The overall crypto markets took a heavy beating with Bitcoin plummeting to sub $41K levels. The week saw huge selling volumes with the Federal reserve re-confirming the hike in interest rates. Ethereum and other Altcoins followed suit behind Bitcoin and slid massively amidst heavy liquidation.
We can expect a bounce back in the crypto markets after a continuous 7-day correction. Bitcoin has a key support at $40K and a dip below this level could see Bitcoin and other Alts tumbling further. After the hawkish comments by the Federal Reserve, the crypto markets have essentially been passive. Having said that, the fundamentals look promising. Infact, most of the large and long term investors have made use of this opportunity and increased their investments in the crypto portfolios.

- Opensea raises $300m in Series C funding at a $13.3 billion valuation.
