As Christopher Inks of TexasWest Capital said in an interview with Cointelegraph earlier today, with many fundamental legacy market indicators flashing incoming recession, Bitcoin market participants are pushing the “Bitcoin is digital gold” narrative. But the truth is that we don’t know if it really is yet. Inks added:

“The Bitcoin market has only been around during a bullish economy, so we don’t know how it will perform during an economic downturn.”

Ether (ETH) is currently trading at around $179.4, having increased by 1.75% over the day. On its weekly chart, the coin is up just 1.51%, while its monthly chart shows losses of 15%.
