DASH vs LTC, will DASH ever retain its former glory?

Over the past few days, DASH and LTC breakouts have surprised quite a few as the price of BTC has slipped back and forth after trying to recover back to its recent all-time-high . However, in my opinion the long-term logarithmic trend is the more interesting trend to watch between these two veteran cryptocurrencies.

Over the past few years, a descending channel has formed in favor of Litecoin in the DASH/LTC relationship (as represented by the blue lines). However, Dash has been looking to challenge this trend consistently for the past year. Now it looks as though a long-term wedge (pennant?) may have formed as well after a steep downtrend occurred for DASH at the beginning of 2021, and it now appears as though Dash might be attempting a break out over the next few weeks/months. Whether DASH will successfully break out however is anyone's guess.

I should note as well that although the price of LTC and DASH are nearly identical today, DASH at one point was nearly 27 times the price of LTC (this is the logarithmic chart after all)! Hence it should be interesting to see if DASH is able to compete in any way near its former glory . In the meantime it looks to be an interesting pair to watch to see if either a breakout occurs anytime soon for DASH or if LTC might takeover in the long-term relationship.
