Cryptocurrency rises despite indictment against former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried

Bitcoin, Ethereum and other risk assets are holding steady despite the fundamental risks that remain key for price action. With US prosecutors filing criminal charges against former FTX CEO Sam Bankman Fried, a softer US CPI print has assisted in driving digital currency higher.

After the implosion of FTX drove BTC/USD to a fresh yearly low of $15,479 in late November, a move higher allowed prices to stabilize above $17,000. With economic data suggesting that US inflation may have peaked, a hold above $17,792 (the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the 2020 – 2021 move) could assist in driving the recovery.
