A change in correlations
Crypto has historically shown low correlations with traditional asset classes. 2022 was an exception, when nearly all assets traded down in tandem, but 2023 saw a reversion to historical norms, indicating that crypto can be a source of idiosyncratic risk.
Bitcoin dominance rose again in 2023
Crypto dominance measures a cryptocurrency’s market capitalization as a percentage of the total market cap of all cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin dominance rose in 2023 with a flight to quality and as the market grew increasingly bullish about the approval prospects for spot bitcoin ETFs. Some market participants also view the April 2024 BTC halving as a potentially positive price catalyst.
