The Crypto market started the week with a green trend. However, the lack of confidence in the markets shows it’s signs and attempts to break through also bringing with them the correction. After last year madness the market is still unstable and it is hard to say that we saw it’s bottom. Sidelong positive forecasts, the downward trend continues and may lead to further declines, as we saw in the years 2013-14 after the fall of MTGOX and the subsequent price declines.
Although, despite the Bitcoin downward trend we are witnessing a mixed trend in the alternative coin arena trading against Bitcoin and Etherium. On the other hand, trading against the dollar has weakened and rumors say that USDT continues to print. Many ask whether there is any more to go down? The crypto market is not for the faint-hearted and veteran traders have warned against the wave of declines and some are expecting further declines until the market stabilizes. In the meantime, the media has already lowered gears in the world of Bitcoin and Blockchain, and most of the reports deal with the wave of declines and tightening regulation.
Bitcoin’s (relatively) low dominance signifies interest in alternative currency trading, which holds around 62.5% of the market. If Bitcoin’s dominance increases, it will hint at a change in this trend. Based on the past, it can be said that when the dominance of Bitcoin rises, the altcoins decrease and when Bitcoin’s rate rises, vice versa.
