What Happened in the Crypto Market this Week?

The US Consumer Price Index (CPI) was released on Thursday. According to the figures, the CPI increased 0.4% in September, more than the estimated 0.3%, suggesting that the war against inflation is far from won. As expected, the published data influenced the crypto market. 

After Bitcoin shot past $20k last week, it fell to a three-week low shortly below $19,000 on Thursday.

Bitcoin started the week a little below $19400 and gradually fell as the CPI release date drew close. On Thursday, the cryptocurrency fell sharply to its lowest this week (18,180). Since then, it has recovered and is approaching $20k again. 

Other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), Solana(SOL), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Polygon (MATIC) also followed BTC’s steps by falling slightly in the last seven days.
