The ongoing weakness in the ETH/BTC ratio is quite similar to that recorded from May to July 2022. The price ratio has again reached the 0.052 level. The recently released data shows a slowdown in ETH’s growth compared to BTC.
Moreover, the data underlines a trend of capital flowing towards BTC from other assets. It includes ETH and similar assets, helping BTC secure its position as the most dominant crypto. The capital waterfall also shows how confident investors are regarding BTC as a store of value.
As expected, the data enticed traders to reconsider their BTC holdings. Many investors looked for Bitcoin future predictions to get an idea of its upcoming movement.
