Markets flatten out with Bitcoin stuck at $66,000, but Jasmy is still on the charge

TRADING is flat again this morning, with most large cap cryptocurrencies unmoved over the past 24 hours. Bitcoin is currently changing hands for just above $66k, after a steep drop last week saw it hit its lowest level in a month. 

Likewise, Ethereum continues to stagnate at just below the $3,600 marker after a drift downwards, despite SEC chairman Gary Gensler confirming that Ethereum ETFs will be here soon. A number of other alt coins took a major hit last week, with the likes of NEAR dropping by double digit percentages.

The stagnant performance will come as a disappointment to those who were predicting that the US Federal Reserve Bank’s decision to keep interest rates unchanged would lead to a breakout. 

Japan's much-celebrated token Jasmy continues to buck the trend and is still producing upward movement, as it has for more than a month. It's currently up more more than 4% in 24 hours at $0.036.
