What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin is presently trading near the $38,000 level, possibly due to MicroStrategy’s (MSTR) acquisition of nearly 16,130 BTC, valued at approximately $608 million in November. This development has instilled a positive sentiment among market participants, leading to an upward push in prices and fostering a bullish market atmosphere. Meanwhile, the US SEC has requested public comments on Fidelity’s spot Ether ETF application. Ethereum, on the other hand, remains range-bound, fluctuating between the $2,000 and $2,100 levels.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Lead, CoinSwitch Ventures, said, “After ending November with gains of 10 percent, Bitcoin (BTC, +0.5 percent) has been trading rangebound since yesterday. The buying pressure on BTC continues to surpass the selling pressure, suggesting that investors’ confidence is sustained and optimistic. Additionally, institutional participation continues to rise, with the latest being MicroStrategy’s 10 percent increase of its BTC holding, translating into approx. $600 million worth of BTC. MicroStrategy’s total BTC holdings include over 174k BTCs worth over $5.2 billion. While key narratives involving the suspected approval of spot BTC ETF applications in the pipeline are sustaining investor sentiments, any new developments within the space can determine BTC’s future performance.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “US Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo issued a strong warning to cryptocurrency firms, stressing the need to curtail illicit financial activities for national security. The Biden administration is seeking to strengthen legislative authority to monitor crypto exchanges. Regulatory focus is intensifying following sanctions on the Gaza-based crypto exchange and the resignation of Binance’s CEO over anti-money laundering violations. Meanwhile, “Rich Dad Poor Dad” author Robert Kiyosaki supports Bitcoin ETFs amid fears of a global economic downturn and criticising fiat currency strategies.

Bitcoin shows a 0.51 percent uptick at $37,911, facing resistance at $38,610, $39,250 and $39,800. Key support levels: $36,935, $36,375 and $35,740. Technical indicators suggest a cautious upside with a potential upside move if the ascending channel pattern holds.”
