On January 30, Bitcoin accounted for 44.82% of the total crypto market, the highest since June. In the month of September, the Bitcoin rate was as low as 38.84%.

, gained 30% during that period, indicating that many investors continue to gravitate towards Bitcoin until now in 2023.

From a technical point of view, Bitcoin’s regulatory intervention may rise further in the coming weeks as it retraces its 50-week moving average (red wave in the chart below) to support.

By doing this, the index can rise to 48.5%, which is like resistance since May 2021.

On the other hand, the independent market analyst Rekt Capital sees the control contribution of Bitcoin rising to 46%, which coincides with the increase of the main bearish channel pattern, as shown in the monthly time chart below.

Specifically, the pair ETH / BTC is consolidating near its support zone (yellow color) within 0.0676- 0.0655 BTC since January 24th.

The ETH/BTC pair may see a session ahead of its retracement (black) around 0.075 BTC if it continues to hold the support point. That, in turn, will reduce Bitcoin’s dominance in the cryptocurrency market as Ether’s share will rise to 20%.
