What happened in the crypto market this week?

To combat inflation, which is currently at a 40-year high in the United States, the Federal Reserve on Wednesday increased interest rates by 75 basis points for the fourth time in a row this year. 

Although the Fed’s hawkish monetary policy has caused investors to flock to safe-haven assets like the U.S. dollar, whose value has skyrocketed, it is anticipated that the central bank will soon slow down the pace of its tightening, which is encouraging news that may have prevented a sell-off in the cryptocurrency market.
