Trader lays out 2 possible price scenarios for Bitcoin post its crash; Can Alts like ETH, LTC, ADA, etc, take advantage?
Bitcoin‘s recent bloodbath gave way to a lot of speculations, doubts, mixed emotions in the crypto community. With Bitcoin’s recent decline, altcoins rose to a 3-year dominance high with a consolidated market cap of $1.5 trillion. At the time of writing, BTC represented just 39.97% of the combined crypto-asset capitalization- the lowest ever recorded as per CoinMarketCap.

Two possible scenarios were pointed out recently by this crypto analyst, DonAlt, on his social media platform.
The tweet, with the header- ‘BTC Broke below the range yesterday,’ read:
“If it can reclaim it today by closing back above $49800, I don’t see a good reason why it wouldn’t move to $54000 again short-term.”
However, the flip side was spelled out for traders as well. He stated:
” If it can’t reclaim the range today, not only the weekly but also the daily would look very rough.”
This was later further illustrated using a Trading view graph.

Michael van de Poppe, the dutch trader, tweeted about the possible correlations between Bitcoin’s settlement and the Alts.
The good part; #altcoins are holding up nicely in the $BTC pairs.
Still my core focus.
Once #Bitcoin settles -> #altcoins are ready to outperform #Bitcoin big time.

The veteran trader reiterated that alts were holding on to their positions well. Altcoins like DOT, LTC, XRP, and ETH showed renewed upward momentum.
