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 hovered above the $22,000 level, gaining 5 percent over the previous day. If the price can fix at that level, we may see a further upward move. However, on the other side, Ethereum outperformed the crypto market by gaining nearly 12 percent as market participants are keen on the Merge ahead. This peak comes following Ethereum’s six consecutive days of higher highs taking the price above the $1,500 level showing great strength and recovery of the asset. If bulls can sustain the momentum, Ethereum could reach the $2,000 mark. If not, we can expect a retracement.”
Commenting on the crypto market scenario, Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and Co-Founder of crypto exchange Unocoin told ABP Live, “The price recovery continued on Monday and the combined effect of one week of price action has ended up in over 10-percent green for most of the coins and tokens. The tokens which are meant to help with more number of transactions on the blockchains have seen as much as a 30 percent recovery within the last week since the prices started recovering. The tokens like Ether and Cardano saw a price increase of up to 10 percent in just the last 24 hours. Interestingly we have been seeing a bullish wedge pattern in the candle stick graphs for three days”
Tushar Gandotra, Founder and CEO of crypto exchange FiEx, told ABP Live, “MATIC and SOL are showing potential in the short term. They have been making a higher high and are able to manage to break the resistance and move upwards. The market structure has changed and the volumes have increased. It’s a positive sign in these times.”
