As the past weeks’ bull market has continued to rage, we’ve seen prices for the two most well-known cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, rocket upwards. However, many believe that the wider altcoin market could very well follow in Bitcoin’s wake. Essentially, the reasoning is that altcoins are lower-priced alternatives with more potential upside.
