A prominent cryptocurrency market analyst has indicated potential for a significant uptick in altcoin market activity in the forthcoming weeks. The speculation by the analyst, known as Rekt Capital, arises from recent performance patterns observed in key altcoins, which may signal a repeat of the vigorous market activity seen in the previous quarter.
Previous Performance as a Precursor to Growth
The discussion initiated by Rekt Capital on a social media platform hints at the potential influence of Layer-1 protocol Solana (SOL) and the Ethereum-based oracle Chainlink (LINK) on the altcoin market. Both SOL and LINK have recently displayed positive price movements, leading to conjecture that a new altcoin cycle may be imminent, much like the one at the end of the previous year. Rekt Capital points to the recovery and strong performance of these altcoins as indicators of market dynamics.
The view that Chainlink could catalyze broader market momentum is shared by another analyst, Inmortal, who noted that Chainlink’s previous break from a multi-month accumulation phase was swiftly followed by general market gains. In particular, Chainlink’s early rise in the last cycle and its recent price action suggest it may be at the forefront of the next wave of market increases.
At the time of reporting, Chainlink was valued at $17.91, marking an ascent of over 20% since the year’s onset. Simultaneously, Solana achieved a 24% increase from its early January value, now trading at $98.46. These figures underscore the upward trend and potential that analysts predict for the altcoin market.
