After a lifetime of following Bitcoin’s erratic ups and downs, altcoins now appear to be standing on their own, strong and tall.

Bitcoin dominance also continues to fall as altcoins gobble up more and more share of the crypto market. At time of publishing, Bitcoin dominance is down to 32.9% on Coinmarketcap. It was above 60% less than a month ago.
