Altcoins Most Oversold Ever; Why Bitcoin Dominance May Soon Fall

After a jaw-dropping uptrend in Bitcoin dominance, all eyes have started to focus on the altcoin subset once again. You see, over the past couple of days, cryptocurrencies have begun to gain some strength against BTC for the first time in a blue moon, resulting in a slight Bitcoin dominance retracement from 71.2% to 69.7%.

While this may sound like nothing, analysts are starting to get convinced that altcoins are ready to continue to gain some steam at long last. Let’s take a closer look.

Altcoins Extremely Oversold

In August, we reported that Adaptive Capital’s Willy Woo remarked that altcoins were heading into a region of support at long last. This trend has continued into early-September.

The prominent on-chain analyst, known for his reports on how Bitcoin’s network effects equate to its value, remarked that the altcoin vs. Bitcoin market capitalization chart is “now two weeks into testing its 6.5-year support line”, which has yet to break. What’s more, the weekly relative strength index (RSI) of this chart is “more oversold [than its been] in its entire history”.

Woo didn’t explicitly call for what cryptocurrency traders call an “altseason”, only claiming that altcoins may see “some bounce”. Yet, there are many that believe the limited run altcoins have been on will continue.

The Crypto Dog, a prominent analyst with over 100,000 f0llowers on Twitter, recently pointed out that the market capitalization of cryptocurrencies sans Bitcoin is about to break out of a descending wedge.

A Bitcoin-Centric Market

While the technicals seem to be in the favor of altcoiners, the narrative still seems to be one centered around Bitcoin.

Asreported by NewsBTC previously, Anthony Pompliano, a Morgan Creek Digital partner, stated that Bitcoin dominance will only continue to gain steam. While the prominent investor didnt mention an exact target, he expects his firms index, which includes nine leading altcoins, to naturally float towards a BTC dominance of 95% from the 80% where it stands today.

Prominent commodities trader Peter Brandt has echoed this line. In a recent tweet, the Bitcoin maximalist claimed that in five years,99% of all crypto assetswill be a distant memory.

Pompliano and Brandt arent just postulating.

Theres a reason whyBakkt is focusing on Bitcoin for its custodyand futures solution, opting to only offer products for the leading cryptocurrency reason, or why Grayscales Bitcoin Trust has gained massive traction, but its Ethereum or ZCash Trusts have not.
