Talking about the current crypto market trend, Edul Patel Co-Founder and CEO of crypto investment platform Mudrex, said, ”The crypto market has been witnessing a decline as the Federal Reserve has been increasing the interest rates to combat inflation over the past few months. Bitcoin, Ethereum, and most cryptocurrencies suffered losses over the weekend after a broad sell-off following the data showing US inflation hitting a 40-year high.
