Noticeable changes in the cryptocurrency market are associated with two factors. The first is the hotly anticipated approval of a a spot Bitcoin exchange traded fund, or ETF, which is an open-ended fund with a more dynamic share issuance system allowing institutional investors to enter the market. The second is the situation with U.S. Federal Reserve interest rates, which currently stand at 5.25%-5.5%. When the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, it generally signals a tightening of monetary policy. Higher interest rates can reduce liquidity in the market, making riskier assets like Bitcoin less attractive.
