Cryptocurrencies continued their rise, led by Bitcoin, which settled above the $23,000 level and is close to the $24,000 level in recent trading. This is after a violent wave of losses, after announcing the collapse of a number of famous platforms.
According to Arabiya.net, these hikes coincide with the interest rate hike approved by the US Central Bank.
With the beginning of this year, the cryptocurrency market was able to recover some of the losses it suffered during the past year, which, according to Al Arabiya.net statistics, exceeded about $2.3 trillion. The market faced tough pressure after the US Federal Reserve pursued an aggressive policy of raising interest rates, which greatly harmed the crypto market.
