Shift in investor sentiment

These trends come two days after a Dec. 6 report by Kaiko that highlighted the altcoin market share volume surged to 67% last week, surpassing Bitcoin and Ethereum at 28% and 11%, respectively. 

This data, according to the prominent cryptocurrency market data source, signals a major shift in investor sentiment, pointing to an increasing appetite for cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin (BTC).
