What Crypto Exchanges Say About the Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live: “Bitcoin is seeing a surge in take-profit and sell orders, leading to widespread market sell-offs following its recent peak of $44,700. Currently, the market is witnessing a fight for dominance between bulls and bears. A bullish move beyond the $44,700 resistance could suggest a continuation of the uptrend, while a drop lower could find support at the $40,600 level. At the same time, Ethereum has mirrored Bitcoin's move, posting a 4 percent drop in the last 24 hours as major holders make profits.”

Parth Chaturvedi, investment leader at CoinSwitch Ventures, said: “The week started with corrections within the crypto market. According to CoinGecko data, the top 10 M.Cap cryptocurrencies. They are currently trading in the red. Most of the losses, however, occurred around 6 am IST onwards. This could be the result of liquidations of more than $335 million in the last 12 hours, with $300 million in long positions, according to data from Coinglass. In terms of specific blockchain network action, Chainlink's expanded crypto staking program raised over $632 million in just six hours of the early access period last Friday; This also caused LINK to rise. At the same time, Stabelcoin issuer Tether froze 41 wallets on Saturday as a precautionary measure. These wallets were held by individuals listed on the Office of Foreign Assets Control's (OFAC) List of Specially Designated Nationals (SDN).

The CoinDCX research team told ABP Live: “Over the weekend, the cryptocurrency market maintained a calm atmosphere, with some bullish moves in altcoins. However, as the new week began, a sudden drop occurred on Monday: BTC plunged more than 7 percent, briefly falling below $40,500 and touching the daily 20 EMA. It quickly recovered to $42,500. At the same time, ETH saw an 8 percent drop but managed a partial recovery above $2,250. The abrupt market move appears to be more of a correction or profit booking, considering BTC's eight consecutive weekly green candle closes.”
