GME Token Jumps 73%, Altcoin Surge Anticipated
  • GameStop’s stock surge sparks renewed interest in altcoins, recalling the 2021 rally pattern.
  • GME’s value jumps 73.68%, boosting its market cap and attracting investor attention.
  • Indicators show strong buying pressure and bullish momentum for the GME token.

Retail investor darling GameStop (GME.N) has seen its stock soar for the third consecutive day as posts from Keith Gill, known as “Roaring Kitty,” have sparked chatter about his return to the forefront of the meme stock frenzy. This surge has reignited interest in the potential ripple effects on the cryptocurrency market, particularly altcoins.

As reported by Watcher Guru, GameStop’s stock outshined Bitcoin’s annual returns in a single day on Wednesday. This impressive performance has brought back memories of the 2021 meme stock rally. During that cycle, an altcoin surge followed the GameStop short squeeze. Historical chart patterns suggest a similar setup might be forming, raising hopes among crypto enthusiasts.

Experts Eye Altcoin Surge 

Crypto analyst CryptoAmsterdam highlighted this potential in a May 14 post on X (formerly Twitter), pointing out that the GameStop event catalyzed the 2021 altcoin rally. In his post, CryptoAmsterdam shared a chart comparing the 2021 GameStop pump and subsequent altcoin rise with current market conditions. 

He noted that money flows in a predictable pattern, hinting at a possible repeat of the 2021 scenario. Moreover, the market capitalization of altcoins is presently positioned in a formation similar to the 2021 setup. 

CryptoAmsterdam referenced this in a subsequent post, emphasizing the potential for a new altcoin bull cycle. This alignment has caught the attention of investors looking for opportunities in the crypto market.

In related news, despite Wall Street halting GameStop stock trading, the $GME token remains tradable on platforms like CoinEx. Ali, another analyst, mentioned this on X, noting that traders should keep an eye on the TD Sequential indicator. He added that the tool recently gave a sell signal on the GME 4-hour chart, indicating a brief correction might come before higher highs.
