Santiment (@santimentfeed), the blockchain analytics firm, tweeted yesterday that an overreaction from traders to the recent bloodbath in the crypto market may be a bullish sign.
The tweet followed the recent interest rate hike which was announced by the Fed yesterday. According to the tweet, there was speculation last week “that the Fed could actually cut interest rates.”
However, the Fed’s Jerome Powell announced that the interest rate would be raised by 25 basis points. The tweet added that although the rise in interest rates was not a significant one, it was still enough to push down prices in the crypto and equity markets. There has also been a 2.81% increase in the total trading volume in the crypto market – taking the total to $68.05 billion.
At press time, CoinMarketCap shows that the global crypto market cap has dropped 2.15% over the last 24 hours. As a result, the total market cap for the crypto market is currently estimated to be $1.16 trillion.
