At the time of writing, the value of Bitcoin stood at $34,295 (roughly Rs. 28.5 lakh). Talking to Gadgets 360, the CoinDCX research team said that this week carries significant weight for the crypto market due to various macro events lined up in the US that includes the FOMC meeting, the monthly unemployment rate announcement, refreshed list of job openings, and the US non-farm Employment Change – all of which can introduce volatility to the crypto market.
Ethereum minted a small profit of 0.08 percent on Monday. This brings the value of ETH to stand at $1,780 (roughly Rs. 1.48 lakh).
“There’s a noticeable divide in opinions regarding the future of Bitcoin, with some anticipating a potential breakthrough past the $35,000 (roughly Rs. 29 lakh) resistance level, while others foresee a looming price correction. The situation is equally intriguing in the world of Ethereum. The prospect of Ethereum surpassing the $1,800 (roughly Rs. 1.4 lakh) level has sparked hopes of a significant rally, igniting optimism among investors. Over the weekend, signs of recovery began to emerge in the market as prices of tokens went up after a brief one-day correction,” Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX told Gadgets360.
