Bitcoin is finding it difficult to sustain the relief rally, which could put pressure on several altcoins in the near term.

Bitcoin (BTC) faced intense selling pressure last week, but a positive sign is that lower levels near $61,000 witnessed solid buying by the bulls. This suggests that the sentiment remains positive, and traders are viewing the dips as a buying opportunity.
