Though the entire market cap for cryptocurrencies is at $274 billion, nearly half the value at its hight of $500 billion, Bitcoin itself is regaining its dominance within the market, currently at 45.66%. What this indicates is that investors may be thinking differently about the other altcoins holdings. This year has heralded lots of concern and government regulation, worldwide, in response to the boom of (and dying-off of) ICOs in the market.

As businessinsider.com reported, Joe DiPasquale, founder of BitBull Capital, had this to say:
