“When [глава ФРС] Powell started hitting inflation on the head with a sledgehammer, of course, bitcoin rolled back, like many assets. If he gives up this fight […] quotes of the first cryptocurrency will immediately unfold “the expert explained.
The head of Galaxy Digital said the Fed’s rate hike campaign has stripped bitcoin of its status as a “powerful hedge against rising consumer prices.” The Fed’s policy had a greater impact through correlation with traditional financial assets than inflation itself, he added.

Recall that in August, the ex-manager of the hedge fund Cramer & Co. and CNBC’s Mad Money host Jim Cramer said the Fed’s monetary tightening will “wash out” speculative assets like cryptocurrencies.
In September, former Quantum associate George Soros, billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller, predicted a resurgence in digital assets amid the collapse of the fiat-based economy.
