’s rate-hike path, Reuters reported.

Barring BNB, all other top tokens were trading in the red on Monday. Avalanche plunged as much as 10 per cent, whereas Polygon tumbled 5 per cent. XRP and Cardano declined 4 per cent each.

The global cryptocurrency market cap was trading lower at the $951.77 billion mark, falling as much as 2 per cent in the last 24 hours. However, the total trading volume dropped about 17 per cent close to $54.09 billion.
