What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin surged above the $44,500 level in the last 24 hours for the first time since January 12, due to increased accumulation from large holders. Immediate resistance for Bitcoin is at the $44,800 level, and surpassing this could initiate an increase, while support is at the $44,300 level in the event of a correction. Meanwhile, Ethereum also breached the $2,400 threshold for the first time in two weeks, with Dencun Upgrade going live yesterday on Holesky Testnet. The overall market looks bullish.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted, “BTC (+3.7%) broke through the upside and reached its highest price in almost one month as it reached near $44.7k during early hours today. The next significant resistance in BTC lies around the $45.6k mark which is another 2.5% away. Popular altcoin SOL (+5%) also saw a comeback as after Solana blockchain came for a five-hour halt a day back, the upside price uptrend was not impacted and the bulls were still able to take the price back above the psychological $100 mark.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “Bitcoin (BTC) soared to a four-week peak, surpassing $44,000, fueled by heightened accumulation by major holders and U.S. equity indices hitting new highs. The crypto, rallying from $42,700 to $44,300, marked its highest since Jan. 12, following the launch of bitcoin ETFs. Analysts suggest a reversal in miners’ selling pressure, countering recent BTC declines. Ethereum’s Ether (ETH) surged past $2,400 on renewed optimism surrounding spot ETFs, achieving a two-week high.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The Total Crypto market cap  has reached  $1.7T, a 3.41% increase from the last day. Bitcoin is leading this pump and has finally crossed the $44,000 level showing great strength. On, the other hand Ethereum is still lagging around $2400. This fresh demand and volume for Bitcoin could be attributed to the Bitcoin ETF craze and the positive sentiments around it. Over the next few weeks, Altcoins can see potential upside with good volume after a decrease in Bitcoin dominance.”

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “In the past 24 hours, the crypto market saw a significant surge of nearly 3%. BTC broke out of its consolidation phase in a smaller timeframe, reaching the upper level of its range at $44,500. This bullish move indicates potential for further upward momentum, with the next levels at $45,400 and $48,000. Altcoins also closed in the green, benefiting from BTC’s rally. ETH  broke out above its range high, currently holding above $2,450, which is a positive signal for ETH and related tokens. The next resistance levels for ETH are at $2,600-$2,700 locally, and the key level at $2,900.”
