Will Altcoin Season Come In January?

Kazakhstan accounts for about 18% of the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain hashrate. Therefore, due to the shutdown of the Internet, the computing power of BTC network decreased by 15%. Against the background of a decrease in the hashrate, the exchange rate of the coin fell, and the dominance of Bitcoin in the crypto market dropped to the lowest value since May 2018.

Many experts suggest that the weakening of BTC will trigger the start of the altcoin season and a powerful pump in the value of Ethereum. For example, analyst Michael van de Poppe predicts an increase in the price of ETH to $22,000 in 2022.

However, the chart data indicate the continuation of the bearish trend in the medium term. Firstly, the asset rate overcame 50% Fib in January, taking into account the pump from $1,700 to $4,868. Secondly, a shrinking triangle was broken at the end of December. The width of the figure indicates a dump of Ethereum price up to $ 2,500, and Fibonacci correction indicates a drop in the value of the coin to $2,400 (78.6% Fib). Most likely, Bitcoin will drag Ethereum with it, and the exchange rate of both cryptocurrencies will update the previous minimum in the first quarter of 2022.
