AltCoins Alt Coins

Bitcoin’s price has been on a bit of a downswing lately, dropping to $62,300 yesterday. However, it has bounced back quite a bit since then, gaining almost $2,000.

Today, the prices of altcoins are looking positive, with Ethereum rising above $3,300 and SOL climbing back to the $140 mark.

Bitcoin Faces Volatility After Fourth Halving

In the aftermath of its fourth halving just over a week ago, Bitcoin witnessed significant volatility as block rewards for miners were cut in half. During this time, the asset’s price fluctuated amidst escalating tensions between Iran and Israel.

Price Swings and Recovery: Following a sharp decline to below $59,500, the cryptocurrency experienced a rapid recovery, surging by over $5,000 to surpass $65,000 last weekend. Momentum continued into the early days of the business week, with Bitcoin spiking above $67,000 on multiple occasions.

Bearish Reversal: However, the bullish momentum was short-lived, and bears swiftly reversed its trajectory. Wednesday saw a notable downturn as Bitcoin dropped to $62,800. Although it briefly rebounded to $65,000 on Thursday, it again faced downward pressure, falling to $62,400 by Saturday.

Current Status and Market Overview: Despite the volatility, bulls have intervened to stabilize Bitcoin’s price, which now hovers around $64,000. Its market capitalization has approached $1.260 trillion, although its dominance over altcoins has decreased to 50.1%.

BTC Dominance Declines as Altcoins Outperform

Ethereum Leads Altcoin Surge: The decreasing dominance of Bitcoin indicates that most altcoins have surpassed the performance of the largest cryptocurrency. Ethereum exemplifies this trend, with the largest altcoin recording a gain of over 6% in the past 24 hours, trading above $3,300. Similarly, Solana and Toncoin have seen significant gains, reaching $143 and $5.5, respectively.

Across-the-Board Increases: Several other altcoins have also experienced daily increases in value, including MATIC, NEAR, ICP, ETC, ARB, IMX, and MKR.
