At the moment, most of the cryptocurrencies are wearing green, again. Bitcoin is up above the $6500 resistance level for some days now, and it is at $8,254 – Bitcoin’s dominance is at 46.7% as of today. One good news is that the general market capitalization of cryptocurrencies is now at $300 Billion. It is quite clear now that Bitcoin is the digital now, but is it safe to say yet that Litecoin is the silver? In this article, we will be taking a good look at Litecoin (LTC).
Is Litecoin the New Silver Coin?
Currently, Litecoin is priced at $86.96 per token, according to CoinMarketCap. It currently has a market capitalization of $5 Billion and is the 7th largest crypto in the cryptocurrency market.
“It always feels strange when I would publish predictions about the movement of the Litecoin market.”
As per Lee, he feels relieved after selling out his shares.
Lee spoke on the transaction speed of Litecoin over Bitcoin. As per him, and the results, the transaction speed of Litecoin is faster and less costly than Bitcoin. On a question about the future of Litecoin, Lee stated that the future is based on mass adoption.
Concluding his interview with the Chinese Golden Finance, Lee stated,
“Bitcoin will be the new gold (always) in the crypto sphere and would be good if Litecoin could get more than 10 percent of Bitcoin’s worth to be the silver coin.”
The Litecoin CEO also emphasized that the market worth of BTC can’t be compared:
“Bitcoin doesn’t face storage problems. It’s very easy to transfer. For me, it’s better than gold in many ways. Being optimistic, the market value of Bitcoin could be more than the $10 trillion market value of Gold. More than 100 times the upside.”
This means that if BTC is the gold in the crypto sphere, then, is LTC the ‘new silver’? Or which one among the other crypto coins is next to Bitcoin when it comes to futuristic value? Lee answered by saying,
“There are many possibilities, but Ripple is somewhat like a diamond because its supply is artificially controlled.”
The Market Analysis of Litecoin
According to Litecoin’s market chart, there is a big breakdown; and that’s as a result of Bitcoin. In the last seven days, Litecoin pulled up and reached the $86 price mark.
There was a significant resistance during the first to second week of July, and it is good news that Litecoin has broken out of that resistance level to a big price of about $86 today – there are signs that Litecoin will be more than its present price next week.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the 4-hour trade today on Litecoin’s chart, LTC was almost at the overbought territory, but it is now back down into the stable mark.
Litecoin is doing quite well at the moment, and it is currently on a sound standpoint. It is essential also to know that if Litecoin would fall, it would only drop to $80 level of support level – there isn’t a possibility LTC will go down than that anytime soon now. The next aim for LTC is to break above the $90 region, which is achieved.
The window of opportunity is gradually closing, and this is the right time to invest in cryptocurrencies such as LTC. Litecoin is set for a bullish run, and there is a high possibility it will move up to the $100 price mark in the next couple of weeks at max.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
