The largest capitalization digital currency, bitcoin (BTC), has been reaching new record prices in its history since last week. But this is not the only case in the market. There are more than 15 crypto assets that also experienced this, after BTC.

Different factors motivated the ATHs of multiple cryptocurrencies

Normally the arrival at all-time highs (ATH) of multiple cryptocurrencies takes place after this milestone is achieved by bitcoin, as was the case in this case. This happens because The appreciation of the main digital currency spreads enthusiasm in the market and greater appetite for risk, motivating demand.

In addition to this, there are internal factors of each cryptocurrency that may have motivated its new price record, such as the market’s interest in memecoins or artificial intelligence projects.

Meanwhile, the altcoin with the most capitalization, ether (ETH) is trading 24% below its all-time high recorded more than two years ago, and others are even further away, as reported by CriptoNoticias.

It should be noted that altcoins include cryptocurrencies without including bitcoin. Something to keep in mind is that these have a lower capitalization, so they react upwards or downwards more easily. That causes their prices to experience greater volatilityleading to larger profits as well as greater risk of losses.

Cryptocurrencies must consolidate their support to continue rising

After various crypto assets registered new price records, they generally slowed the rise due to a decline in bitcoin. The latter, which touched an all-time high of USD 73,700 yesterday, is now lateralizing around USD 68,000.

In this sense, the market shown in a consolidation period testing support (minimum zone due to greater demand than supply). This is normal behavior after an uptrend.

Given this, it could be that the cryptocurrencies that registered a historical price record since last week will not return to it until bitcoin does not reactivate its upward trend.
