– The value of the entire cryptocurrency market also fell below $1 trillion as digital coins across the board saw a sell-off.

– Bitcoin found its way back above $19,000 late in the day and was last trading less than 1% higher at $19,044.30, according to Coin Metrics.

– Ether, which has far outpaced bitcoin’s gains in recent months, hovered below the flat line, at $1,571.20.

– Central banks around the world are battling rampant inflation with tightening monetary policy. The U.S. Federal Reserve has undertaken a series of interest rate hikes totaling 2.25 percentage points. Markets are expecting further interest rate rises.

– Policy tightening by the Fed has strengthened the U.S. dollar which has weighed on risk assets. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield has also surged.
