Why Bitcoin and Ethereum are so strong

In my limited research and trading of cryptocurrencies, I have noticed on most trading platforms, if not all of them, that in order to purchase the smaller (small market cap, less volume, light demand, low price) tokens, you first need to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum and then you can buy the smaller ones through BTC or ETH. I’m sure that this is helping to pump up the numbers for BTC and ETH. Does this theory have any merit?

    BTC and ETH are the strongest because of their market caps and trading volume.

    On a whim I put $500 into dogecoin a month ago.. i’ve been really happy so far! Even been able to trade on the swings because the volume is so high.

    Former CIA Director Destroys Yellen's "Illicit" Crypto-Use Fearmongering Narrative

    "he said that one of his key assumptions was that people like (Treasury) Secretary Yellen and Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank, were some of the most informed people on the planet and that their perspectives were grounded in facts. However, in doing his analysis he discovered “just the opposite, that [bitcoin and crypto] weren't rife with illicit activity. In fact, there was probably less illicit activity in the Bitcoin ecosystem than there is in the traditional banking system.”

    Is there a cash online poker site that works well for USA players?

    Have you personally received a payout from that site?

    what assurance do you have that you are not playing against those running the website who can see everyone's hand?

    Depends on the site and software.

    The industry needs heavy regulation.

    I made money playing poker on full tilt.

    Black Friday destroyed a whole industry.

    Now I'm Playing MVIS, Cardano, and Stellar :o:o:o

  • MilesWaitsMilesWaits Posts: 5,296 ✭✭✭✭✭

    She’s back to going up!
    I’m glad I got a few more Ethereum classic coins. That has been my major focus, lately.
    Doge is on hold. Same with LiteCoin, Cardano.
    Interesting times were nearly everything is going up. Got inflation?!

    I don’t think there is any area that you can put your money in that would generate the kind of returns were seeing in the crypto’s right now.
    It is crazy what Ethereum classic and others like Doge are doing right now!
    It seems the main entrées in crypto just tend to share and swap the lead. A little down, and a lot up. Still love the stoic appearance of my silver, though!

    Because Bitcoin and Ethereum buyers are the most religious people in the world. They have faith in something that cannot be seen or felt, and are only valuable when there is power.
