The crypto market is currently on a downward trend: On Monday, Bitcoin fell below $ 40,000 for the first time since September 2021. In the meantime, the price has recovered somewhat and is around $ 42,000. But this is far from the record high of almost $ 69,000 last November.
Other crypto funds also dived early this week. For example, ether fell below the $ 3,000 mark for the first time since the beginning of October. Even the dogecoin meme currency fell to 14 cents. According to media reports, the reason for this is the monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve (Fed).
Overall, interest rate hikes are expected in the USA, so that the key interest rate should rise to between 0.75 and one percent by the end of the year. Due to the turnaround in interest rates, investors have turned away from cryptocurrencies. As a result, investors around the world have lost a lot of money. Are you one of them?

This is a Bitcoin:
The founder of Bitcoin is Satoshi Nakamoto. To this day it is not known exactly who Nakamoto is. The pseudonym could also be the name of several developers who are behind Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency was first outlined in a white paper on October 31, 2008 – shortly after the collapse of the US investment bank Lehman Brothers. Bitcoin is based on the idea of a currency that exists independently of states, central banks and monetary policy. In contrast to traditional currencies, Bitcoin does not have a central point that controls the means of payment. Instead of being validated by banks and financial service providers, transfers in Bitcoin are validated by a globally distributed computer network that is openly accessible to everyone.
