Litecoin general information

General LTC facts, technical details and general information about Litecoin crypto currency


Litecoin is often referred to as “Bitcoin-Lite”, or “silver” to Bitcoin’s gold. It’s indeed a Bitcoin fork, but though they share the same blockchain, the differences between the two cryptocurrencies are many. Firstly, they rely on different algorithms, and because of a less complex one Litecoin mining is perceived as more accessible for everyday user. Secondly, though the transactions in both chains occur simultaneously, their confirmation time is different: it takes around 9 minutes for Bitcoin’s long-term average transaction to be confirmed vs. 2,5 minutes for a Litecoin one, and such speed gives Litecoin a competitive advantage. After the SegWit protocol implementation in April 2017, the price of Litecoin has grown steadily from $10 to more than $300 in December, making it one the fastest growing cryptocurrencies this year. Litecoin was also a beneficiary of the bitcoin rally – on certain days it enjoyed 20% or event 30% price increases. Thanks to its transaction speed Litecoin is positioned by its founder, Charlee Lee, as a cryptocurrency for everyday payments vs. bitcoin which is better as a long-term store of value.

Litecoin Price Prediction

Cryptocurrencies are replacing Fiat at an increasing rate. It is still an early stage, but for 10 years you will be able to pay all your bills, goods and services with cryptocurrencies.

Mary   2 December, 2018  

Over the weekend the crypto-currency market as a whole showed almost lateral dynamics. The market took a pause and in the coming days should decide on the direction of its further movement. Now the key points are formed on the charts, and it is not yet clear whether they will eventually become reversal points, or they will be continuation points, so we follow the dynamics and at the same time are getting ready to join the game if the line of least resistance for the price movement unfolds up.

DonPedro   27 August, 2018  

The bears are ruling Litecoin (LTC) today, driving the price to $123 - last time we could see that in the beginning of December. On big timeframes MACD and Alligator signal just the start of a coming downtrend, however, I see fixing the profit from short positions now as a good opportunity. I would open long positions only if the price is steadily above the key resistance level $200, and - if $230 turns to be too much for the bulls - will short on the rebound, at $217.
