Shares of cryptocurrency companies with Nasdaq listings like Coinbase (COIN), MicroStrategy (MSTR), Marathon Digital (MARA), and others have started to surge after the U.S. consumer price index (CPI) data for January came in at 6.4%.

Due to the recent crackdown on the cryptocurrency sector by American officials like the SEC and NYDFS, Coinbase's (COIN) price plunged over 25%. On Monday, COIN's price fell 1.21% to close at 56.40. However, during pre-market trade, the shares are up 3% at 58.01.

The shares of Tesla and Coinbase are continually being purchased by Cathie Wood's Ark Invest. The prices of Tesla and Coinbase shares increased in January as a result of significant Cathie Wood buying.

Will the cryptocurrency market continue to rebound like MicroStrategy shares?

In January, the US annual inflation rate decreased from the anticipated 6.2% to 6.4%. Since October 2021, it has never been lower. Additionally, the CPI increased by 0.5% from December to January, the largest in three months, primarily as a result of increasing prices for housing, food, gasoline, and natural gas.

But the price of bitcoin has remained over $21.5K and is currently trading at $21,752, up almost 2% from a low of $21.4K. While in the last day, the price of Ethereum has increased by almost 3% to $1,545.
