Digital asset investors and traders are beginning to lean towards a rise in altcoins as Bitcoin cools off. A digital currency analyst – Crypto Welson – said:

Bitcoin dominance is currently at 70 percent, but I am predicting it will decline significantly as alts gain a lot of dominance over the next year. Many alts including XRP and ETH look very bullish in their BTC pairings.”

Bitcoin (BTC) dominance is down to 67 percent and that of altcoins is increasing. Another crypto proponent – Crypto Bitlord – tweeted:

Even a noob can see it breaking down. What that means, simply, is altcoins are about to pump.”

When Would Altcoins Pump?

Altcoins have been down for the better part of this year. They enjoyed a significant increase in June when Bitcoin (BTC) tested its year-to-date high. However, they have returned to the levels in which they started the year with. Ethereum – the largest altcoin in the market – is down by 50 percent from its year-to-date high. It has one of the best performances among altcoins. However, no one knows when this expected rally would come and many traders are waiting for that moment.
