In a tweet on Dec. 3, popular Twitter account Galaxy reinforced optimistic predictions for the largest altcoin, even suggesting that ETH/BTC is about to eclipse its already strong performance with a vertical move.

“I’ve been waiting and publicly charting ETH/BTC on the big picture for years, and now we are finally here,” he told followers alongside a predictive chart.

“$ETH is about to start going into parabolic mode. Just wait and see how crazy things are about to get.”

In USD terms, the picture is similarly promising, Ethereum having set repeated new records in early November and staying broadly within 20% of $5,000 since.

“This in theory should be the part where if strength continues we see that strong run based on structure,” fellow trader Pentoshi tweeted as part of separate comments on Ethereum Friday.

While not everything points to the $5,000 level falling, ETH/USD traded at around $4,550 at the time of writing.

Bitcoin old hands tweak bull case

For Bitcoin, meanwhile, the mood remains conservative.

After several weeks of underwhelming price performance, analysts are beginning to give more credence to “bearish” theses, while ostensibly remaining bullish on BTC.

As Cointelegraph reported, on-chain metrics likewise present little cause for concern, yet small cues, such as long-term holder selling activity, point to decreased conviction.
