Today's data showed that Cryptocurrency market The global has also fallen by 2.32% in the past 24 hours with a total market capitalization of $1.80 trillion, as data indicated that bitcoin reserves on exchanges continue to dwindle and are actually at a record low.

What is the reason for the decline of Bitcoin at the moment?


Many analysts believe that the market decline comes in conjunction with the hawkish statements of Federal Reserve Chairman “Jerome Powell” and the intention of the US Central Bank to be aggressive to tackle inflation, these measures pushed all major cryptocurrencies to lose their value, as the top 10 tokens were traded in the color the Red.

One analyst says the risks of rising borrowing costs and a possible economic recession make safe havens an attractive bet and thus investors are staying away from risky assets, especially after the hawkish comment from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has weighed on crypto markets, and the Fed is expected to be assertive. Proactively address rising inflationary numbers.

The report highlights that Ethereum outperformed Bitcoin in total gains globally at $76.3 billion to $74.7 billion.

As a base currency, while most countries follow this pattern, there are some notable exceptions. The company said in its report that Japan, for example, had a much higher share of Bitcoin's gains of less than $4.0 billion compared to just $790 million in Ethereum's gains. .
