How does the price of Bitcoin affect other cryptocurrencies?

In November 2022, after 2 years, the price of Bitcoin fell below 20 000 USD again.

Which was therefore of great importance, because the last time the price was permanently below the psychological limit of 20 000 USD was in December 2020. The exchange rate was below 20 000 dollars for 10 weeks and sometimes went down to around 15 700 dollars. So, everyone was positively affected when we crossed 20 000 USD again at the beginning of January 2023.

This increase in more than 20% in one week, which many see as the end of the bear market. The price increase was accompanied by a fairly high market capitalization of almost 25%.

But what effect does Bitcoin’s exchange rate have on other cryptocurrencies? To what extent has the market capitalization of cryptocurrencies been rearranged by the rise in the exchange rate? Now let’s take a look how the price and market capitalization of the major minable cryptocurrencies have changed over the past week.

Ethereum Classic

The role and market share of Ethereum Classic has increased greatly since the transition of Ethereum. It is currently the 24th cryptocurrency by Market cap. In the past week, its exchange rate has strengthened, on January 10, the exchange rate hovered around 20 USD (at the end of 2022 the exchange rate was around 15 USD), which after a week keeps the value of 22 USD quite stable, which is a 10% rise. ETC’s market share also seems to be strengthening, only in the last one week a 12% increase was experienced.
