Bitcoin has more or less stolen the spotlight since it broke the crucial $10k ceiling back in July of last year. The King of Crypto has gone on to blast through several resistances including $20k, $30k, $50k and $60k to set an all-time high of $61,816 – Binance rate – on the 13th of this month.
Altcoin Market Cap Has Been Growing Alongside Bitcoin
Unbeknownst to many crypto traders, is that the altcoin market capitalization has also been rising from around $137 Billion in July of 2020 to a new all-time high of $684 billion on the 18th of this month.
Along the way, the altcoin market capitalization zoomed past the 2017 all-time high of $473 Billion in early February this year, only to soon retest it at support around the 27th of the same month.
It is with this event that Bitcoin and crypto analyst, Rekt Capital, believes that such a retest of an old-all time high, could cause the altcoin market cap to grow by thousands of percentage points. Rekt Capital shared his analysis through the following tweet.

If Rekt Capital’s scenario plays out, altcoins could be gearing up for a spectacular run that will catch many crypto traders by surprise.
