Altcoin season? Cardano gains more than 23% 📈

16:56 8 December 2023

In the cryptocurrency market, we are observing another wave of increases. This time, capital has clearly started to flow from Bitcoin to smaller projects. The first signals could be noticed in yesterday's session, when Ethereum gained over 6%, breaking above 2300 dollars. Today, the increases on Ethereum continue, with the second-largest cryptocurrency gaining to 2360 dollars. There is also a noticeable flow of capital to altcoins in the market. Smaller projects with their capitalization are approaching the key level (Total3) of 450 billion dollars, thus recording a 50% increase this year. Considering the recent dynamic increases in Bitcoin, the current market situation may favor smaller projects in the coming weeks.

Today, investors' attention is mainly drawn to Cardano, which gains over 23%, despite relatively mixed On-Chain data for this project.
