Ethereum (ETH) continues to struggle in the ongoing bear market, reaching a new low against its rival Bitcoin (BTC). Recent data from TradingView reveals that the ETH/BTC trading pair has dropped to 0.059 BTC, a significant decline from its peak of 0.088 BTC in December 2021.

Ethereum's market dominance has historically decreased compared to Bitcoin during bearish conditions. Although Ethereum has come close to surpassing Bitcoin in market capitalization, a phenomenon known as the 'flippening,' it has yet to achieve this milestone. The cryptocurrency's smart contract capabilities and the growth of decentralized finance (DeFi) have propelled it closer to Bitcoin in bullish phases, but it seems to be losing ground in the current bearish market.

According to CoinGecko, Bitcoin currently has a market cap of around $525.9 billion and a price of $26,979, while Ethereum lags behind with a market cap of approximately $194.4 billion and a price of $1,617.48. In the past week, Bitcoin experienced a 3.2% growth, while Ethereum's growth was less impressive at 1.1%.
