With a relatively stable Bitcoin (BTC) comes the possibility of the rest of our favorite coins and tokens to exhibit some profitable gains. Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at $6.749 and looks like testing the $7,000 resistance level very soon. This means that the total crypto market capitalization might also go above $300 Billion from the current levels of $276 Billion.
It is with such optimism of a healthy crypto market, that it might be time to reconsider getting some Litecoin (LTC) while the price is relatively low. The digital asset that is sometimes called Bitcoin’s little brother, is currently trading at $88 and up 2.81% in the last 24 hours. LTC has not been at these levels since late November last year. The coin might have bottomed out on June 29th this year, when it was valued at around $74.
The last crypto rally in late December last year and early January this year, found Litecoin doing tremendously well above $300 with a peak value of $364 on December 19th, 2017.
But will it really reach those levels again?
One promising indicator that Litecoin and the entire crypto markets might be headed for another rally, is the recent announcement by Coinbase to offer secure crypto storage to high net individuals and hedge funds who want to start investing in cryptocurrencies. This new service has been dubbed Coinbase Custody and so far supports the 5 coins that are supported by the exchange: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC).
This means that LTC will be a choice for the high net individuals and institutional investors willing to use Coinbase’s services. As a result, LTC will be bought and held in bulk leading to a reduction of the general circulating supply as well as an increase in value as demand continues to grow.
Coinbase CEO showed his excitement with regards to the new service when he tweeted the following:
Deposits are now rolling in for https://t.co/QrWwN6uRAu we're live! Crypto is quickly becoming an institutional asset class. If you run a fund, sign up for more info on storing crypto. https://t.co/wkEMaPYbke

It is clear that there is a lot of bullish sentiment not only within the organization of Coinbase but as well as on Wallstreet through the numerous hedge funds and the high net individuals who simply want to buy and HODL for speculation purposes. LTC will be one of the 5 digital assets available for them thus giving the coin the much-needed exposure.
