BTC / USD hovers around $ 54,600 as of the time of translation release, less than two days before the end of April. Although the crypto currency recently climbed to $ 56,200 due to rumors that Facebook would announce that it was buying BTC, these rumors turned out to be unfounded and Bitcoin depreciated.

Ether fueling the “inverse correlation” debate

Investors think that Bitcoin, which has been rising continuously for six months, will remain calm for a while. On the other hand, altcoins could take over the scene until autumn.

The largest altcoin Ether (ETH) broke the record again this week, and its correlation with Bitcoin has steadily declined under current conditions.

Popular investor Scott Melker said, “Not only are their correlations decreasing, they have become inversely correlated.” he summed up.
