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.

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 🙏

Lastly, the insolvent Celsius announced plans to liquidate all customer altcoins from July 1st, converting them into $BTC and $ETH. This action will exert a total selling pressure of $215M on altcoins.

Their largest holdings are:

• $CEL: $70M

$MATIC: $52M

$ADA: $26M

$LINK: $17M

$LTC: $14M

Out of these, $LINK is the only one we hold, and a $17M sale is not likely to exert significant downward pressure, so we're sticking with our current structure
