In addition, the Bitcoin dominance rate has recently retested and failed to overcome the uptrend for two years, altcoins are expected to soon have some chance to rise higher than King Coin.
Flight to a safe place can hurt altcoin
While technical signs are pointing to impending power in the altcoin market, especially XRP, the fundamentals tell another story.
Dan Morehead and Joey Krug of Pantera Capital explain Bitcoin will probably outperform other tokens for a while, explaining that it is one of the most entrenched and not funded crypto projects:
“This is a project that has been built, it works, it has a track record of 11 years. Many newer blockchain projects and smart contracts are still under development and can focus on raising funds to complete their development. ”
They further explained that it is typically a flight to a safe place, where people want to put money into the largest capitalized coin, the safest asset, the "treasury" of the industry. In the case of crypto assets, Bitcoin is a treasury bond, as it is far more liquid than the rest, including Ethereum and XRP.
Notably, Morehead commented in a later interview with Real Vision's Raoul Pal that he expected this trend to be temporary (lasting for half a week) and that the regular dynamics between Bitcoin and the last altcoin. The same will come back again when the crisis is over.
