Market overview

The US Federal Reserve maintained the current interest rate level while increasing its GDP growth and inflation projections for 2024. The central bank anticipates three interest rate cuts in 2024, potentially commencing as early as June. Despite existing uncertainties, Powell's recent dovish remarks served to dispel pessimistic market sentiments and indicate Q1 as a pivot point in this monetary policy cycle. This news propelled the US stocks to record highs and stimulated a $7000u rebound in BTC, reasserting an essential support level. Ongoing monitoring is needed to see whether BTC can sustain above the $69,500 mark.

The entrance of traditional institutions such as BlackRock broadens the imaginative scope and accelerates the implementation speed of the RWA track. Key focal points include ONDO, POLXY, and TRU.
