Ethereum's Upgrade, Worldcoin's Expansion, and Immutable's Web3 Gaming Revolution

Bitcoin (BTC) surged to over $43,000 as the sun rose in Asia, marking its first significant rise since a recent flash crash, buoyed by the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) signal of potential interest rate cuts by 2024. The Fed left the funds rate unchanged at 5.25%-5.5% after the December FOMC meeting but forecasted a reduction to 4.6% by the end of 2024, hinting at three 25 basis point cuts. This dovish stance led to a decrease in bond yields and the U.S. dollar index, fueling a rally in risk assets like stocks and cryptocurrencies, with BTC climbing nearly 5% in a day.
