[아시아경제 이정윤 기자] The aftershock of the bankruptcy of the global virtual currency exchange FTX continues, but the price of the representative virtual currency bitcoin is on the rise.

According to CoinMarketCap, a global cryptocurrency market exchange site, on the 26th, as of 2:03 pm on the 26th, the price of bitcoin was 16,636 dollars (about 22.26 million won), up 1.37% from the previous day. WEMIX, a coin issued by WeMade, which was decided to delist (cease transaction support) on the five major domestic exchanges, fell 6.68% to $0.4261 (about 570 won).

In the coin market, the fallout from the FTX bankruptcy filing continues, but the price of bitcoin seems to be more affected by the prospect of easing the rate hike. In the minutes of the FOMC meeting released on the 23rd (local time), the Federal Reserve System (Fed) said, “A significant number of attendees were of the opinion that it would be appropriate for the pace of rate hikes to slow down in the near future. ” Coindesk, a media specializing in virtual currency, evaluated that the price of bitcoin rose due to a sign that the tightening policy of the Fed would be eased.

In addition, Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, the world’s largest exchange, is stepping up to reduce the fallout of FTX by creating an industry recovery fund. He said he would create a $1 billion industrial recovery fund and increase it to $2 billion. Binance said it received $50 million in commitments from virtual currency investment firms such as Jump Crypto, Polygon Ventures, and Animoca Brands.

However, despite these moves, the FTX crisis is still a shock to the market. Cryptocurrency lending companies that invested in FTX, such as Genesis Trading and BlockFi, are said to be exposed to the risk of bankruptcy.

Cryptocurrency investor sentiment is reviving. According to Alternative, a virtual currency data provider, the Fear / Greed Index, which expresses investor sentiment as an index, has scored 22 points (extreme fear), up 2 points from the previous day. The fear/greed of alternatives index means that the closer you get to 0, the more you feel extreme fear of pessimism about an investment, and the closer you get to 100, the more optimistic you feel .
