The latest run-up in the cryptocurrency market was primarily driven by gains in major, top-15 altcoins including XRP (XRP), Stellar (XLM), TRON (TRX) and Cardano (ADA).

However, despite the change in investor sentiment, many mid-cap altcoins, which we are describing as coins with market capitalizations between $100 million and $500 million, have lagged behind the larger market over the last week. If a new bull run is truly in the works, this might result in a significant rotation of capital from the top-20 coins into underperforming, mid-cap altcoins.

This thesis is supported by Luke Martin, a well-regarded technical crypto market analyst, who recently publicly stated that he is rotating his exposure of major altcoins, including ADA and TRX, into coins like ICON (ICX).

Taking a look at the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens, many mid-cap altcoins are already putting up decent gains over the past 24 hours.

For instance, Siacoin (SC) is currently up nearly 21%, while Bytecoin (BCN) and ReddCoin (RDD) are up 9.2% and 8.6%, respectively.

Moving forward, investors should watch both the price action of coins like XRP and TRX, as well as the volumes of mid-cap altcoins, to determine which coins are likely to run next.
