Bitcoin crushes altcoins
As it turns out, BTC's commercial dominance over other cryptocurrencies has reached its highest level since 2017. A similar situation was seen when Bitcoin was targeting $ 20,000 per coin. As for altcoins, they remained stagnant - they did not record similar strong movements.
Looking at the entire cryptocurrency market, we can see that the most popular cryptocurrencies this time do not follow Bitcoin. While this was close to a 5% plus in the daily range, the top altcoins either experienced a slight increase (no more than 1-2%) or recorded a decrease (even by over 3%). The only exception is Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), which went up by 4.73%.
