Litecoin’s Price Maturation

Just about a week ago , Litecoin plunged to the base, trading around $125.

Not long, the market began to move northward and Litecoin was not left behind.

Within the space of 24hrs, Litecoin’s value rose, trading for 138 against dollar. Although the altcoin’s price dipped within the next 5hrs, but it later picked up the batten of rising price and began climbing towards the north gradually. On April 20, Litecoin rose up to $154, a price which it attained only about a month ago.

Although, at present, Litecoin, ranked 6th with a total market cap of over 8 billion has lost 0.74% of its value within 24hrs, trading at $148, but when compared to its price 7days back, it has added 18.09% to its value.

Conclusively, as the old tale of Litecoin appears to be taking a new and favourable shape, the altcoin may soon rise to the zenith.

The daily market trading was breaking records with $1.5 billion only in one day especially Bithumb, OKCoin.cn and Huobi.

Generally, as much anticipated throughout the crypto-world – the latest LTC/BTC climb came due the comments of its creator Charlie Lee about the Lightning Network, its cross-chain-swaps concept and the Segregated Witness activation on BTC network keeping in mind the LTC was the very first to Lock-in SegWit.

However, the value drew back in a short time period – just a couple of hours to the $77.70 mark with a decrease of -7.60 percent on Saturday Sep 2 and a market cap just holding above $4 billion.

This is “the same fate” all Top-Cryptocurrencies (based on market cap) have experienced today after the major upward flow they have appreciated. But, Litecoin at one point was the only virtual currency (out of the top-10) that was increasing and there was much demand requested even all other coins were on the low negative of dropping in minor crashes just in a couple of minutes.

All was concluded with a declining phase even for “the Silver Coin” as the community confidence dropped and the quick-term profit making selling pressure returned strong.
