Halving for Bitcoin (BTC) and other crypto assets like Litecoin (LTC) has remained a big catalyst but with less performance from Litecoin (LTC) from the recent halving; there have been increasing concerns for Bitcoin (BTC) halving.

Litecoin saw its price tank after its halving as many experts and analysts speculated a weakening trend of halving ahead of Bitcoin, considering the expectation of an impending bull run.

Bitcoin’s price and other crypto assets like Ethereum (ETH), Binance coin (BNB), and Ripple (XRP) have all suffered a tough week as bears tend to have an advantage over prices. 

Ripple’s (XRP) price dominance has dropped dramatically in recent days after news of its success in its lawsuit as the price continues to suffer price decline from its high of $0.93 to $0.66, with the price likely to drop more.

Statistics on Coin360 have shown much influence of bears on the price of major cryptocurrencies, with just a few exceptions performing well heading into a new week with many opportunities on the horizon with these top 5 altcoins (GALA, SHIB, MATIC, INJ, ADA).

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has remained under the influence of bears as the price struggles to regain bullish price action. With the bears looking to take full advantage of BTC price, the price of BTC needs to reclaim $30,000 to have many bullish opportunities.

If the price of Bitcoin (BTC) breaks below $28,500, acting as strong interest for many long positions, we could see bears driving BTC’s price to a low of $27,500.

On the daily (1D) timeframe, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) trades below the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) with its daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) looking weak, indicating a bearish scenario for BTC price if the price fails to reclaim $30,000.

With the price of BTC looking bearish, Ethereum (ETH) continues to look bearish likewise, as BTC dominance continues to affect many altcoins. 

Ethereum’s (ETH) price continues to hold above key support of $1,820; if the price of ETH closes below this support, we could see the price drop to a low of $1,700, serving as strong support for buy positions. 

Despite the uncertainties for Ethereum and Bitcoin, let us pay attention to these top 5 altcoins (GALA, SHIB, MATIC, INJ, ADA) ahead of the new week, as these tokens could perform better than BTC and ETH.
