What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Over the past 24 hours, many cryptocurrencies have seen a rise in value due to news of the government’s plan to protect all depositors of Silicon Valley Bank. As a result, Bitcoin has surged past the $22,000 mark after hitting its lowest point since January. Within a day, the cryptocurrency has gained nearly 10 percent. Ethereum has also followed a similar trajectory and is trading above the $1,600 level.”

WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon said, “Bitcoin has seen a modest increase over the last 24 hours after the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and USDC issuer, Circle announced its support to protect Silicon Valley Bank investors. Large-scale borrowing by small banks in the US, which are the major partners of tech companies, is experiencing high volatility as a domino effect. With funding figures not looking up anytime soon, more tech startups are expected to withdraw their existing reserves further impacting the market. This might also affect Crypto prices in the coming weeks.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “Bitcoin has a price target of $18,400 with the possibility of visiting the $21,800 region before the expected decline. For Ethereum, a key support level remains at $1,423 and a break below this level could lead to a retest of last November’s lows. The key resistance to watch out for is around $1,460, which represents the February lows. MATIC is currently trading around $1.08, Solana around $17.99 and TRX around $0.05938.”

Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The crypto market cap is back above the $1 trillion mark and BTC has surged by over 8 percent in the last 24 hours and is trading above the $22,300 mark. ETH which follows the BTC trajectory jumped by over 7 percent during the same period. The positive mood of the market is mainly due to the federal regulators hinting towards recovering Silicon Valley Bank’s customer deposits. The news has uplifted investor sentiment with a promise of more liquidity in the market. The momentum will depend on the further regulatory recourse of SVB fallout.”
