Bitcoin’s Dominance On The Rise

Bitcoin’s dominance is the index that tracks the overall percentage of Bitcoin relative to the total market capitalization. At the time of this writing, it stands at 65.3%, which is almost 4% up in the past four days alone.

This means that altcoins are failing to claim new grounds, hinting that an altcoin season is far from being present.

It’s certain that the altcoin market also felt the impact of the global financial crisis sparked by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In March, major altcoins crashed massively following in the footsteps of Bitcoin.

However, the signs of recovery are already here. From a low of about $119 billion on March 12th, the total market capitalization increased by almost $70 billion to $187 billion, where it currently stands. That’s a growth of 57%.

Bitcoin’s halving is also right around the corner. It is speculated that with it will come a serious increase in the value of BTC as its supply will be substantially reduced. Whether or not altcoins would surge with it, however, is something that we have yet to find out.
