There has also been a slight but significant decline in Ether. Ether opened with a loss of 4.88 percent.

The global crypto market has lost 8 percent in value in the last 24 hours. The US Federal Reserve is revisiting its economic structure as the clouds of recession loom in the country. Since cryptocurrencies fall under the high risk category in terms of investment, investors are currently pulling out of crypto. There is a possibility that this period of recession may continue for a few days.
