Dimon noted that we are already witnessing a tightening credit market as banks choose not to extend additional loans in order to preserve capital.

As reported by U.Today, Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rate to 5%-5.25% in May, signaling tighter monetary policy.

Dimon's comments could portend a bearish environment for risk assets like Bitcoin. In the wake of rising interest rates, the US dollar (DXY) could strengthen, exerting downward pressure on the cryptocurrency market.

While some Fed policymakers have signaled that they would be in favor of additional rate hikes, others including New York Fed chief John Williams are now on the fence, Bloomberg reports

It remains to be seen how this debate will play out, but what is clear is that investors need to brace for a potentially higher interest rate environment.
