The cryptocurrency market remained generally calm for the past week, with Bitcoin holding the $28k position. The second largest digital asset, Ethereum, traded around $1,800 during the past week. Nevertheless, there were a few outliers in the altcoin market led by Ripple-backed XRP, Cardano (ADA), and Hedera (HBAR) that gained double digits percentages during the last week.
As the first quarter of 2023 ends today, crypto volatility is expected to spike during the weekend. Moreover, FOMO crypto traders could push the altcoin prices higher as Bitcoin’s dominance retests critical resistance level.
Meanwhile, the United States crypto regulatory scrutiny continued with the SEC Chair Gary Gensler requesting a whopping $2.43 billion for the financial year 2024 during the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government hearing on Wednesday.
As a result, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse called on U.S. elected officials to take note as Gensler dictates the financial regulations.
When you behave like an autocrat running a $2.2B bloated agency, why would you ever want to provide clarity about what’s “in or out”?
Without clear jurisdiction, ambiguity masquerades as power.

Closer Look at Ethereum and Bitcoin Market Outlook
It is safe to say that Bitcoin and Ethereum prices control the rest of the crypto market, dominating over 60 percent. According to a popular crypto and forex trader, Justin Bennett, the crypto market remains sideways even after the rally between Tuesday and Wednesday. As a result, the analyst indicated that he is still bearish in the crypto market for as long as Bitcoin price trades below $29k
“I’m still cautiously bearish on crypto while Bitcoin is below the $29,000 macro resistance, but I’m also open to playing the range while it exists,” the analyst noted.
Bennett insisted that a bullish engulfing trade in the Ethereum market will be confirmed once the assets break above $1,840.
