What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin hovered above the $48,000 threshold, reaching its highest level in 26 months over the weekend, driven by substantial net inflows into spot Bitcoin ETFs last week. A successful surge beyond $48,970 could propel the price to the $50,000 level, not witnessed since December 2021. Meanwhile, Ethereum reached $2,540, marking its highest point since January 19, and is presently consolidating around the $2,500 level, with resistance at $2,620 and support at $2,440.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Lead, CoinSwitch Ventures, said, “BTC has been registering an upward price action since last week, given the spot ETF momentum. The largest crypto by M.Cap is currently trading above $48k, as opposed to $42k on last Monday; a gain of over 13%. Unless this momentum continues to drive the price above $48.8k, we may see a downward correction. A recent post by Glassnode highlighted that on-chain indicators assessing BTC’s value show that we may have entered the initial stages of a bull market.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, noted, “The cryptocurrency market saw significant short liquidations, wiping out around $87 million in bearish bets, setting the stage for a potential longer-term rally. Rapid price movements, notably in BTC, ETH, and Dogecoin, triggered these liquidations. Bitcoin (BTC) gained 1.05% on Sunday, closing at $48,165, marking the seventh consecutive session of gains. With BTC inching closer to the $50,000 milestone, investor optimism remains high. BTC is currently overbought, with the 14-Daily RSI at 73.67. A breakout above $48,178 could push BTC toward $50,500, while a drop below $47,500 may signal bearish pressure toward $46,020.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin’s bullish trend continues as ETFs accumulate $10 billion in assets in just 20 sessions, led by BlackRock’s IBIT with $4 billion and Fidelity’s FBTC with more than $3.4 billion. However, Grayscale’s GBTC faced $6.3 billion in outflows last month. It begs the question: could Bitcoin hit $100,000 in the next two months with this ETF momentum? Bitcoin price is hovering around $42,585, most likely to break above $49,000, with key support at $47,680. Technical indicators favour a bullish outlook with an RSI around 77. Meanwhile, Bitcoin Minetrix lures investors with its stake-to-mine platform and raises over $10 million. Priced at $0.0134, BTCMTX tokens offer Bitcoin mining credits. Investors are rushing ahead of the price hike, targeting a target value of $11,556,753.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The crypto market continues the upward trend driven by increasing interest and adoption of Bitcoin Spot ETFs. Over the weekend, Bitcoin rose more than 6% in a day, marking resistance around $49,000 and closed above $48,000 today. Any breakout above $49,000 could push the price towards $50,000 and potentially towards the all-time high region above $60,000. Once Bitcoin dominance cools down, Ethereum and altcoins can also see a potential rapid jump in their market capitalisation.” 

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “Over the weekend, the crypto market remained fairly steady, with BTC holding strong above $48,000 and ETH staying above $2,500. BTC continued its upward momentum, gaining over 3% during the weekend. Key resistance levels for BTC are seen at $48,900 and $51,900, while support remains at $44,300. ETH closely mirrored BTC’s performance, with its resistance levels at $2,700 and $2,900, and support at $2,390.”
