Altcoin Season Debates Intensify Amidst Bitcoin Dominance Drop

The arguments for the onset of an alt season have been centered around the recent judgment ruling on XRP sales by Ripple in the past years. With XRP sold on exchanges regarded as non-security, most altcoins that were previously mentioned as unregistered securities have enjoyed a bullish outlook.

Bitcoin Dominance Wanes, Altcoins Take Center Stage

According to a popular crypto analyst on Twitter with more than 320K followers, Crypto Tony (@CryptoTony_), the altcoin season is yet to officially kick off. The analyst argued from a technical standpoint that the recent altcoin pump is just increased volatility on specific projects. As a result, Crypto Tony expects the ‘true’ altcoin season to kick off after the market breaks above a macro resistance trend.

Notably, the analyst expects the total altcoin market cap excluding that of Ethereum to rally as high as $480 billion from currently at $356 billion. The altcoin market enjoys higher volatility than Bitcoin due to its lower market capitalization and increased demand.
