After a series of 10 consecutive increases and an extended campaign lasting over a year, the Federal Reserve has decided to temporarily halt interest rate hikes this month. In addition, the Fed has chosen to maintain the interest rate at its current range of 5% to 5.25%. Following the decision by the FED to pause the interest rate hike, Bitcoin reacted to the news.
Bitcoin (BTC), which was trading above the $26,000 range, has hit a high of $26,041 and fell below the $26,000 range after the FED announcement.
