Talking to Republic about the crypto market movement, Shubham Hudda, Senior Manager, CoinSwitch, said, “BTC  has been trading around $26,000, finding crucial support in the early $25,000 levels. Bitcoin dominance made a slight downtick and is currently lying around 49.27 per cent. ETH is trading above $1,600, after momentarily testing its support level at $1,6,00.”

BNB, the fourth largest crypto by market capitalisation, dipped to its 1 year low yesterday. However, it quickly bounced back and is currently trading around $213.

Crediting the recent crypto fall to the increased US Treasury yields, Sudeep Saxena, Co-Founder, Coingabbar said, “The anomalous performance of Bitcoin may be attributed to the pronounced upsurge in US Treasury yields, eliciting perturbations across more precarious market sectors. Concurrently, there is anticipation within the market for the forthcoming Jackson Hole symposium, where the discourse of Fed Chair Powell holds significance.”

One of the major upcoming events in crypto is the relaunch of Shiba Inu’s layer 2 blockchain—Shibarium. The blockchain had initially faced technical difficulties and halted its operations citing heavy usage. Developers are now certain the layer 2 solutions can handle the expected load and will go live very soon. Against the backdrop of this news, SHIB is up 3.03 per cent in the last 24 hours.

On the other hand, one of the major plays of current times remains with Coinbase’s layer 2 BASE, as more users continue to join the network. Optimism continues to trend, given BASE uses OP’s stack. OP is currently trading around $1.58.
