As Bitcoin (BTC) surpasses the $67,000 mark, a wave of optimism is sweeping through the cryptocurrency market, influencing not only Bitcoin itself, but also several altcoins. At the time of publication, the price of BTC was quoted at US$66,781.52, up 1% in the last 24 hours.

This significant increase in Bitcoin’s value is helping to alleviate the impacts of the recent decline leading up to the halving, a period in which the reward for mining Bitcoin is halved, an event that has historically boosted its price.

It is observed that, although Bitcoin’s recovery reflects positively on the entire cryptocurrency market, it is in altcoins considered more speculative that investors seem to redistribute their profits. This trend was especially noticeable with two altcoins, as identified by analytics platform Santiment.

According to Santiment, the two altcoins that have captured investors’ attention are POPCAT and AMP. Both stand out in an already effervescent market, each with its own peculiarities and promises of value.

POPCAT, a meme token operating on the Solana network, has seen an impressive 40% jump in its market capitalization in the last 24 hours. This rise positions POPCAT alongside other high-cap meme tokens such as WIF and DOGE. The community is currently optimistic about POPCAT’s future, but there are concerns about the possibility of a price correction due to the end of the impulsive buying phenomenon known as FOMO (Fear of Missing Out).

On the other hand, AMP has not shown a significant increase in market capitalization, but trading volume for this altcoin has skyrocketed recently. Discussions surrounding the scale and innovative potential of the AMP project suggest there may be growing investor interest in its potential to transform the financial landscape.

Santiment points out that, while sentiment towards AMP is neutral, the outlook for Bitcoin remains promising, with expectations that it can maintain and even increase its market value if the upward trend persists.
