Amid the current financial scenario, analysts have focused their attention on the cryptocurrency market, which is showing signs of recovery. Michaël van de Poppe, a respected figure in the trading community, recently predicted that the total cryptocurrency market capitalization could rise to a staggering $2.2 trillion. This projection comes at a time when the market is going through a consolidation phase, falling below the crucial mark of 1.6 billion dollars.
The role of Bitcoin in market dynamics
Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, plays a key role in this projected growth. It recently surpassed major resistance at $38,000, prompting optimistic predictions about its future trajectory. Van de Poppe correlates the advance of Bitcoin with the potential increase in the market capitalization of cryptocurrencies. He suggests that breaking through the $1.6 trillion resistance could push the market to pre-Earth collapse levels, targeting the first $1.85 trillion and eventually reaching $2.2 trillion.
Altcoins Preparing for a Milestone
At the same time, altcoins are not far behind in this potential financial revolution. EGRAG, another market analyst, predicts that the market capitalization of altcoins will reach the trillion-dollar mark. This level of growth has not been seen since the collapse of the Terra ecosystem in May.
EGRAG recalls the dramatic decline that followed, falling from $1.268 billion in April 2022 to a low of $485 billion two months later. Currently at a 19-month high of $735.5 billion, the altcoin market is recovering steadily, indicating a possible uptrend similar to the post-May 2022 scenario.
Implications for Bitcoin and Altcoin Valuations
If these predictions come true, the impact on individual cryptocurrencies could be substantial. For Bitcoin, a total market capitalization of $1.2 trillion would mean a price increase to around $61,301 per token. Meanwhile, altcoins could see a 2.3x increase in valuation, reaching as much as $1.7 trillion. This outlook has led analysts to advise investors to watch out for a recovery around March 2024.
