Alt Season on The Cards?
The BTC Dominance graph shows how much of the market capitalization for all cryptocurrencies is made up of Bitcoin. A bullish BTC Dominance indicates that Bitcoin is increasing more quickly than other crypto assets, or that altcoins are depreciating as the top cryptocurrency increases.
“If you look at the general direction of this, it seems like it’s arguably down… Maybe that’s building towards something that we’re seeing the beginnings of. Maybe it comes back up [to 58%] and it comes back down [to 40%].”
According to Cowen, a rise in Bitcoin Dominance in the upcoming months may actually assist pave the way for an alt season later on. During an altseason, cryptocurrencies have a strong surge as Bitcoin consolidates.
“Everyone talks about altseason and whatnot, but in order to get a true altseason like we’ve seen in bull markets past, a lot of times you need a lot of the juice that comes from already having [Bitcoin] dominance relatively high.”
