Bitcoin Bull Trap? Not So, Says Lesser-Known Price Indicator
Bitcoin Bull Trap?
Still, that’s not to mention things are different this time around.
Is the reversal of a well-known bitcoin cost index signifying a bull trap?
This time around, however, ETH/BTC has been climbing with bitcoin, meaning bitcoin is rallying hand-in-hand with all the ETH/BTC exchange rate.
So, ETH/BTC will direct bitcoin.
In this circumstance, that the ETH/BTC rally will come to a stop.
That’s the question being asked by Twitter’s more expert crypto analysts following bitcoin’s increase to $8,500 per week, a figure that’s more than 25% since its ancient April lows. As such, many traders and investors are wondering if the market’s rally, propelled largely by a single day of strong profits, is finished (if only for today).
Still, now bitcoin is leading the way.
From the chart above, we could get a glimpse of how this has worked before.
The leader in blockchain information, CoinDesk is a media outlet that strives for the greatest journalistic standards and abides by a strict set of qualitative policies. CoinDesk has been an independent subsidiary of Digital Currency Group, which excels in cryptocurrencies along with blockchain startups.
Truly, the preceding chart indicates the BTC dominance rate topped out at 45.62 percent on April 2 and dropped to 40 percent yesterday – that the lowest since March 1, that reveals rising investor interest in other cryptocurrencies.

Since the fiat currency will flow into crypto markets through assets like 20, the relationship is logical. Next, when the bitcoin valuations look overstretched, the money is rotated into the comparatively cheap choice cryptocurrencies (popularly called altcoins).

But, the dominance rate of others (lesser-known cryptocurrencies) has climbed sharply from 17 percent to 24 per cent in the previous four weeks.
After bottoming out around $6,400 on April 1, the subsequent recovery seems to have helped oversold ether recover poise (ETH dropped 53.8 % in March, while BTC dropped 32 per cent). Therefore, the debate which bitcoin’s rally may be a bull trap does not hold ground this time.
Everybody’s a winner?
In case bitcoin witnesses a long-term bearish-to-bullish fashion change, then the money may flow back into bitcoin from the lesser-known altcoins, hence fostering the BTC dominance rate.
The index in question, ETH/BTC, that monitors ether against bitcoin’s value, has been acting strangely of late. In the past, ether’s rise against bitcoin was greeted as a indication because of bitcoin, one that signals more traders will willingly exchange bitcoin for ether, the world cryptocurrency.
As per the data, bitcoin and the ETH/USD pair are related and the former will work as an outcome indicator for the latter.
Money is still being rotated out of bitcoin and into lesser-known cryptocurrencies, based on CoinMarketCap’s Bitcoin Dominance Rate, an indicator that monitors the percent of their whole cryptocurrency market capitalization led by bitcoin.
