Analyst Notes: Cryptocurrency analyst Michael Van de Poppe remains uncertain about the possibility of a correction on Bitcoin in the short term.

"Im unaware whether we will get this correction on Bitcoin in the short term. I think that this rally is going to peak between $54-58K and provide a substantial correction to $40-42K after the halving has taken place."

Glassnode co-founders Jan Happel and Yann Allemann, known as Negentropic on X, assert that the Ethereum versus Bitcoin (ETH/BTC) ratio serves as a crucial indicator for the performance of altcoins. Their analysis indicates that following an extended consolidation period, the ETH/BTC ratio has surged, signaling a potential upswing for altcoins.

"The Ratio which drives Altcoins Bull Market' ETH/BTC ratio is a gauge on the crypto market. Higher ratio the more risk-on in crypto (altcoins). When ETH/BTC rallies, altcoins rally. And we have just broken higher after a long consolidation since late 2021. Altcoins will soar. All points to a blow-off top as suggested by Henrik Zeberg."
