Crypto Market Update Mar.26: AltSeason Continues

Alt Season

Is the brand new 2019 Altcoin season at its peak? It appears that a multitude of cryptocurrencies have recently arrived at resistance areas. In the crypto markets, everything happens quickly, and sharp rises carry rapid, sharp corrections.

This is familiar behavior that has been persisting for the past several weeks, with the start of the week commencing with a correction where we see upsurges in an endeavor to pierce resistance levels.

The effects of the Bitcoin price on the majority of the market is obvious, and when matching up the Bitcoin chart to the major Altcoins’ charts, we can notice that a direct correlation is obtained: where the Altcoins gain more than Bitcoin.

Referring to spikes: Only today, trailing an important announcement, Everex (EVX) hasEverex Gains gained 300% in only 1 day. Even though it is not the first coin to demonstrate such gains, seeing it after such a bearish year may be a fore-token.

The market is not silent, and enthusiasm and hype are slowly building up. If this trend keeps on, we can anticipate crypto to reach the mainstream. Moreover, there is also an awakening trend in the events involving the crypto market, such as companies announcements.

A new analysis took a look at the dominance of Bitcoin over the crypto market whilst taking into consideration the liquidity factor. The study reveals that, in practice, Bitcoin has significantly greater dominance– 80%– way higher than what is commonly known– which is around 50%. This can educate us a lot on the relevance of Bitcoin to the crypto markets.

Generally speaking, it can be said that optimism is back and that positive trend continues this week as well, and it seems that the market is still at the bottom in whens it come to its market cap and its potential to grow. But … only time will tell.
