The bitcoin price has failed to regain its 2021 momentum, however, with the price of ethereum and other major cryptocurrencies struggling in the face of harsh Federal Reserve interest rate hikes designed to drive down soaring inflation that surged to a 40-year high this summer.

“I believe [the] U.S. dollar will crash by January 2023 after [the] Fed pivots,” Kiyosaki posted to Twitter, adding: If the “Fed continues raising interest rates, the U.S. dollar will get stronger, causing gold, silver and bitcoin prices to go lower … when the Fed pivots and drops interest rates … you will smile while others cry.”

The bitcoin price has climbed back towards $20,000, boosting the price of ethereum and other major … [+] cryptocurrencies, as expectations rise the Federal Reserve could “pivot.”
Meanwhile, other market watchers are predicting the spring of 2023 could be when the crypto market “rebounds” following its $2 trillion crash this year.

“At present, the market is trying to catch its breath, just as expectations for the U.S. interest rate hikes may be catching their peak. It is estimated that in a quarter’s time, the U.S. dollar could be at an interest rate of 4.7%. If that were the peak, then perhaps the spring of 2023 could bring a bigger rebound in the cryptocurrency market as well, since expectations for interest rate cuts in the U.S. could begin to rise with falling inflation.”
