Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin Stumbled Last Week — But This Crypto Shot Up Over 37%

Even as the U.S. Federal Reserve increased interest rates by 75 bps at its latest meeting, the apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin BTC/USD continued showing bullish patterns in the last seven days, hovering at the $20,000 mark. The second-largest cryptocurrency Ethereum ETH/USD remained unusually stable, floating at the $1500 mark.

At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $20,870.30, up by 1.63% and ETH at $1,584.25, down 0.04%, according to CoinMarketCap. The global crypto market cap is $1.03T, a 2.12% decrease over the last 24 hours.

After an impressive start, things took a u-turn for Dogecoin DOGE/USD. The  Elon Musk-backed meme token declined by 4.04% over the past week, trading at $0.1175.
