Historical pattern emerges as Bitcoin value equals 15 ETH again after 6 years

The analysts in the cryptocurrency sector typically rely on chart patterns to try and gauge the price of digital assets in the future, but often interesting trends arise that demonstrate the relationship between some of these assets, including the two largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization – Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

Indeed, despite the price of both Bitcoin and Ethereum being significantly higher today than six years ago, their correlation is at the same level – one BTC is currently worth 15 ETH, as it was at the time, according to the recent data noted by the crypto analyst PlanB and shared on April 20.

On the other hand, Ethereum’s price reflects a 0.25% decline on the day but an increase of 2.75% in the last week, while its gains on the monthly chart amount to 13.11%.
