Bitcoin Price Holds Steady Near $23K as Investors Weigh Their Next Steps

The value of the biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization decreased lately by around 0.5% points in the previous day. Due to soaring investor confidence that inflation is declining without sending the U.S. economy into recession, the price of Bitcoin has increased by nearly 40% this year. After briefly crossing the $24,000 mark last week, unexpectedly positive jobs data sparked new worries on both counts and drove crypto assets below $23,000 over the weekend.

Ether (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market value, has increased by 1.3% to trade at $1,640. The biggest loss among the top 10 non-stablecoin cryptocurrencies was suffered by Solana, which fell 4.27% to $23 and lost 8.03% during the previous week. Matic from Polygon fell 3.69% to $1.20 while rising 3.78% for the week. In another development, Aptos has fallen 22% since its all-time high hit on January 26th.

“The overall amount of crypto discussions occurring on social platforms remains high after peaking the week of Dec. 14, 2022. Despite Bitcoin still being -66% from its Nov. 2021 All Time High, the increasing interest in cryptocurrency is quite evident”, Santiment reported.
