Strong moves from Bitcoin this week have rekted altcoins in the process. In the last 24-hours, the leading crypto posted +8% gains to $18.2k.

With its current run of form, many analysts expect Bitcoin to break its previous all-time high soon. Analyst ConnorNix predicts we’ll see a retest of $17.1k, followed by an upswing to $20k by tomorrow.

“With the smell of parabolic-ness in the air, one can’t help but draw bullish charts.

Retest orange line, 17100ish, this was a big resistance on my charts. Tomorrow 8am gmt roughly.

Then up to purple line which is ATH by the same evening then to the moon!

Bitcoin has surprised a lot of people. I’m hoping it’s going to surprise the world 🌎 .”

The net result sees only a handful of crypto alt tokens gaining against BTC. Notable examples include Digibyte, up 4.5%, and Yearn Finance, up 3.8%.

The overwhelming majority of alts are down against BTC, many of which are in the double-digit losses.

With no sign of let up from Bitcoin, altcoins holders are bracing for more turbulence ahead.

Is Altseason Coming Soon?

However, all is not lost. Analyst @Stillman__ see similarities, with the previous altseason, in the patterns of major crypto altcoins at present.

He concludes that ALT/BTC pairings have bottomed or are close to bottoming.

If the alt action were to resemble 2016, – then alt lows on strong ALT-BTC-pairings are likely in or close to in. I am emphasizing the word strong here because our samples from 2016 all ended up being top performers. – USD lows are even more likely already in.”

@CryptoMichNL shares a similar view. Like ConnorNix, @CryptoMichNL believes Bitcoin is due a correction. This, he predicts, will be followed by weeks of ranging price movement for the leading crypto, giving altcoins relief from the onslaught they have suffered to date.

Following this, he predicts a final Bitcoin drop will precede a new altseason in January – March 2021.

Predictions of an altseason have come fast and loose during the three years since the last bull run. All of which have turned out wrong.

With Bitcoin inching back up to ATHs, a position that was not the case at any point in the last three years, could this prediction be the one that’s right?
