As Bitcoin price recorded a new yearly high, most of the participants in a recent survey shared that they hold the majority of their holdings in Bitcoin rather than altcoins.
Bitcoin traders are basking in profit as October turns out to be a good month for BTC.
46% Of People Allocate More Than 50% To BTC
Crypto commentator and analyst Josh Rager took to Twitter to ask crypto users how much of their portfolio is allocated to Bitcoin. Voters had to choose from one of four options that best describe their portfolio.
The result of the poll was quite interesting. As much as 35% of traders revealed they dedicated less than 10% of their portfolio to the most valuable cryptocurrency. This category is bullish on altcoins and had the highest number of votes in the poll.
A total of 23.2% maintained that Bitcoin holds a significant percentage in their portfolio. According to the results, these people dedicate between 51% to 89% of their portfolio to Bitcoin.
The third-highest category consists of Bitcoin maximalists who are very bullish on Bitcoin. These voters, which made up 22% of the poll result, said that 90 to 100% of their portfolio is allocated to the king coin.
Lastly, the fourth category, consisting of 18% of voters, said they allocate between 11 to 50% to BTC.
In other words, almost 46% of the respondents shared that they hold over half of their portfolio in Bitcoin rather than altcoins.
Bitcoins Hits $13,200, Altcoins Suffer
Elsewhere, altcoins have been experiencing terrible nightmares since last month. An earlier report suggested that Bitcoin’s fresh surge is crushing both altcoins’ prices and market dominance.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin has blasted through important resistance levels, reaching a fresh 2020 high of $13,217 on Binance. The cryptocurrency now holds a market dominance of about 61%.
Although the speculation around is the current surge is caused by money flowing from altcoins into Bitcoin, a fresh analysis debunked has debunked that. As CryptoPotato reported, Bitcoin’s rising value is likely caused by new money entering the crypto market.
Moreover, the latest surge seemed to be primed largely by the news that PayPal, the world’s largest online payment processor, will start allowing users to buy, sell, and hold Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
