Major cryptocurrencies were trading flat early on June 23 as the global crypto market cap increased 0.05 percent to $899.78 billion over the last 24 hours. On the other hand, the total crypto market volume declined 5.85 percent to $66.53 billion during the period.

The total volume in DeFi stood at $5.39 billion, 8.11 percent of the total crypto market's 24-hour volume. The volume of all stable coins was $57.68 billion, 86.70 percent of the crypto market's 24-hour volume.

Bitcoin hovered around Rs 16.90 lakh, with a dominance of 43.20 percent. This was a 0.07 percent decrease over the day, data from CoinMarketCap shows.

Meanwhile, markets are bracing for a world of higher interest rates, led by moves from the US Federal Reserve. Higher rates can bring down inflation, but they also risk bringing on a recession by slowing the economy. They also tend to hurt prices of stocks, cryptocurrencies, and other investments. Last week, the Fed hiked its key short-term interest rate by triple the usual amount in its biggest increase since 1994. It could consider another such mega hike at its next meeting in July.

Bitcoin, which reached a record high of $69,000 in November, has lost more than half its value this year.
