What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin is currently above the $25,600 mark, striving to breach the $26,000 resistance zone. However, Bitcoin’s attempts to surge past the $26,000 and $26,200 levels have fallen short. This pattern mirrors historical data, which reveals a consistent decline in Bitcoin’s price during the month of September for the past six years. Meanwhile, Ethereum has been trading range-bound between $1,600 and $1,700 over the past week. In a noteworthy development, asset management firms Ark Invest and 21Shares have submitted an application to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) seeking approval for a fund they plan to call Ark 21Shares Ethereum ETF. If granted the green light, this would represent the first-ever spot Ethereum ETF in the United States.”
Shubham Hudda, Senior Manager, CoinSwitch Markets Desk, said, “BTC’s price remained within a narrow range for another day, although for a very brief duration, BTC did trade below $25,500 and above $26,000 on Binance. The small dump and pump happened around the same time as the news broke out that a major tech investor Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest applied for a spot Ethereum ETF in the US. This marks the first such attempt in the United States to list such a fund which directly invests in the second largest digital asset in terms of market capitalization. ETH (-0.1 percent), however, also traded flat.”
