in the latest episode macro marketCointelegraph analyst Marcel Pechman discusses the Fed’s delicate balancing act of curbing inflation without causing a recession, and reveals the potential implications for the cryptocurrency market.

In the cryptocurrency world, expectations of rising interest rates can have short-term negative effects. This could lead to a loss of confidence in the U.S. dollar, which could lead to a downturn in the cryptocurrency market. Still, Pechman remains optimistic about Bitcoin’s (BTC) potential, emphasizing that its strict monetary policy is a key factor in maintaining value during times of economic uncertainty.


The long-awaited approval of a spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund is in focus as it could be a game-changer for the cryptocurrency market and could pave the way for a bullish run targeting $200,000.

Shifting focus to the bond market and insights from JPMorgan’s chief investment officer for fixed income. His contrarian strategy of buying debt instruments to secure higher yields during a surge in inflation proved prudent. As expected, weak inflation validated his timing and experience in bond trading.

However, Pechman made an important point worth considering for cryptocurrency enthusiasts: If the Federal Reserve lowers interest rates after a series of rate hikes in 2023, it may initially have a negative impact on cryptocurrencies. The cryptocurrency market could experience short-term volatility as investors lose confidence in the U.S. dollar.

While the soft-landing scenario remains a key concern for investors as the Fed decision unfolds, cryptocurrency investors should remain vigilant and consider Bitcoin’s long-term resilience amid changing economic dynamics.
