Litecoin Price Stats - Ltc Value & Live Charts - Etoro
One of the worlds top 10 cryptocurrencies, Litecoin (LTC), re-joined the $1 billion market cap club in 2017, after first reaching it in 2013. Litecoins infrastructure is very similar to that of Bitcoin and as such, is highly affected by changes in Bitcoin price. Moreover, since it is relatively smaller than Bitcoin, it still hasnt been adopted by many traders and exchanges. It therefore has great growth potential. Since it was created originally as an offshoot of Bitcoin, its infrastructure, which includes improvements over that of Bitcoin, has received praise for its faster processing times and scalability. Who should include Litecoin in their portfolios?
- Cryptocurrency traders: With an increasing selection of cryptocurrencies available, investing in Litecoin could be a part of a balanced cryptocurrency portfolio.
- Currency traders: The use of Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies is becoming increasingly widespread as a hedging tool for traditional currency traders.
- Long-term investors: Some analysts predict the cryptocurrency market will continue to grow and increase in value. Therefore, buying and holding Litecoin might be a good long-term investment.
- Fintech aficionados: As the cryptocurrency market expands and more governments and institutions legitimise it as a payment method, Litecoin could increase in popularity and be in higher demand.

In contrast, bitcoin remains the market leader at $10,129 with the highest market cap at $170 billion. Could Litecoin reach the same high as bitcoin? Michael LaVered of cryptocurrency news site Oracle Times says Litecoin could potentially overtake in bitcoin in price as the latter is having difficulty scaling to the level needed for general commerce with high fees and longer transaction times. He wrote today: The litecoin could be the solution. Litecoin combines all of the benefits of Bitcoin, but with shorter transaction times and lower fees. It has been on the forefront of bitcoin innovations, implementing SegWit [soft fork change in Bitcoin] early last year and now offering the possibility of lightning network and atomic swaps.

Litecoin Price Analysis: LTC/USD Approaching Key Break Litecoin price has moved above the $150 support area against the US Dollar. LTC/USD may soon make the next move either above $165 or below $155. Litecoin price is holding the $155-150 support area nicely (Data feed of Kraken) against the US Dollar. There is a key contracting triangle forming with current resistance at $164 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. The pair must stay above the $155 support level to avoid any further declines in the near term. There was a decent upside recovery above the $150 level in litecoin price against the US dollar. The LTC/USD pair traded higher and even tested the $175 resistance before starting a downside correction. There was a downside push and the price moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upside wave from the $137 swing low to $175 swing high. The decline was such that the price moved below the $165 support. Cryptocurrency charts and prices provided by TradingView More importantly, the price traded below the $160 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the downside move was protected by the $155-156 support area. Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upside wave from the $137 swing low to $175 swing high also acted as a support. There was a strong buying interest near the $155 level and the price held the ground. On the upside, the $162 level and the 100 hourly SMA is currently acting as a resistance. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with current resistance at $164 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Stellar, Litecoin, Cardano, Neo, Eos: Price Analysis, March 26
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Stellar, Litecoin, Cardano, NEO, EOS: Price Analysis, March 26 Technical analysis on top 9 cryptocurrencies. The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph.com. Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision. The market data is provided by the HitBTC exchange. During a bear market, fear grips the investors, resulting in a long liquidation. While some believe that the bubble in Bitcoin has burst, others believe that the current fall is only a correction, which will lead to higher prices later in the year. Founder and chairman of investment firm LDJ Capital, David Drake believes that Bitcoin will rally to $30,000 by the year-end. That is a whopping 262 percent return from the current levels. Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter and Square, believes that Bitcoin can replace the fiat currencies within a decade. A few positive voices in a sea of gloom is a welcome change. Lets see if the short-term picture is improving or not. Though Bitcoin broke out of the descending channel on March 20, it could not cross above the 20-day EMA. Currently, prices are again threatening to dip back into the channel, which is a bearish development. Our long positions initiated at $8,800 are trading under a loss. As the setup looks negative, we suggest booking a loss on 50 percent of the open positions and holding the rest with the stops at $7,600. The next support on the downside is the March 18 lows of $7,715, below which, a retest of the February 06 lows of $6,075.04 is possible. Our bearish view on the BTC/USD pair will be invalidated if prices breakout and sustain above the 50-day SMA. Ethereum is in a strong down Continue reading >>
Litecoin Price Inches Up Again As Other Markets Struggle
With all cryptocurrency markets in a very odd state once again, it will be interesting to see what the future holds. The Bitcoin price is moving up, yet half of the top 15 markets are losing value as of right now. The Litecoin price is one of the few rare exceptions in this regard. More specifically, we see the Litecoin price rise by 3.73% in the past 24 hours, pushing the value to just over $214. Litecoin Price Tries to Note Positive Momentum So far, it seems as if this weekend may turn out slightly catastrophic for most cryptocurrency markets once again. Even though the Bitcoin price is performing surprisingly well, most other top currencies are stuck in limbo as of right now. Litecoin is one of the few positive exceptions in this regard, although it seems to mainly mimic Bitcoins momentum as of right now. The Litecoin price gains over the past 24 hours are virtually identical percentage-wise to that of Bitcoin. That does not have to be a bad thing per se. After all, Litecoin still gained 0.35% over Bitcoin in the LTC/BTC ratio, although that difference may be neglectable when looking at the bigger picture. For now, it is good to see Litecoin not lose value over Bitcoin unlike all of the other altcoins on the market right now. Whether or not this means we will see some further solid Litecoin price gains, remains to be determined. Anything is possible at this stage, depending on how the LTC/BTC ratio evolves in the coming hours and days. As of right now, we are now looking at a Litecoin price of $214. That is a rather solid trend, although the same LTC was worth $226 just a few days ago. All markets are still pretty volatile as we speak, as can be seen from the Litecoin price chart over the past week. With the value ranging from $196 to $228 over the span of just seve Continue reading >>

Litecoin Booms In February But 'golden' Crypto Takes Price Podium
Litecoin Booms in February But 'Golden' Crypto Takes Price Podium Mar 1, 2018 at 13:30 UTC|UpdatedMar 2, 2018 at 13:38 UTC Dismal? Not quite, but the crypto markets had a rough ride in February. What began with a sell-off in bitcoin, one that pushed the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies to a 10-week low of $276 billion, has ended in a seeming recovery , with the total value hitting $450 billion Thursday to end February trading. However, the numbers don't exactly tell the whole story. Comparing performance to January, the market saw a decline of 8.5 percent month-over-month, and a decline of 45.78 percent from its 2018 record high of $830 billion. But that's not to say there weren't gains to be had. Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, saw a "V-shaped" recovery, while fifth-place litecoin notched monthly gains. Still, it was the lesser-known cryptocurrencies that performed best amid the broad-based gloom and doom, suggesting that after a flurry of retail trading to end 2017, enthusiasts are perhaps once again the dominant market force. DigixDao (DGD), an ethereum-based token, gained a staggering 136 percent last month, rising 90 percent in the last week alone to hit an all-time high of $597.66 Wednesday, according to CoinMarketCap . Courtesy of the meteoric increase, DGD is now the 25th largest cryptocurrency by per market capitalization, putting into large-cap territory. For those new to asset's climb up the charts, the team behind the project are creating a new token called DigixGold (DGX), which will be backed by physical gold. "Every DGX will be backed by 1 gram of LBMA-approved bullion," as per the official website , which claims the coin will be released by the end of the first quarter. Holders of DGD can vote and a Continue reading >>
Litecoin Price Drop: Why Is Litecoin Falling? What Is Litepay?
