Talking about Bitcoin dominance, crypto trader and investor, Benjamin Blunts says it is the most important chart right now because he says once we break down, it would be a game on for altcoins.

“Bitcoin dominance fell in an impulsive manor and many alts had some cracking runs, but they may have more juice,” said Blunts. He further shares, “if dom falls, alts pump, simple.”
