Bitcoin increases nearly 5% over $28,000 as investors shrug off regulatory crackdowns

March 30, 2023: On Wednesday, Bitcoin ascended as investors shrugged off initial fears about what is surrounding U.S. regulators’ crackdowns on industry firms and became willing to take some risk.

According to Coin Gecko data, the world’s significant cryptocurrency surged 5% in the previous 24 hours to $28,474. Bitcoin has retaken the $28,000 level after decreasing below it following news of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission FTC’s lawsuit regarding Binance.

Ether, the next-biggest digital coin, increased over 6% to $1,816.10.

Bitcoin has steadily risen this year after a brutal 2022 that saw the collapses of major crypto exchanges and sharp decreases in prices. Investors have taken a little comfort from the thought of reversing the U.S. Federal Reserve’s interest price hiking moves, which put pressure on risk assets such as stocks.

However, it comes from a broad increase in U.S. stocks. Bitcoin has been known to go after movements in the equity business, with investors treating it as more of a traditional risk asset.

Nasdaq futures increased 100 points, or 0.9%, Wednesday forenoon.

U.S. regulators have recently sharpened their crackdown on crypto firms, with the CFTC suing Binance and its co-founder Changpeng Zhao for breaking trading rules by courting customers in the U.S. without authorization.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has threatened legal action against Coinbase for violating securities laws.

The banking crisis lending program called the Bank Term Funding Program, or BTFP, aims to help banks meet their obligations to depositors.

Proponents of bitcoin say it can function as a store of value in times of economic distress and money people can have without needing a bank account.

Therefore, it is incredibly volatile and has been known to swing or go down 10% in hours.
