What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Edul Patel, the CEO and Co-Founder of crypto exchange Mudrex, told ABP Live, “Bitcoin has bounced off the $20,000 mark, after bulls pushing the coin up. If buyers can hold BTC at the current level, we might see it testing the $21,000 level soon. The second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum witnessed a rise of nearly 10 perfect outperforming BTC after its Shadow Fork 9 went live taking the project one step ahead toward the merge.”
Commenting on the crypto market scenario, Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and Co-Founder of crypto exchange Unocoin told ABP Live, “After a five-day long bear market, Thursday saw some recovery. While the gain in the prices of major coins like Bitcoin stood at 4 percent during the first half, the same lost its lust by evening and ended the day with a mere 1 percent gain. Interestingly, the privacy coins like Monero saw a 5 percent increase in prices, and the metaverse-related tokens like MANA plunged by 3 percent. There was no clear noticeable pattern among top coins and most of them ended in green by the end of the day.”
Tushar Gandotra, Founder and CEO of crypto exchange FiEx, told ABP Live, “In the short term, I believe the market is going to move sideways. Many meme coins will come and a lot of pump and dump is going to take place in the coming times. The situation is very similar to the market in 2018.”
