Altcoins continue explosive bull run while stallsNot too long ago, Bitcoin (BTC) diehards were warning that altcoins are dead. “The altcoin phenomenon is finished,” RT host Max Keiser said in July. But, based on this week’s performance, the rumors of their death may have been greatly exaggerated. In recent days, Bitcoin has been trading sideways — struggling to break away from the $10,200 price zone. Life has been very different for its nearest competitor Ether (ETH), which had risen by a whopping 20.65% on the week at the time of writing. ETH investors were undoubtedly buoyed by news that tests are under way to improve network performance and reduce transaction fees — potentially increasing capacity by 25%. Other altcoins in the top 20 have also had a storming week, with up 14%, by 4.84%, LTC by 10%, and Stellar (XLM) by a head-turning 29.9%. A poll on Crypto Twitter indicates the community is divided over whether this heralds the start of an “Altseason” — but some analysts believe the altcoin bounce may indicate Bitcoin’s resurgence is imminent.
