There’s been a number of factors pressing the pound sterling down and a great deal of pressure stems from the Ukraine-Russia war and the discrepancies between central bank rate hikes across the globe. The pound started to nosedive during the first quarter of 2022, as did a number of fiat currencies at the start of the Ukraine-Russia war.

Furthermore, the United Kingdom and the European Union (EU) started to feel the effects of an energy crisis that derived from the West tightening sanctions against Russian energy suppliers. Meanwhile, as the Federal Reserve started to aggressively raise the benchmark federal funds rate, the Bank of England raised its rate by 50 basis points (bps). Currently, the Bank of England’s rate is 2.25% and the U.K. central bank plans to readdress it on November 3, 2022.

Meanwhile, FTX co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried explained on Monday how the world would see things differently if everything wasn’t measured in U.S. dollars. “Boy would the world thinking differently about crypto price moves [if] they measured it vs world currency baskets instead of just USD,” Bankman-Fried tweeted.
