Crypto Markets Rise, JPMorgan Expert is Expecting a Further Positive Shift

All major cryptocurrencies are in green, and according to experts one of the reasons that fueled the recent momentum of the market can be the support of the approval of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) commissioner Robert Jackson.
According to JPMorgan's global market strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, the crypto hype period is almost over, prices are settling around stability, and the crypto sector will rise due to institutional players returning to the crypto realm. Institutional investors are being conservative about entering the crypto world due to cryptocurrency volatility. Now that volatility has settled to reasonable levels, investors are keen on investing in Bitcoin. The JPMorgan expert pointed out the primary reason for cryptocurrencies not being able to grow exponentially so far – the lack of regulations.
