Many cryptocurrencies are proving to be resilient in the face of the FTX trauma, with some top altcoins like Ethereum (up 2.20%) and Ripple (up 5.17%) recording gains in the past 24 hours. Meanwhile, Bitcoin continues to hover around $16,500 after hitting a new two-year low of $15,480 earlier this week. Another top altcoin, BNB is also in the green, up around 1% in the past day and holding its gains of 11%+ over the past week.
Why Some Altcoins Are Rallying
The relative resilience of some altcoins could be due to a combination of factors, including lower-than-expected inflation in October, a Fed pivot on interest rates, and publicly expressed bullish sentiment from investors such as Ark Invest founder, CEO, and CIO Cathie Wood, and MicroStrategy chairman Michael Saylor. Wood has continued to express optimism regarding the future price potential of Bitcoin and other digital assets despite the FTX fiasco.

Saylor, meanwhile, has argued that the FTX crash could actually benefit Bitcoin due to its decentralized nature, which eliminates the need for intermediaries and trust-based relationships like centralized exchanges.
“It means you don’t have to trust the FTXs of the world,” Saylor explained to Fox Business’ ‘Making Money with Charles Payne‘ on Nov. 22. “So yeah, I am a big believer because I believe that although crypto in this case may have been the problem, bitcoin is still the solution.”
The performance of many altcoins suggests that there may even be underlying demand for digital assets as investors seek out alternative investments amid a turbulent macroeconomic environment. Additionally, with jurisdictions across the world beginning to adopt regulatory frameworks towards cryptocurrencies, some investors may be betting that digital assets could continue to gain mainstream acceptance.
Crypto investors may wish to be cautious in the current market, but there may be room for further gains if macroeconomic conditions hold steady. One strategy would be to bottom fish and look for investment opportunities in crypto assets that have been undervalued due to the FTX crash. One could imagine Ethereum and BNB, for example, rebounding intensely in the event of a market rally.
I really think so, and I’m not trying to be overly bullish here – we’ve a pivot in the narrative from central banks, increasing M2 (that’s super important for #crypto), and the FTX collapse likely accelerated policy in #crypto – all very bullish for fwd looking assets#Saitama pic.twitter.com/fw4KeR0KYN

Overall, while the FTX debacle has had a huge impact on the cryptocurrency market, some top altcoins have managed to find support despite the turmoil and have continued to bounce back today. With further developments in regulation, investor sentiment, and macroeconomic conditions likely to affect prices going forward, it remains to be seen how these currencies will perform in the future if macroeconomic conditions risk worsening and FTX fallout uncertainties in the greater crypto markets continue.
