Bitcoin price recovered from its temporary decline below the $26,000 level that followed Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s hawkish commentary in the Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium. Altcoins in the top 100 assets by market capitalization, are reeling from the aftermath of the price drop and attempting a recovery over the weekend.
AUCTION, LINA and SRM are undervalued, present buying opportunity
On-chain analysts at Santiment used a model to evaluate the MVRV (Market Value to Realized Value) ratio for altcoins, and identified three tokens in the opportunity zone. On-chain intelligence tracker, Santiment, defines the opportunity zone as “buy points” for investors.
Bounce (AUCTION), Linear (LINA) and Serum (SRM) are the three assets that pose an opportunity for traders, according to Santiment’s model, seen in the chart below. The model uses the 30-day, 90-day and six month divergence to spot which altcoins are underbought, overbought and in their opportunity (to buy) and danger (to sell) zones.

According to the model, these three assets are likely to see a recovery in their prices in the short-term. Similarly, there are assets in the danger zone and heading to the danger zone that are overbought and are likely to see further sell-off. A few blue-chip DeFi tokens on the other hand, are currently profitable for traders. Find out more about them here.
Bitcoin, altcoins, stablecoins FAQs
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, a virtual currency designed to serve as money. This form of payment cannot be controlled by any one person, group, or entity, which eliminates the need for third-party participation during financial transactions.
What are altcoins?
Altcoins are any cryptocurrency apart from Bitcoin, but some also regard Ethereum as a non-altcoin because it is from these two cryptocurrencies that forking happens. If this is true, then Litecoin is the first altcoin, forked from the Bitcoin protocol and, therefore, an “improved” version of it.
What are stablecoins?
Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies designed to have a stable price, with their value backed by a reserve of the asset it represents. To achieve this, the value of any one stablecoin is pegged to a commodity or financial instrument, such as the US Dollar (USD), with its supply regulated by an algorithm or demand. The main goal of stablecoins is to provide an on/off-ramp for investors willing to trade and invest in cryptocurrencies. Stablecoins also allow investors to store value since cryptocurrencies, in general, are subject to volatility.
What is Bitcoin Dominance?
Bitcoin dominance is the ratio of Bitcoin's market capitalization to the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies combined. It provides a clear picture of Bitcoin’s interest among investors. A high BTC dominance typically happens before and during a bull run, in which investors resort to investing in relatively stable and high market capitalization cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. A drop in BTC dominance usually means that investors are moving their capital and/or profits to altcoins in a quest for higher returns, which usually triggers an explosion of altcoin rallies.
