Meanwhile, even after a pullback in the past month,the cryptocurrency market is witnessing a celebrity-driven commercials for trading platforms.

Signs are mounting that crypto could be headed for a pronounced selloff. And the Federal Reserve’s hawkish pivot on Wednesday may just accelerate the process. One telling signal is that trading volumes for both crypto and NFTs are declining after surges. In their latest reported quarters, crypto-focused Block Inc., formerly known as Square, and Coinbase Global Inc. both reported digital currency trading revenue significantly below market expectations as transactions on their platforms slowed. 

Additionally, the aggregate value of NFTs traded on marketplaces has fallen since its August highs. However, the former US first lady Melania Trump on Thursday launched her own NFT platform, the latest public figure to join the crypto boom.
