- Arbitrum price has rallied nearly 50% in the last five days despite Bitcoin’s correction.
- This move is likely to catalyze a massive rally in the next hyped Layer 2 token and ARB’s competitor Optimism.
- OP holders can expect the token to rally nearly 60% to $4.11.
With Arbitrum’s ARB exploding in the last week, things are starting to heat up for altcoins, especially the Layer 2 tokens. With the decline in Bitcoin dominance and capital rotation, altcoins could start to surge soon.
Recipe for alt season
A decline in Bitcoin dominance indicates that capital is moving away from BTC to other altcoins. In a way, it denotes a rotation of capital, aka profits, into other riskier assets. This is why the chart attached below shows a slow uptick in altcoin dominance.
BTC vs Altcoin dominance chart
In addition to the rise in altcoin dominance, investors should note that profits from Arbitrum have a high potential to rotate into other top Layer 2 tokens like Optimism and MATIC. So, the next section will take a look at Optimism price and what to expect from it.
Optimism price ready to explode
Optimism price is attempting to overcome a hurdle around $2.73 and is looking primed for a breakout. A decisive close above $2.73 is likely to open up a path for OP to rally to the next hurdle at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $3.21, which is where the altcoin formed a local top in February 2023.
Overcoming this level would propel Optimism price to the next critical level at $4.11. In total, this move would constitute a 51% gain from the current position at $2.70.
OP/USDT 1-day chart
A daily candlestick close below the $2.18 level will create a lower low and invalidate the bullish thesis for Optimism price. In such a case, OP could slide lower and tag the $1.76 support floor.
