I think it could go either way. BTC on a downtrend could mean that it's time for 2.0 alts to step up to the plate. However, BTC on a downtrend also signals that money is leaving the crypto-ecosystem and investors are losing confidence in cryptos, harming all coins. In the near term for BTSX I'm predicting the price will stay relatively flat while BTC finds its footing again. Some big new news will need to come to give us another leg up toward overtaking litecoin (e.g., new trading software, new announcement, etc). Without that, I can't see BTSX making another surge upward in the near future, especially in this time of shaky BTC price.
