Why has the top 10 Cryptocurrencies outperformed Bitcoin?

There are several theories, but most experts agree that altcoins rise faster than Bitcoin in a bull market (period when prices are in an upward trend) due to the demand from investors switching to these in search of even higher returns than what is available from BTC. Many of these altcoins are still in their early phase and often growth can be stellar.

A term that gets thrown around a lot is 'Alt Season', the part of the crypto bull market where many altcoins “moon” (go up quickly in price) against the dollar and Bitcoin. Think December 2017 when some crypto assets rose 100X. Check out a list of crypto jargon here.

The beauty of the DCX10 token is that it captures the return of the 9 most prominent Alts during Alt Season eg, this year alone.

ETH is up ~100% YTD

XRP is up ~50% YTD

BCash is up ~100% YTD

BSV is up ~216% YTD

This inclusion adds rocket fuel to your return as below. Whereas BTC is up “only” ~35%, DCX10 is up ~47%.
