What’s cooking in India
Indian crypto investors continued to be under stress, anticipating that the worst may not be over for the crypto market, which recorded one of the worst crashes in the history of digital assets in the past week and wiped off a few hundred crores from the Indian crypto market.
Bitcoin and Ethereum have fallen by almost 20 per cent in the last few days as the former tested $19,000 levels, whereas the latter breached the $1,000 mark, said WazirX Trade Desk.
“The reason behind this fall is mainly the recent hike in the interest rates by 0.75 percentage point,” it added. “The Federal Reserve launched its most aggressive anti-inflationary campaign, reducing the appeal of riskier assets.”
