"The positive news around crypto from Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell has added to the momentum of Bitcoin price rise, the world's largest and oldest cryptocurrency. During the slight dip last month, crypto-related investments witnessed record inflows owing to the growing global acceptance of crypto assets. The same momentum is boosting the prices of other popular crypto assets like Ethereum, Dogecoin, and Shiba Inu among others. India and neighboring countries are the main growth drivers of the crypto economy in South East Asia and they will continue their dominance because of the large number of active crypto investors in the region," commenting on the development said Mr. Jay Hao, CEO, OKEx.com.
