I think there is. We saw that when bitcoin is failing. The altcoin market rose that time. But its really depends on the demand of a particular altcoin. The higher the demand. The higher the price you might get. If you buy huge amount. Theres an impact on the price. Thats how it works.

Yes, usually when bitcoin price rises, Altcoin market starts shaking.In general, all the crypto currencies price vary with increase or decrease in demand. But since altcoin market is small, big whales easily pump and dump the price for their profits.We could easily see this in newly released altcoins.

If you mean about the crowdfunding alt and the price of the coin depends on the result of the amount has raised by the crowdfunding itself and will get divide with the total token had been getting sold by the crowdfunding phase.

There is no real factors that determines the price of Altcoins, it is what the market is willing to pay for it though some things like good news, new update, partnership etc may influence in price. Another thing is the whale pumping the price to unrealistic price

In general, what are the reasons that determine the price of altcoins? Does it change according to the bitcoin?

the only thing that can always determine the price of anything is supply and demand, the demand in altcoins is traders wanting to buy it or not, meaning if they are accumulating for a pump or if we are experiencing a pump.

and price of altcoins with bitcoin, depends on which altcoin we are talking about. a handful of them are affected by bitcoin price but the rest are moving independently.

I disagree with you, most of these exchanges used bot to trigger the volume of a token, just look at the significant drop in BTC trade volume on Chinese exchanges. One single factor is responsible for price of these Altcoins

same thing as in all the markets: the price that people are willing to pay, specially considering the costs of production and transport are less of a problem than with common goods. The answer is not much different than "what determines the prices of products and services"

since altcoins are investiments, the perception of how could them value over time influences how much people are willing for a coin

sometimes yes. the price of some altcoins sometimes move against bitcoin meaning when bitcoin price goes up they go down and when bitcoin stops or takes a step back they get pumped.
but these cases are so rare, you can't make a rule out of them.

the only rule you can make out of this market is when pumpers say go up, price goes up and when they are done that altcoin dies.

I think it would be right to say that in general altcoin is a commodity and thus the price of it is determined by demand. I'm talking about the price in BTC, it does change btw. As we all know the "demand", especially for the newly created altcoins, is generated by the developers and by other supporters of a given altcoin.

The people holding the coin and its supply will determine the price of an altcoin. You do not look at the coin supply alone. If the majority of the coin is being held by a whale, you can be sure that its price won't drop as the whale will pump the coin up to be able to cash out. This was why Ethereum price is able to hold steady above 10 dollars despite having such huge supply. Many of the whales and insiders have not cashed out yet.

I don't think so, with altcoin it's different, there are many altcoin that are just pump and dump manipulated from exchanege and die quickly, there is no real supply and demand, for me they look like a good scam coin, that decieve investors in thinking they are a good investment, take a look at all the coin that go on poloniex, they always get a good pump at launch and then dumped, coincidence? i don't think so

The dollar price of the altcoin has an effect. Sometimes the alt will decrease against bitcoin as bitcoin increases against the dollar, to keep the alt's dollar price steady.

Bitcoin has an impact,it's different when you bought 100 altcoin from $700 than when you bought it at $900 mark,but in general it all goes up to the demand of the market,there's this so called wash trade,this is something to look,if a coin is being pump without reason at all or development is happening,the price is faked and whales or dev's manipulating the coin.

Yes, when bitcoin goes up alts go down, when bitcoin goes down alts go down.. Only when bitcoin is stable for a while alts will correct.

All cryptocurrencies go up in value with further adoption + integration of the hash economies.

Once BTC is mined, all rigs will likely lead to alternatives that push everything into spikes, volume mixes and multi-purpose innovation... There are already countries reserving alt-coins into regional things where certain areas boast specific coins and once this gets to every new internet user, this'll climb because of the growth this offer poeple living in poor conditions.

Faucets are like milking a goat in Central China as well as many Eastern or deprived countries and even kids in the family can get started with this to escape what they're in and avoid potential crisis when relatives grow old.

In a simplistic way: the market. More broadly, what determines value is its adoption, that is, everything is regulated by the simplest rule of the market, supply and demand. There are several factors for supply being greater than demand and several other factors for demand being greater than supply. In altcoins generally the news involving the same reflect a lot in value.

There are several factors for supply being greater than demand and several other factors for demand being greater than supply. In altcoins generally the news involving the same reflect a lot in value.

i have got two things to say to this:
1) there is no adoption in altcoin market. out of a couple of thousands of altcoins only less than 10 of them have more application than just trading and those 10 nobody uses them for those applications.
2) i agree with supply and demand but you should remember that demand is this market is what the pumpers and their disciples say it is not as the same meaning we have in other markets.
