Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin (LTC), is getting down and dirty by responding to critics on Twitter who are saddened by the sudden drop of value of LTC from its glory days of above $340. This value of LTC was seen back in January when traders realized that LTC was the fastest means of ‘shooting’ funds across exchanges during the peak trading season of between December 2017 and February 2018. During this period BTC and ETH were faced by high transaction fees as well as congestion on their networks, making LTC the best option for transferring funds between exchanges.

LTC is currently trading at $84 which is a 75% decline from the peak value back in January. It is no wonder LTC HODLers keep blaming Charlie Lee for the decline in the price of LTC ever since he sold all his LTC holdings to concentrate more on the Litecoin Foundation and its operations.

In a tweet, Charlie Lee responded to the criticism as follows.

“I’m trying my best to get LTC to $400 so people like you will stop shitting on me all the time. Who abandoned LTC?!”

The full conversation can be seen below.

Looking at the recent progress of the Litecoin Foundation partnering with TokenPay and consequently acquiring a stake at Germany’s WEB Bank, the partnership between TokenPay and Litecoin will enable the former project to benefit in the following ways:

  • TPAY Cryptocurrency
  • eFin Decentralized Exchange (DEX)
  • TokenSuisse Asset Management
  • WEG Bank FinTech Platform
  • Multisignature Transaction Engine

TokenPay’s decentralized exchange, eFin, will support both XVG and LTC base trading pairs further accelerating the visibility of the two digital assets as well as their adoption in trading. There is also talk of upcoming merchant services and debit cards powered by both Litecoin and the WEB Bank.

In conclusion, the Litecoin foundation and Charlie Lee are pushing more partnerships and use-case scenarios for the digital asset to further increase its utility and visibility in the crypto-verse. As a result, the much awaited $400 value of LTC will become a reality in the near future. There is also the added factor of a possible Bitcoin (BTC) Bull run that is ongoing. If this upward trend of BTC is confirmed, it will bring with it additional volume that will raise the value of our favorite digital assets such as LTC.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
