Why Bitcoin, Ethereum May Not Be The Best Plays For The Next Bull Market

Since the launch of bitcoin, there have been massive gains recorded by those that got in early and held on long enough. The same was the case with Ethereum, whose market cap grew to the hundreds of billions. However, the growth that these digital assets have already seen over the years, it has put a hamper on how much they can still grow over the coming years. This is why investors are looking elsewhere for larger gains. Bitcoin, Ethereum Gains Are Lower Over the last bull market, it became apparent that bitcoin and Ethereum will no longer be able to give the kind of returns that early investors had gotten. During the previous cycle low, bitcoin had dropped to as low as $6,000 but had reached $69,000 during its peak. This was a 10x growth for the digital asset.

It had grown from its cycle low of around $100 to $4,800 at its peak. This was about a 500x growth for the digital asset. BTC grows 10x | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com However, their already massive growth has been putting investors off of them, not because they are not good investments but because the potential to explode exponentially has been greatly reduced. An example is that from bitcoin’s current price, even if it were to reach $100,000 per coin, it would still be a less than 10x growth. The same with Ethereum, although the digital asset does carry more potential for larger growth compared to bitcoin due to it being much younger. If ETH were to grow to $10,000 per token, it would barely be a 10x growth. Altcoins Take The Cake Altcoins had barreled ahead of market leaders such as bitcoin and Ethereum when it came to gains in the last bull market. Where these large digital assets were doing below 500x, smaller altcoins such as Dogecoin and Shiba Inu had recorded ROI in the thousands.

FTM is a token that had traded as low as $0.2 and peaked above $3.4 during the bull market. DOGE’s price had made an impressive run-up from $0.004 to $0.7 at the height of its rally. However, these are only, but a small example of the many ways altcoin had been great investments during the bull market. With the next bull market expected to happen in 2024, it is no surprise when investors are turning to smaller cap tokens in hopes of catching the next DOGE or SHIB.

Bitcoin Sells-Off Amid Strong Economic Data, Can $18,600 Hold The Line?

Bitcoin has been unable to break above or below its current rage, and price action remains undecided. During yesterday’s trading session, the cryptocurrency saw upside volatility, but gains were surrounded once more today as macroeconomic forces took over BTC. Related Reading: MEV Crypto Bot Gains $1M But Loses Same To Hack Same Day At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) trades at $19,200 with sideways movement in the last 24 hours and 4% profits in the last 7 days. While large cryptocurrencies have been able to preserve some of their gains from the past week, most are following the general sentiment in the market. U.S. Economy Report Tumbles Bitcoin Price As Bitcoin was moving into its upcoming resistance level at around $20,500, the U.S. published its recent economic report on the job sector. The initial jobless claims for September’s last job came in at 193,000, the lowest level since April 2022, according to a report from CNBC. This represents a 16,000 decline from the previous week when the jobless claims stood at 215,000. This data indicates that the U.S. economy has continued to see a spike in its job force, with fewer people reporting unemployment. The Jobless continuing claims also saw a decline of 29,000 for a total of 1.3 million. This data has relevance as the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) is set at stopping inflation from rising, as measured by the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI). The latter metric is currently at a multi-decade high which forced the financial institution to hike their interest rates. However, the Fed’s monetary policy seems to be having no impact on U.S. economic growth. The report stated: The strong labor numbers come amid Fed efforts to cool the economy and bring down inflation, which is running near its highest levels since the early 1980s. Central bank officials specifically have pointed to the tight labor market and its upward pressure on salaries as a target of the policy tightening. Bitcoin Far From Seeing A Price Bottom? As a result of this data, the legacy financial markets and Bitcoin traded to the downside. Market participants must be pricing in further interest rate hikes and more aggressive measures from the Fed as it attempts to cool down inflation. As the data went public, President of the Cleveland Federal Reserve Lorretta Mester spoke about doing “what we must do to get back to price stability”. Other members of the financial institution are likely to adopt a similar stand. This will translate into more pain for Bitcoin and risk-on assets. Commenting on the data, an analyst for Material Indicators said the following, while sharing the chart below showing the crypto market’s reaction to the jobless report: FireCharts shows how BTC traders responded to the economic news. Strong economic report means FED tightening hasn’t had much if any impact yet. Translation: More aggressive rate hikes through Q4 and into 2023. Macro Analysis: THE BOTTOM is not in. Related Reading: Solana Price Fails To Break $34 Again, What Could This Mean? As NewsBTC reported yesterday, Bitcoin must stay above $18,700 to $18,600 to sustain any potential bullish momentum. If bulls can defend these levels, the cryptocurrency could see a relief that will push its price north of $20,000 ahead of more economic announcements from the Fed.

PancakeSwap Watch: CAKE Trading Volume Spikes Over 50% In 24 Hours

PancakeSwap (CAKE), just like any other cryptocurrency, has had its share of ups and downs. PancakeSwap registers over 53% increase in 24-hour trading volume PancakeSwap among trending BNB projects today CAKE’s next resistance level could be at $5 Just two months after it was launched on September 2020, the token hit its all-time low to date. Back then, it was trading at just merely $0.19. Today, a quick glance of data provided by CoinGecko shows the 68th ranked crypto by market capitalization trading at $4.80. It is way below its $43.96-all-time high that was attained on April 30, 2021. CAKE might have lost 89% of that impressive trading value, but that does not necessarily mean the token is not commanding strong interest among traders. If anything, current data shows Christmas came early for the digital asset. PancakeSwap Outperforms Many Cryptocurrencies The crypto market is continuing to deal with bearish conditions, but CAKE was able to pull off an impressive feat – close the day and the week in green and outperform many of its competition. Over the last seven days, the governance token of PancakeSwap was able to increase its value by 9.4% and is one of the few digital assets to be “on the green” in today’s market.

Its 24-hour trading volume is also standing mighty strong. In fact, there was a 52% increase in the token’s trading volume, even reaching over $55 million before slightly reverting to above $51 million at the time of this writing. Even with that, PancakeSwap has shown some impressive leaps for the past week.

If its most recent trading volume is any kind of indication, the digital currency, by the looks of it, actually sold like pancakes. After all, high trade volumes often denote “high retail excitement” and in crypto space, this might work wonders for an asset’s price. Over the past week, CAKE placed high on the watch list of crypto investors and is among the trending BNB projects. The PancakeSwap bulls, though, needs to capitalize on this momentum in order to sustain price level of above $4.50 as this will lead to $5 as the next resistance level. If the pressure for buyers remains strong, CAKE’s short-term trajectory could be a sweet one.
