Bitcoin struggles to keep growing

Market picture

The crypto market cap rose 0.4% over the past 24 hours to $1.21 trillion, peaking at $1.22 trillion, to the highest since April. Bitcoin’s dominance remains nearly 50%, the highest since 2021.

This uptrend was formed late last year and marks a typical market recovery pattern, with the most significant asset in the sector attracting buyer interest first.

It will probably take about a year of bitcoin price recovery before crypto enthusiasts start looking for one with higher potential (risk), pushing altcoins higher and leading to a new wave of capitalisation swell. This means that a real altcoin rally is unlikely before November. In addition, macroeconomic and regulatory conditions should be supportive.

According to CoinShares, investments in cryptocurrencies rose by $125 million last week, the second consecutive week of inflows. Bitcoin investments increased by $123 million and Ethereum by $3 million.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin briefly rebounded above $31.3K on Monday evening, repeating the highs of 23 June, but failed to confirm an upside breakout from the consolidation channel at the start of the European session on Tuesday.
