Altcoin Season seems to be upon us - but what is it? As Bitcoin takes a breather, attention is turning to lesser-known cryptocurrencies. Much of the crypto market is still poised, ready to take advantage of a drop in Bitcoin dominance. The cryptocurrency market often revolves around the sentiment towards Bitcoin.
