Litecoin (LTC) History and Overview

Litecoin (LTC) History and Overview

Litecoin is one of the first, if not the first, alt-coin (alternative cryptocurrency to Bitcoin), launched on October 13, 2011, and dubbed as “the silver to Bitcoin’s gold”. It is still one of the largest P2P (peer-to-peer) cryptocurrencies based on market capitalization, and it uses blockchain technology to keep track of all transactions in a public, decentralised ledger. 

It is inherently similar to Bitcoin, so it runs on an open-source blockchain and can be mined. They have a few key differences; Litecoin has a much larger supply, and transactions on the network are much faster. It also uses a different hashing algorithm designed to keep mining fair for everyone involved, which has kept it one of the top crypto assets.

The optimism surrounding the potential for a post-halving price surge is further fueled by recent regulatory approvals, such as the green light given to bitcoin-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) by US regulators. These developments have not only boosted investor confidence but also attracted significant inflows of institutional capital into the cryptocurrency market.


However, alongside the optimism, there are also concerns and risks to consider. Sceptics warn of the speculative nature of cryptocurrencies and the lack of proven real-world utility, highlighting the inherent volatility and uncertainty in the market. Moreover, the effectiveness of the halving event in driving price appreciation remains subject to debate, with some arguing that past price movements may not necessarily correlate directly with the halving itself.


$ETH is facing its own set of challenges amidst recent whale activities and regulatory scrutiny. The sell-off by an ICO whale, coupled with investigations by regulatory authorities, has injected uncertainty into the Ethereum market. Despite these challenges, Ethereum remains a cornerstone of the crypto ecosystem, with its blockchain serving as a foundation for decentralised applications (DApps) and smart contracts. As the industry awaits further developments, the Ethereum community continues to innovate and adapt to emerging trends and regulatory landscapes.


$LTC recently faced a slight decline in its price, dipping below the $80 mark. Despite this, its current price stands at $81.70, showing a 2% increase over the past 24 hours. However, Litecoin has exhibited significant volatility, with its price ranging from $76.50 to $82.20 within the same timeframe. This volatility underscores the challenges investors encounter in navigating the dynamic cryptocurrency market. Analysing key metrics such as market capitalization, trading volume, and supply dynamics provides insights into Litecoin's perceived value and potential future growth. Factors influencing Litecoin's price movements include market sentiment, investor confidence, news events, and technological advancements within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Monitoring these factors is essential for understanding Litecoin's trajectory and making informed investment decisions.

Dear followers,


After Michael Sailor, now even Vitalik is bullish on Bitcoin Ordinals. The pivot is adjusting accordingly. We expect 90% of altcoins to perish within the next 12-24 months.

Moonity will bet on a handful of the remaining ones.


Quick Re-Balance update

/rm $ENJ with recursive inscriptions (also possible on litecoin) the narrative around tokenised gaming assets shifted away from altcoins!


/add +.88% $LTC | + .39% $GRT | +.56% $PUNDIX


The pivot is almost complete.


Stay course & shine on 🙏
