Analysts Expect Altcoins to Outperform as Bitcoin Price Stagnates | NewsBTC

Around three weeks back, altcoins suddenly started to rip higher; Ethereum gained 10% in a single day, Litecoin rocketed up by 8%, XRP gained some 20-30% in three days’ time, and so on and so forth.But since then, this odd trend in the crypto market, which has been dominated by Bitcoin for the better part of a year now (and especially since the start of 2019), has paused. After hitting 69%, Bitcoin dominance has been relatively flat, leading some to suggest that it is BTC’s time to shine once again.Related Reading: Crypto Tidbits: Bitcoin ETF Denied, Libra Loses Visa & eBay, SEC Crackdown on Telegram’s BlockchainAnalysts, however, are expecting the altcoin subset to soon begin their crusade higher.Altcoins to Soon See Price BoomAnalyst Chonis recently noted that Bitcoin dominance — the percentage of the cryptocurrency market made up of BTC — is far from a support level, despite the metric’s stagnation.

As a trader recently wrote in reference to the chart below:“The more I see this PA the more I feel this will be the case. I think people will continue to overanalyze the BTC range and miss out on significant alt movements.
