Despite several technological advancements, most altcoins have failed to breach their previous highs. Instead, most have retraced their steps back to their yearly lows. These altcoins, strongly mimicking the price action of Bitcoin, have endured heavy losses. However, this time, not all altcoins sustained severe losses.
