On the other hand, popular memecoin PEPE (+7.4 percent) has recently found new support and has seen a significant uptick in terms of the volume of coins traded,” Hudda said.

Tether, Binance Coin, Ripple, Dogecoin, Cardano, Solana, and Polygon — all recorded small profits on Wednesday.

Furthermore, Litecoin, Polkadot, Shiba Inu, Avalanche, Chainlink, Stellar, and Leo also reflected small gains.

In the last 24 hours, the valuation of the crypto market spiked by 1.64 percent to sit on the mark of $1.18 trillion (roughly Rs. 97,72,618 crore), showed CoinMarketCap.

With this, the crypto fear and greed index also observed some correction. The index is down four points from yesterday and is currently in the neutral zone with a score of 50/100.

Only a small number of cryptocurrencies recorded losses today.

These include Wrapped Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Cosmos, Braintrust, and Augur among some others.

“In other news, BlackRock's much-awaited Bitcoin ETF is likely six months away and is more of a question of ‘when, and not if'. This development is set to boost the inflow of institutional money into the biggest digital asset in the world,” Hudda noted.
