The post Crypto Market Outlook: Altcoin Market Poised for Rally as Whales Fuel Buying Spree appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
In the cryptocurrency world, the altcoin market, after an 18-month horizontal consolidation, is gearing up for a significant rally. Industry insiders suggest the market could soar beyond $700 billion, propelled by increasing interest from ‘smart money’ or savvy investors.
Dogecoin Leads Gains Amid Altcoin Surge
A notable example of this uptrend is Dogecoin (DOGE), which has seen an 8% increase in the past 24 hours, trading around $0.083 during the mid-London session on Friday. This surge is a broader pattern expected to continue over the weekend as Bitcoin’s dominance displays short-term vulnerabilities.
Bitcoin Whales Shift Focus
The altcoin market’s speculation has led to substantial activity among Bitcoin whales, including miners. These major holders are reportedly taking profits and diversifying into alternative cryptocurrencies. This trend is supported by the BlackRock Ethereum iShares Trust, boosting institutional confidence in altcoins. Market intelligence from Santiment indicates a significant offloading of Bitcoins to smaller account holders.
Impact of SEC’s Delay on Bitcoin ETF
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) decision to delay the approval of a Bitcoin ETF has contributed to the shift in investor focus. Disappointed Bitcoin enthusiasts are now turning their attention to the burgeoning altcoin market.
The ETH/BTC pair, often used to gauge cash flow between Bitcoin and altcoins, has been consolidating in a symmetrical ascending triangle since 2017. Currently nearing its apex, and with indicators like the weekly Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggesting an oversold condition, a rebound seems imminent. This is viewed as a prime buying signal for altcoin investors.
As the crypto landscape evolves, the altcoin market is attracting heightened interest, signaling a potential shift in the balance of power within the crypto world. This trend, amplified by institutional investments and strategic moves by major Bitcoin holders, paints a dynamic and rapidly changing picture of cryptocurrency investment strategies.
