Bitcoin BTCUSD, -0.07% briefly jumped above $40,000, a psychological level, as the Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell speaks Wednesday after the central bank raised a key interest rate by a half point and said that in June it will start a multi-trillion dollar balance sheet contraction. Powell said the Fed is not actively considering a 75 basis point rate hike but the “broad sense in the committee is that 50 bps should be on the table at next meetings.” Bitcoin is up 5.8% from 24 hours ago to around $39,855, according to CoinDesk data. Ether ETHUSD, -0.48% rose 6.2% to around $2,951.
