Altcoin Surges Almost 250% Since the Beginning of the Year – What to Expect?

Ethereum (ETH) scaling altcoin flashes a bullish signal after +244% YTD, according to Santiment data.

According to Santiment, a company specializing in crypto analytics, Optimism (OP), an altcoin that scales Ethereum (ETH), is exhibiting bullish signals, even though it has already experienced significant growth since the beginning of the year.

Santiment highlights the social dominance indicator as a positive signal for the layer-2 (L2) scaling solution for Ethereum’s blockchain, Optimism (OP).

OP’s native token has risen by over 244% since the start of the year, from $0.92 to $3.17 at the time of writing.

Recently, Coinbase announced the development of Base, a layer-2 scaling solution on the blockchain, which resulted in a surge in Optimism’s value.

Santiment notes that the number of large Bitcoin addresses has remained stable, suggesting that the price will remain in the $23,000 to $25,000 range unless there is an increase in whale addresses.

“If the 1,000-10,000 BTC addresses begin to rise the way the 10-100 and 100-1,000 BTC addresses have in the past three months, it would be a breakout sign.”

Santiment warns investors to be cautious as Bitcoin is beginning to show signs of being overbought, despite short-term returns.

At the time of writting Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at around $23,000 with a 3.2% price decline in the past 24 hours.
