  • Pepe leaps in excitement with over 5% increase.

Following the false approval news of a Bitcoin [BTC]  ETF, certain altcoins, including Pepe, experienced a positive impact. Pepe demonstrated a favorable trend, offering a glimpse into the potential influence of the BTC development.

Pepe gains from BTC’s fake approval news

Per a recent Santiment post, certain altcoins experienced a surge in response to the spot ETF approval news initially posted on the SEC’s X handle (previously Twitter).

The announcement led to an initial rise in the BTC price, which was later reversed as the news was confirmed to be false.

According to Santiment’s chart, Pepe maintained its value. At the same time, BTC declined, and Ethereum and Lido were among the other altcoins that benefited from the overall rise.

Additionally, the two-hour timeframe indicated a shift into a bull trend, as suggested by its Relative Strength Index (RSI).

However, on a longer timeframe, Pepe had not fully entered a bull trend, though there was improvement. Currently, its RSI is close to the neutral line and could cross above it if the upward trend persists.

Pepe sees more volume

An examination of Pepe’s volume on Santiment showed a recent slight uptrend. This increase in volume suggests heightened trading activity in response to observed price changes.

Over the last five days, the trade volume remained below $100, but as of this writing, it was over $129 million.
