As expected, this week, the stock market opened in a bear market, with the Dow losing 876 points, S&P falling into bear territory, and the Nasdaq selloff continuing. Bitcoin and Ethereum saw significant bearish momentum on Monday, which continued through Tuesday, with the Bitcoin price losing nearly 25% this week and the Ethereum price down over 30% in the past seven days. However, surprisingly Metaverse crypto coins saw price gains of up to 20% today, signaling a potential altcoin season upcoming for crypto markets.
Altcoin Season Coming for Metaverse and NFT Projects?
While currently, the market is still not in altcoin season, according to the Altcoin Season Index from blockchaincenter.net, we’re starting to see significant bullish momentum for Metaverse and NFT projects.
Even though the Bitcoin price tumbled 4% today, major Metaverse crypto coins like Decentraland (MANA), Theta Network (THETA), The Sandbox (SAND), ApeCoin (APE), and Axie Infinity (AXS) saw double-digit price growth in the past 24 hours. So while it may not be Altcoin season just yet, the Metaverse season may be coming again.
Theta Network (THETA) is the top gainer today regarding Metaverse projects, gaining over 18% and overtaking The Sandbox (SAND) as the second-most valued Metaverse crypto coin on the market with a capitalization of $1.1 billion, following Decentralnad’s $1.5 billion market cap.
Terra 2.0 (LUNA) Manages to Hold Support
In addition, when it comes to popular altcoins, Terra 2.0 (LUNA) managed to hold the current support level of $2.62 even with Bitcoin’s continuing price decline. LUNA gained 6% in the past 24 hours, currently trading at $2.62, with a market capitalization of $550 million.

Selloff Continues but Slowing Down

The Monday market meltdown seems over for now, even with all the grim indicators around. Remember, for every seller, there’s a buyer, and a bear market is an excellent opportunity to load up on your favorite projects and Dollar-Cost average your long-term investments.
