Adam Black, the CEO of Blockstream, has recently affirmed that Bitcoin dominance is set to rever to around 90%, which would mark the end of the altcoins’ supremacy era. According to him, the historical heights will be achieved once more at the expense of the altcoins.
He affirmed this during a recent debate with Dovey Wan, the co-founder of Primitive Fund. Initially, Wan asked about how Bitcoin was quickly decoupling from altcoins and rising in price alone. Adam Black answered that this was a “reversion to mean” and that the process would continue. At the moment, the dominance of BTC is around 70%, but he believes it will grow.
Last year, Bitcoin had less than 40% of the whole market cap, but the situation is changing quickly. Black affirmed that the whole reversion of the trend will last for around two years and a half and that the dominance will be huge when the process stops. Before 2015, BTC dominated 90% of the market and he believes that this will happen again.
This obviously gives some power to the narrative that Bitcoin is here to take the place of the altcoins completely. Vocal critics of altcoins have been very prominent lately by affirming that they are mostly doomed, with maybe only a handful of them surviving the future.
The Bitcoin maximalist Max Keiser, for instance, affirmed that the altcoins will never recover from their losses and that Bitcoin will continue to be the king in an even more undisputed fashion now. Is he right? Hard to say, but the trend if clear, Bitcoin is growing and the altcoin market is struggling to follow.
