“In the past month, Bitcoin has experienced a notable upswing, with its price surging by 30% and hitting a new annual peak of $35,000, which is 10% higher than its previous peak for the year. Interestingly, while Bitcoin’s growth is evident, the wider cryptocurrency market hasn’t quite matched its pace.”
“Alternative Cryptocurrency Market Capitalization”
“The market capitalization of alternative cryptocurrencies, known as Altcoins, has been trading within a descending triangle. This pattern is recognizable by its lower highs and equal lows, often signaling a bearish trend. Such a pattern implies that sellers are gradually gaining the upper hand.
Breaking out of this pattern is usually viewed as a bullish signal, with the initial peak as the target. In this instance, the Altcoin market cap could potentially experience another 15% surge, aligning with the yearly highs observed in April.”
“We observed a comparable pattern in the previous cycle, with the Altcoin market capitalization trading within a descending wedge. Following the breakout, the Altcoin market cap surged by 90%. These historical patterns underscore the significance of vigilantly tracking such indicators as potential precursors to market changes.
In contrast, while the Altcoin market cap forms lower highs, Bitcoin’s price is establishing fresh annual peaks. This trend implies that Bitcoin is increasing its dominance over the broader cryptocurrency market, a phenomenon commonly known as ‘Bitcoin Season’.”
“Bitcoin currently commands a 54% market share, a level not seen in over two years.
The last instance of Bitcoin’s market share reaching this threshold was during the bullish run of 2021. As that year unfolded, Bitcoin started to cede market share as investors redirected their focus toward cryptocurrencies with smaller market capitalization, driven by the allure of potentially greater returns.
Today, the trend appears to be reversing, with investors once again being drawn to Bitcoin, enticed by its superior returns compared to the broader cryptocurrency market.”
“The next resistance level is at 58%, and should Bitcoin surpass this milestone, it has the potential to add an additional 5% to its market share.
Historical patterns have demonstrated that in the early stages of bullish markets, Bitcoin frequently assumes a leadership role, driving the creation of new all-time highs. This is often propelled by Bitcoin-specific narratives, such as the halving event, which reduces the rate of new Bitcoin supply. This year, there is heightened excitement surrounding the potential approval of a Bitcoin ETF, which could open the door to a broader spectrum of investors to participate in the asset.”
“Notable Altcoin Outperformers”
“Amid the prevailing ‘Bitcoin Season,’ a few select Altcoins have managed to deliver even more remarkable returns. Notable among them are:
- Injective: +74%
- Solana: +68%
- PEPE: +67%
- RENDER: +45%
- Chainlink: +45%
