What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin is trading around $67,000 following some profit-taking after reaching $71,000 on Wednesday. A significant development is the US SEC’s approval of applications from Nasdaq, CBOE, and NYSE to list ETFs linked to the price of Ether, potentially allowing these products to start trading later this year. Ethereum has surged over 30% in the past week. If the bulls can maintain the current price level, the next resistance points are at $3,900 and then $4,100.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Head of Investments, CoinSwitch Ventures, said “Yesterday, the SEC approved eight Ethereum ETFs, causing heightened price volatility in the crypto market. In the hour leading up to the approval, Ethereum (ETH) first dropped to $3,500 around the U.S. traditional market closing time. As unconfirmed reports of the approval began to surface, ETH touched nearly $3,900 before settling above $3,800 after the official confirmation. However, these ETFs are not yet cleared for trading but the issuers of the potential spot ETH ETFs includes BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale, VanEck, Franklin Templeton, Ark/21Shares, and Invesco/Galaxy.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin (BTC) is facing resistance at $70,000 after peaking at $71,957, up 13% from last week on strong inflows into Bitcoin spot ETFs and optimism for SEC approval of Ethereum spot ETFs. BlackRock’s IBIT has captured 94.86% of recent inflows, holding nearly 282,000 BTC and attracting 414 institutional investors. Ethereum ETFs in Hong Kong are also doing well and boosting the crypto market. Analyst Kaleo predicts that Bitcoin could reach $150,000 to $200,000. BTC is currently trading at $69,563, with key resistance at $72,030 and support at $67,549. Holding above $68,950 suggests a bullish outlook.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “The total crypto market cap value has reached a critical support level of $2.50 trillion, fueled by a surge in inflows over the past 24 hours. This positive momentum is largely attributed to the long-awaited approval of spot Ethereum ETFs by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). While investors wait for licensed ETF launches to begin accumulating funds, excitement ripples through the altcoin market. Optimists predict similar approvals for XRP and SOL ETFs in the near future. Ethereum itself has seen a staggering 28.97% increase in price over the past week. This enthusiasm is further amplified by speculation around which fund manager will launch the first Ethereum ETF. The approval is seen as a potential turning point, suggesting a more relaxed regulatory stance from the SEC on cryptocurrencies.”

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “In the last 24 hours, the market remained highly volatile ahead of the ETH ETF approval, with ETH and related coins saw significant fluctuations. The SEC’s approval of the ETH spot ETF brought stability to ETH’s price action, while some altcoins began to recover. This development is beneficial in the long run for tokens associated with ETH staking projects like LDO, ETH layer 2 solutions like OP and ARB, and other ETH-related tokens. ETH has continued to outperform BTC, which is a positive sign as ETH’s dominance rises. Key resistance levels for ETH are at $3,963 and $4,085. Funding rates among coins remain neutral, which is positive.”
