ID, PAC, and RVN are leading the altcoin breakout as bitcoin price targets new lows below $46,000.

Sentiment in the cryptocurrency is one of rising anticipation as Bitcoin (BTC) price continues to trade just below $47,000. Analysts are warning of sideways price action that a “period of explosive volatility” is fast approaching, but few are ready to predict the direction of a breakout.

As Bitcoin’s price shrinks, the altcoin market is reviving and several tokens are showing notable gains, particularly in the DeFi cohort.
