The BTC-ETH Dominance metric is an oscillator that tracks the macro outperformance trends between the top two crypto-assets. It considers only Bitcoin’s market cap relative to the combined market cap of Bitcoin plus Ethereum.
Lower values and downtrends indicate an outperformance of ETH over the pink line. This means ETH has been outperforming BTC since early 2021.