Litecoin price drop: Why is Litecoin falling? What is Litepay? Litecoin price drop: Why is Litecoin falling? What is Litepay? LITECOINS price has seen a significant drop today after the payment processor LitePay informed investors it has closed up shop. Why is Litecoin falling? And what is Litepay? LTC, the third most popular cryptocurrency, fell down to $141 this morning, having lost nearly 10 percent of its value in the last 24 hours. This is after the currency already dropped by more than 37 percent over the last year, according to CoinMarketGroup. The downward trend is experienced across the board, with the cryptocurrency market suffering a slump amid regulation speculation. Earlier in February, Litecoin was boosted with the news LitePay had announced its merchant payment processing system would be up and working by February 26. Litecoin price drop: Why is Litecoin falling? When the system didnt go live,LitePayeventually sent an email to all current customers on March 5, stating it was checking all perspective merchants and suspending card registrations due to the negative perception and drastic actions card issuers have towards cryptocurrency companies. This statement was in reaction to an announcement made by Mastercard and Visa that they were changing the way cryptocurrency transactions would be processed from purchases to cash advances resulting in more fees for users. This was followed up with a tweet by the cryptocurrencys founder Charlie Lee apologizing for the misstep. Mr. Lee tweeted that: Like everyone else, we got too excited about something that was too good to be true and we optimistically overlooked many of the warning signs. "I am sorry for having hyped up this company and vow to do better due diligence in the future. Litecoin isnt the only currency Continue reading >>
Litecoin Price Analysis: Ltc/usd Remains At Risk
Litecoin Price Analysis: LTC/USD Remains at Risk Litecoin price failed to hold the $155 support and declined against the US Dollar. LTC/USD remains at a risk of more losses as long as it is below $150. Litecoin price struggled to move higher and declined below a major support at $155-150 (Data feed of Kraken) against the US Dollar. There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $155 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. The pair may continue to move down and it could even break the recent low of $137 in the near term. There was no upside move in litecoin price above the $165 resistance against the US dollar. The LTC/USD pair started a downside move and traded below the $155 and $150 support levels. The downside move was substantial as the price even broke the $140 level. Now, the price is well below the $150 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is a minor correction underway from the $137 low. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $163 high to $137 low. Any major upsides are likely to be capped since there are many hurdles on the upside near the $150 and $155 levels. The stated levels were supports previously and now they will protect gains above $155. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $155 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $163 high to $137 low is positioned near the $150 level. Therefore, the $150 level may perhaps stop the current upside wave. On the downside, the recent low of $137 is a short-term support. A break and close below the mentioned 137 level could open the doors for more losses towards $125. Overall, the current price action is bearish below $150 and litecoi Continue reading >>
Charlie Lee, Litecoin Foundation Apologize After Litepay Vanishes
Join our community of 10 000 traders on Hacked.com for just $39 per month. Litecoin creator Charlie Lee and the Litecoin Foundation have each apologized for failing to conduct due diligence on LTC-based payment processing startup LitePay, which has sparked allegations of conducting an exit scam due to its abrupt closure. As CCN reported , the Litecoin price had surged in mid-February on news that LitePay which purported to offer both merchant services and an LTC-funded debit card would launch later in the month. However, that launch never came, and in a statement dated March 26, the Litecoin Foundation revealed that LitePay CEO Kenneth Asare had informed them that he had ceased all operations and intended to sell the company, an announcement that came less than two weeks after Asare held a much-lampooned Reddit AMA in which he gave few specifics about the project and was accused of evading questions. From the Litecoin Foundations statement: Prior to [being told that LitePay was ceasing operations], the foundation had approached Kenneth regarding his less than transparent nature with the company and to express our, and the communitys, concerns regarding his recent Reddit AMA. It was at this time that Kenneth asked the foundation for more funds to continue operations. The foundation refused any further funding as he was unable to provide a satisfactory picture of where the money had been spent and refused to go into exact details about the company and show objective evidence to back up his statements. We are greatly disheartened that this saga has ended in this way and we apologize for not doing enough due diligence that could have uncovered some of these issues earlier, the statement continued. We are currently working hard to tighten our due diligence practices and ens Continue reading >>
Litecoin Price In Usd | Real Time Litecoin Chart | Kitco
Litecoin is a decentralized digital currency, with all transactions recorded on the public blockchain. It is an open source software project, similar to Bitcoin, often said to be the silver to Bitcoins gold. Litecoin was created in October 2011 by former Google engineer, Charles Lee. It was mainly created in order to improve upon Bitcoin, to which it differs slightly. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LITECOIN AND BITCOIN? In comparison to Bitcoins 21 million coin limit, Litecoin has a coin limit of 84 million. Also, they refer to different algorithms, as Litecoin uses Scrypt while Bitcoin uses SHA-256. The main difference, however, involves the processing block time. The mean block time for Bitcoin is 10 minutes, while for Litecoin it is 2.5 minutes. Like Bitcoin, you can buy Litecoins for fiat on a number of exchanges. You are also able to exchange bitcoins for Litecoins. As opposed to Bitcoin, the choice of Litecoin wallets is limited and could be problematic. For longer-term storage, it is suggested to setup a Litecoin paper wallet. The term altcoins is short for alternative coins. Given that Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency to surface in the market, the other digital currencies that emerged are referred to as altcoins. A blockchain is a digital ledger recording cryptocurrency transactions, maintaining records referred to as blocks in a linear, chronological order. Continue reading >>
