On Wednesday, the US Federal Reserve once again increased key interest rates by 75 basis points. The impact of this increase on the markets was identical to what was anticipated, as the US stock markets fell after the decision. However, the crypto market did not respond as negatively. Bitcoin's value has decreased by 0.73 percent in the past 24 hours, with its price now hovering around $18,700 (approximately Rs. 15.06 lakh) across global exchanges, while Indian exchanges such as CoinDCX value BTC at $20,213 (approximately Rs. 16.28 lakh), which is 1.57 percent less than Wednesday morning.

On worldwide exchanges such as CoinMarketCap, Coinbase, and Binance, the price of Bitcoin is $18,693 (about Rs. 15.05 lakh), while CoinGecko statistics indicates that BTC's value has decreased by 8 percent since Thursday.

Ether has also experienced a sharp decrease following a brief increase on Monday and Tuesday. Ether is currently trading in a range between $1,260 (about Rs. 1.02 lakh) and $1,280 (approximately Rs. 1.02 lakh) on worldwide markets, a decrease of almost 4 percent over the past 24 hours. ETH is currently valued at $1,376 (about Rs. 1.1 lakh) on Indian markets, a decrease of 4.78 percent from the previous day.

"The Federal Reserve continued its rapid quantitative tightening strategy on September 21, hiking interest rates by another 75 basis points for the third consecutive time, strengthening their stance to rein in inflation to meet their eventual 2 percent CPI target from the current excess of 8 percent," according to CoinDCX's research team.

"As the FED aims for a funds rate in excess of 4 percent by the end of the year, the pressure remains for another significant hike in the coming months, especially against the backdrop of robust payroll data and rising service inflation in an overheated labor market, with another 75bps or even 100bps likely in the near future. With today's 75bps increase, US interest rates reached 3.25 percent, their highest level since 2008, a reflection of the times and the hawkishness that is currently influencing market sentiment."
