Growing interest in the crypto market

Blockchain analytics firm Glassnode revealed a sharp uptick in BTC’s balance on Binance exchange over the previous month. Of many things, this behavior implied a growing appetite for risk-based assets in the market.

The spate of banking collapses in March led investors to put their funds in the crypto market and see BTC as a hedge against traditional finance. The king coin soared 21% during March, hitting the $28,000 mark for the first time since June 2022.

As another high-profile banking entity, First Republic Bank, stares at a downfall, the crypto market in general and BTC in particular would be hoping to attract disgruntled investors from traditional markets.
