BTC investors become indecisive amid conflict in Ukraine

Vague prospects for the global economic and political situation became the main reason for indecisive BTC at the beginning of the week, according to crypto experts. The conflict in Eastern Europe along with high risks do not allow investors to engage in heavy trading in the crypto market and US equity market.

In spite of the fact, some analysts believe that bitcoin could benefit from uncertainty in global markets. Steve Wozniak, a well-known American programmer, has recently said BTC would soon reach $100,000 amid the tense geopolitical situation, growing investor interest in cryptocurrencies, and hyperinflation.

Besides, the flagship cryptocurrency has repeatedly been called a reliable inflation hedge by many analysts.

On top of that, market participants reacted positively to an Executive Order on cryptocurrencies signed by US President Biden. The document contains six main sections: consumer protection, financial stability, illegal activities, America's competitiveness in the industry, financial inclusion, and responsible innovation.

It is planned that separate federal departments would soon propose comprehensive solutions for regulating digital assets.

The FOMC meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, will be the main focus of attention in the market this week.
