Over the past six weeks, Bitcoin dominance has surged from 53% to 58% (according to TradingView), catching many traders with their pants down. This comes as investors and analysts such as Fundstrat Global Advisors’ Thomas Lee, who frequents CNBC to convey his thoughts on cryptocurrency, have hinted that the fabled “altseason” in on the horizon.
Yet, prolific cryptocurrency investor Mike Novogratz, a former Goldman Sachs partner and hotshot on Wall Street, says that there might not be a fully-fledged altseason this market cycle. Responding to Ran NeuNer of CNBC Africa, who recently asked if days during which altcoins pump 40% or more are inbound, Novogratz stated that he doesn’t expect for the mania of 2017 and early-2018 to be repeated. Novogratz, who has become adamant in his belief that Bitcoin’s primary value proposition is as a digital gold/store of value, states that the market is getting smarter, meaning that Bitcoin will likely outperform its ilk in the coming expected bull run.
