Bitcoin’s dominance is fading

It is interesting to note this breakthrough of altcoins, as the queen of cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin (BTC), is struggling to regain its all-time high reached a fortnight ago, at more than $ 67,200. BTC is trading this morning at around $ 62,500.

The consequence is that the dominance of BTC over altcoins continues to wane. Bitcoin only represented 41% of the total cryptocurrency market cap yesterday. It is of course very far from being dethroned, but it still indicates a fundamental interest in altcoins, which is noticeable in recent months.
