Bitcoin currencies are first used in the blockchain system and of course the price is still the best while Altcoin is an alternative coin created as a companion to bitcoin

Bitcoin is the “original” cryptocurrency and ultimately responsible for the invention of blockchain technology.
Altcoins are generally defined as “everything else.” Although some might not refer to Ethereum as an altcoin, but certainly the 1500 other coins out there are considered “alts.”

There's a huge difference between Bitcoin and Altcoin. Bitcoin is the father of all cryptocurrency which altcoins depend on. Let's Bitcoin is the currency of all the coins in the cryptocurrency space. In terms of Technology, Bitcoin is the first yet it isn't the most advanced which is why we have altcoins to make transactions better that Bitcoin is not yet good at.

Both bitcoin and altcoin are the virtual currency. Bitcoin is bitcoin itself, but altcoin consists of many coins (for example BCH, LTC, and ETH). So according to me, altcoin is the alternative /derivative of bitcoin. Actually, it's almost the same between a gold and the other metals.
