Currently, the crypto market is experiencing extreme volatility as the Jackson Hole conference is underway in Wyoming USA. This annual conference of the Federal Reserve is expected to lay down the central bank’s plan for the next year. Fed chair Jerome Powell’s speech at 10:00 AM ET will likely impact the crypto markets and Bitcoin strongly.
According to Michael van de Poppe, the CEO of Eight Global and crypto analyst, Bitcoin must stay above $21K. If it manages to break $21.8K, it might be able to accelerate above $23K. However, even after a brief attempt to overcome $22,000, bitcoin has returned to a similar range between $21,000K and $21,500K. Most altcoins followed suit, except for XRP, ADA, MATIC, ETC, and AAVE, which have registered some gains.

XRP, the native token of the decentralized platform Ripple, has surged by over 3% to a daily high of $0.36.32 and is currently changing hands at $0.35.
