Altcoin bulls vs. Bitcoin bears, who will win?

  • Bitcoin’s sell signal could threaten emerging altcoin narratives this week.
  • Two of most important among the upcoming events include Do Kwon’s trial and SBF’s sentencing.
  • The RWA narrative due to BlackRock’s recent move could result in explosive moves.

This week’s outlook will be interesting as altcoin bulls try to go against Bitcoin’s bears. With an early Asian session pump in BTC, investors should ideally prepare for a US session sell-off. But if the pioneer crypto holds its ground, a few altcoins will likely trigger a rally. 

Three non-narrative altcoins we are keeping an eye on:

  • Ripple’s XRP token looks primed for double-digit gains – Read more.
  • Litecoin, a laggard, also shows signs of a potential rally – Read more.
  • Sushi’s big-picture outlook also breathes confidence for holders, but there’s a catch – Read more.

Crypto narrative – Real World Asset (RWA)

BlackRock’s tokenized fund allocation has kickstarted a rally among RWA-based tokens like Ondo (ONDO), Dusk (DUSK), Maker (MKR), Centrifuge (CFG), Avalanche (AVAX), Polymesh (POLYX) and so on. 

But this or any narrative that emerges this week is at the behest of the Bitcoin (BTC) price, which flashed a sell signal on the weekly chart. If BTC continues to crash, altcoins will likely follow suit.
