CNBC has just announced that the European Central Bank has experienced the biggest rate hike in its history, lifting the interest rate by 75 basis points.

Earlier this year, in early May and mid-June, the U.S. Federal Reserve took similar steps, raising the interest rate by half a percentage point and again by 75 percentage points. Those were the largest hikes in periods of over 20 and nearly 30 years.

The biggest digital cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, remained stable both times and even demonstrated 1% growth on that news.

Now, the ECB has joined the policy of rate hikes started by the Fed. So far, BTC is up by nearly 1%. However, both interest rate hikes were followed by a sharp price fall.

On June 15, when the second hike was introduced, Bitcoin plunged from above the $22,500 zone to $17,744.
