It's no secret several popular altcoins, including Bitcoin Cash (CRYPTO: BCH) and Ethereum Classic (CRYPTO: ETC), have experienced marked weakness throughout the month of June.

Cryptocurrencies have also been seen by some investors as a speculative hedge against inflation and the Fed's plans to curb inflation could weigh on the broader cryptocurrency sector.

According to data from Benzinga Pro, over the past month:

  • Bitcoin Cash is lower by 48.98% to $99.86
  • Ethereum Classic is lower by 41.65% to $14.52
