<h2><span style="color: #ba372a;"><strong>What Crypto Traders Are Saying About Current Market Scenario</strong></span></h2>
<p>Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, &ldquo;The new week started with most cryptocurrencies witnessing a positive trend gaining momentum as the market reacted to key developments such as the White House’s announcement of a successful resolution to the debt ceiling crisis and better-than-expected personal consumption data from the US. Bitcoin has been currently changing hands above the $28,000 level experiencing a surge over 3 percent over the past 24 hours and recovering from its weekly gains. If Bitcoin manages to exceed the resistance level at $28,500, it has the potential to continue its upward trajectory in the near future.&rdquo;</p>
<p>WazirX Vice President Rajagopal Menon offered his take, &ldquo;Bitcoin skyrockets to a two-week high on investor optimism after a US debt limit increase deal. Congress approval is crucial to avoid default. Rising Treasury yields and expectations of monetary tightening add potential headwinds.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p>
