As noted by the prominent crypto-asset analyst during the move upwards, ETH/BTC’s bounce came at the pivotal level. the charts show that the bounce allowed ETH to maintain a level of macro importance against BTC which held during the late 2017 correction, along with the other corrections in the ETH history.
