This drop in BTC’s price has triggered a market-wide re-evaluation, prompting a debate on the potential for altcoins to spearhead the next significant rally in the cryptocurrency landscape.
Market experts and analysts believe the recent price crash is a part of the ongoing price cycle, and after two months of a bullish surge, a correction was inevitable.
Analysts’ insights into Bitcoin’s recent pull-back
Crypto analyst and co-founder of Reflexivity Research Will Clemente interpreted the market correction as a means to shake out weak positions and reduce the highly leveraged crypto markets, attributing this volatility to a necessary phase in market evolution.
BTC just ~doubled in 2 months with no pull backs, a correction is not that surprising.
Corrections shake out “weak hands” and leverage, allowing for a stronger foundation for eventual moves higher.
Bitcoin’s volatility is a feature, not a bug.
