Everybody is looking forward to seeing a new bull rally in the cryptocurrency market and this depends on Bitcoin. On Monday afternoon, BTC was up by 0.22% trading at $3,839. This was 1.5% lower than the levels in Sunday afternoon and 2.7% lower from Sunday’s high of $3,950. Different cryptocurrency experts are giving their unique Bitcoin price prediction 2019. eToro’s Mati Greenspan said that the live price action of Bitcoin is an indication that the cryptocurrency winter may be coming to an end. In his words:
“With bitcoin lagging behind while other cryptos surge, the feeling is that the crypto winter is coming to a close and it is now alt season,”
At this time, the altcoins are outperforming Bitcoin. This is something that happens when the entire market is bracing up for a bull run. This happened just before the 2917 bull run. Also, when the sell-off was about to start at the beginning of 2018, altcoins started underperforming. Greenspan continued:
“Of course, there’s no telling how long this could last but the signs are all in place. Global volume across crypto exchanges is holding steady at around $30 billion per day, yet bitcoin’s volume is less than a third of that figure,”
