After big stories with a bitcoin rally against Silicon Valley Bank bankruptcy and some reasonable cooling on the news of regulatory pressure on Binance and Coinbase, there has been some period of calm, and the crypto market continued to consolidate.
What does crypto Twitter most interested in these days? Mostly by predictions of the next market move, as we can see.
