Crypto Prices Today

The crypto prices today have witnessed notable gains over the weekend, suggesting that investors are again putting their bets on the digital asset space. Meanwhile, according to experts, the recent rally in the crypto prices could be due to the recent dovish remarks from the Fed officials.


In a Friday speech, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell resisted market expectations for immediate aggressive interest rate cuts, emphasizing it’s premature to declare victory over inflation. However, despite recent positive price indicators, Powell affirmed the Federal Open Market Committee’s commitment to maintaining restrictive policy until convinced that inflation is securely returning to the 2% target.


In individual crypto prices, the Bitcoin price experienced gains of 1.62% over the last 24 hours and traded at $38,807.70.
