By Saransh Raina
The crypto market rose on Monday after the Treasury Department imposed new sanctions against Russia’s central bank.
Bitcoin jumped 10.4% to $41,807.16, while ether rose 7.6% to $2,826.54. U.S. equities were down sharply earlier in the day before recovering a big chunk of their losses. The sanctions unveiled by the Biden administration would effectively prohibit Americans from doing business with the Russian central bank and freezes assets within the U.S.
