Solana, Cardano and Polkadot traders are cycling into small caps for massive returns
Ethereum network’s alternatives and large market capitalization cryptocurrencies like Solana, Cardano and Polkadot yielded massive gains for holders in the first three weeks of January 2023. Enjoying a relatively high correlation with Bitcoin, these cryptocurrencies witnessed a rally since the beginning of 2023.
Interestingly, analysts at crypto intelligence firm Santiment have noted a shift in traders’ interests. Experts identified that traders from the Solana, Cardano and Polkadot networks are cycling into small market capitalization tokens, lesser-known cryptocurrencies like CBG, SLP, TRADE, RBN, among others.
The daily active address count for these tokens climbed steadily since January 17, as seen in the chart below. The increase in address activity is accompanied by a price rally, with nearly double-digit overnight gains in most of the small-cap tokens on the list.
Small Caps witness spike in activity
The trend identified by experts at Santiment marks a shift in traders’ outlook on small-cap tokens. Traders are hunting undervalued tokens with bullish potential as diversification opportunities and risk mitigation. Most of the small market cap tokens seen in the chart above have a relatively low correlation with Bitcoin, this could help reduce risk.
