Why are crypto investors worried?
Neel Kashkari, CEO and President of the Minneapolis Fed made some comments a day before stating his expectations for the Approach of the Volcker Rule. During a period of raging inflation in the United States, Volcker produced two recessions that were short but large enough for the nation to be forced to stop spending and reduce inflation.
The Volcker Rule is a U.S. regulation that restricts banks from conducting certain investment activities with their own accounts, and limits banks’ dealings with hedge funds and private equity funds. The Volcker Rule is named after former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker.
By making such proposals, Kashkari believes that the Federal Reserve should create recessions to stop inflation. As one of the dovish Feds officials, his statements have worried many in the cryptocurrency sector. This is due to others, such as James Bullard, President of St. Petersburg. Louis, even the one with the toughest stance before.
If the current Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell agrees with others, the cryptocurrency market will move more bearish. But if he decides to deal with inflation peacefully, the cryptocurrency market will move positively.
From the above expectations, it is clear that the Federal Reserve has the potential to create a recession. Therefore, the outcome of the meeting now depends on how Jerome Powell will decide to address inflation, dovish or hawkish.
