What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin trades at the $69,000 level with profit booking by some players. However, the inflows into the spot Bitcoin ETFs shows that buying still continues. Even though BTC could clear the major barrier at $70,000 level, bulls could not push the price above the $73,777. The next support lies at the $68,500 level and the resistance lies at the $70,300 and then $71,500. On the other hand, Ethereum has outperformed Bitcoin by gaining 25% over the past seven days. If buyers retain the price above the $3,730 level, the next resistance is at the $4,100 level. Additionally, the U.S house approves the crypto FIT21 Bill with great democratic support. It is a significant move to establish regulatory clarity for digital assets markets.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted, “With the deadline of ETH ETF application due today, markets are rather silent for two days in a row now. While BTC is showing good support at 69k levels, 3.8k USD is acting as a resistance level for ETH which needs to be broken. US Exchange NASDAQ has submitted an updated filing for Blackrock’s proposed ETH ETF, which again gives us a signal towards the potential approval of the ETF with several other exchanges also doing the same.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “Bitcoin seems ready for another upward trajectory, despite a minor pullback from the $70,000 level, which remains a significant point of resistance. Surpassing this level could propel Bitcoin to $72,000 with a bullish outlook. The current triangle pattern suggests potential for new highs. However, bears are firmly resisting, making it crucial for Bitcoin to overcome and maintain levels above $70,000. Successfully doing so would pave the way for a new all-time high above $80,000 by mid-2024.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “During the April 30 and May 1 FOMC meetings, Federal Reserve officials expressed concern about persistent inflation, which kept the short-term lending rate at 5.25% to 5.5%. The decision reflects continued inflationary pressures despite a slight decline in April’s consumer price index to an annualised 3.4%. With consumer sentiment surveys suggesting rising inflation concerns, officials are cautious about cutting rates, emphasising patience and positive data for several months before considering a cut. Bitcoin (BTC/USD) is trading at $69,553, up 0.63%. Key resistance levels are at $72,030, $73,734 and $75,480, while support levels are at $67,549, $65,949 and $63,901. Bitcoin remains bullish above $69,675, but a break below could trigger a decline.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap is hovering around the $2.59 trillion mark which is a slight increase over the last day. BTC and ETH are trading at $$69,507.76 and $3,785.60 respectively which is a marginal jump from the previous day. ETH has shown remarkable growth of over 25% in just 7 days which is much higher than BTC growth of over 5% during the same period. The euphoria around Ethereum ETF approval is driving its price north and with big wigs like Blackrock and Grayscale in the fray, Ethereum may continue its growth momentum in the coming weeks.”
