Bitcoin leaps up as the US shows support for the banking sector

The crypto market cap surpassed $1 trillion after the Federal Reserve, U.S. Treasury, and FDIC assured depositors of Silicon Valley and Signature Bank that they could withdraw their funds on Monday. Bitcoin and Ethereum were 8% up, with Cardano, Polygon, Solana, Litecoin, and Avalanche all up more than 10%. The joint statement by the U.S. financial institutions brought some relief to the crypto market amid the Silvergate Bank, SVB's bank, and Signature Bank troubles.
