What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “On Tuesday, Bitcoin and Ethereum continued to trade in a narrow range as investors await the US Federal Reserve’s decision and India’s Union Budget today. BTC was seen trading at the $23,100 mark, with a slight increase of 1.5 percent in the past 24 hours, recovering from a minor dip and eyeing its next target. Despite a lack of significant profits over the past week, BTC is holding steady. Meanwhile, Ethereum was trading at the $1,580 level and showed signs of improvement after bouncing back from its earlier lows. The next challenge for ETH would be to reach the $1,600 level.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “The price of Bitcoin is currently $23,158, with a market cap of $22 billion and a market cap of $445 billion. Bitcoin price may drop to $22,600 or $22,350 if the $23,000 support level is broken. Investing in buying positions above $23,000 is recommended with a target price of $23,550 or $24,000. Dogecoin supporters continue to aim for a medium to long-term price of $1.”
