Three Fed moves hit cryptocurrencies


Inflows of funds are needed for Bitcoin, which is trying to hold back $ 20,000, and the $ 890 billion market to grow. However, the fact that the Fed will continue to raise interest rates has been a serious concern for investors.

Three Fed moves hit cryptocurrencies

Crypto Although money markets are looking for direction after the US Federal Reserve (Fed) hike in the interest rate of 75 basis points on Wednesday, this effort is failing as the possibility of a US recession is on the table. The Fed’s action against rising inflation, by raising the policy rate three times this year, has had a more negative impact on cryptocurrencies than stocks and commodities.


While the end of the abundant monetary period has reduced investors’ risk appetite, Bitcoin, which started the year at $ 46,000, was at $ 40,000 557 on March 17, when the first interest rate hike took place. When the second discount came in May, it saw $ 37,660. Then, with the effect of the Moon case, the decline accelerated. This week, the Fed’s hike in interest rates of 75 basis points triggered a further depreciation in the price of Bitcoin. Therefore, Bitcoin has been posting losses of 30 percent since last week. Ethereum, whose weekly losses hit 40 percent, dropped to the $ 1,000 limit.

They left offended

Noting that most people have left the market with embarrassment or loss of money, analysts say that continuing interest rate hikes increase anxiety in the market. Investors fear cryptocurrency markets will be impacted by the Fed’s plan to hike rates three more times by the end of the year, to 3.4%.
