Cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, experienced a rise in value as investors anticipated the Federal Reserve's annual meeting and Bitcoin attempted to reach $30,000.
Bitcoin has made a significant move upwards, approaching $27,000 after days of stagnation, although other cryptocurrencies such as SOL, ADA, TON, and MKR have outperformed it.
Bitcoin is projected to reach levels of $200,000 or even $1 million in the future, with growing institutional interest and limited supply driving its bullish trajectory, according to industry experts.
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell cautions that inflation is still too high and hints at the possibility of raising interest rates further, leading to uncertainty in the markets; meanwhile, Pantera Capital predicts that Bitcoin could reach $35,000 by 2024 and potentially climb to $148,000.

The network has experienced a surge in trading volume and market capitalization, reaching $144 million and $898 million, respectively, and has seen trading volumes of up to $10.8 billion in the past 24 hours. However, there are concerns about whether this surge in value can be sustained, as other similar platforms have previously experienced a decline in popularity shortly after their launch.
Some altcoins like OKB, Ocean Protocol (OCEAN), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Toncoin (TON) show potential for bullish trends in September, with OKB potentially hitting a new all-time high at $72.10. However, a breakdown in the support areas could result in bearish trends for these cryptocurrencies.
Altcoins could potentially rally ahead of the Bitcoin halving, according to cryptocurrency analyst Michaël van de Poppe, who believes that the Bitcoin dominance chart suggests a surge in altcoin value rather than a downward market. Van de Poppe is also bullish on Ethereum against Bitcoin, predicting a rise in ETH/BTC to 0.06992 BTC.

Binance continues to dominate the crypto market as the leading exchange.

Binance remains the leading exchange, with a market share of 64.3% in 2023, but liquidity is concentrated within a few exchanges, leading to concerns about decentralization. Altcoin liquidity has also suffered due to regulatory issues in the US, with Coinbase, Kraken, and Bitstamp holding the majority of altcoin liquidity.
Messaging app Telegram has chosen the TON network as its preferred blockchain, integrating it into the app's user interface and providing its 800 million users access to the TON-built Web3 wallet; Toncoin, the blockchain's native token, experienced a 6.5% surge in value as a result.
Bitcoin (BTC) reached new September highs as markets reacted positively to macroeconomic and crypto industry news, with the cryptocurrency trading at around $26,300, up 5.5% from its September lows; traders have expressed optimism about Bitcoin's recent performance and potential future breakout if a Bitcoin spot price ETF is approved by U.S. regulators in the coming months, while some remain cautious and predict a potential relief rally before a further decline in on-chain volume.
