This week Bitcoin’s price primarily hovered around the $10,000 mark. It seemed like a tug of war between bulls and the bears with $10,000 in between. While the first half went to the bulls, the bears started to strengthen their hold and now are in control.

Nevertheless, this week probably witnessed the beginning of an altseason. This was the first week since Q2 of 2019 when altcoins recorded significant gains over Bitcoin. The dominance of Bitcoin also fell to 64.4%.
