After a prolonged dry spell, the cryptocurrency market has rallied in the last 24 hours. This helped to boost the cap trading above $1 trillion. The market for popular crypto tokens such as Bitcoin and Ethereum has been positive, with a surge of as high as 8 percent in the last 24 hours. The total cryptocurrency trading volume over the past 24 hours was $81.3 million. Experts predict that this rally won’t last but that the trend will slowly recover over the coming months. Investors can take a break, at least for the moment.
Although traders are celebrating the BTC price’s surge of 7% to $21,800 analysts believe that the macro downtrend will continue for the foreseeable future. Markets are enjoying a green day against a backdrop of rising US jobless claims, which Jamie Cox, managing director at Harris Financial Group, believes could indicate that wages have reached a peak. Market analysts believe that if this trend continues, financial conditions could become “strained enough for the Federal Reserve to reduce rate hikes”. Analysis of activity on Bitcoin shows that all speculative businesses and market tourists have been removed from the asset. This means that it is mainly long-term investors that are keeping Bitcoin.
Detail of Ether losses: Since December 2020, investors have secured just over 13,000,000 ETH in the Ethereum 2.0 Smart Contract. Unfavourable technical and macro indicators will cause ETH to lose more traction. The weekly average of 32 ETH deposits in Ethereum2.0 has dropped to 122 per days, compared with 500 to 1,000 per daily in 2021. This is a sign of investors’ reluctance in locking in their ETH holdings during a bear market. The main threat to ETH prices remains macro risks, namely the Federal Reserve’s potential July 75 basis point rate increase. Ethereum’s penultimate merger test has been completed on the Sepolia public testingnet. This will pave the way to the Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. Although the test was generally deemed successful, there were some issues. In the coming weeks, the final test of the fusion will be performed on the Goerli network before official fusion can take place on Ethereum mainnet.
The U.S. Treasury Department provided President Joe Biden with a framework to enable crypto collaboration between U.S. government agencies and their counterparts overseas. The framework was created to promote the development of digital assets, while also respecting the fundamental democratic principle of the United States, “Values”, and to ensure stability and security in the global financial system. The Indian crypto market is under tremendous pressure. The adverse impact of the recently implemented one percent TDS rule by the government has led to cryptocurrency trading in India being hampered by the current global macro environment. The fact that every cryptocurrency transaction is now taxable means that traders are less inclined to trade. This has resulted in a decline in average trading volume. Experts believe that the dominant market pause is coming to an end.
