In an interview with Bloomberg journalists, Michael Novogratz noted that amid the general financial crisis, one should not expect a quick recovery in the prices of bitcoin and ether. In the coming months, the US Federal Reserve will increase the base rate, Novogratz believes, which will hinder the growth of the cryptocurrency market. But when the Central Bank of the United States finishes raising rates, money from large hedge funds will flow into Bitcoin and Ether.
"The moment the Fed stops… I think you will see a lot of traditional macro funds that had a great year start buying bitcoin. We too will begin to increase our position at this point."stated Novogratz
One of the reasons for the current weakening of the rates of the leading cryptocurrencies, the CEO of Galaxy Digital called too much margin positions. Moreover, from the side of large players, such as Three Arrows Capital. This fund appears to have failed to hold collateral for margin positions, resulting in their closing. And such margin calls lead to massive sales and a rapid decline in the market.
Novogratz expects that many cryptocurrencies and not only companies will declare bankruptcy in the near future. At the same time, the CEO of Galaxy Digital continues to look positively at the cryptocurrency industry. He compared it to Zoom Meeting, which, despite significant losses, is unlikely to leave the market. And cryptocurrencies, despite the fall, will not leave the financial scene anywhere.
Earlier, a cryptocurrency enthusiast said that bitcoin is unlikely to fall below $20,000, and ether below $1,000.
