Currently, we see the third-worst bear market in the crypto history (did you know?), and Litecoin (LTC) is presently at $63.81, this is an optimistic question to be sure. But let’s think about it anyway, and come up with a reasonable answer.
If Litecoin reached the thousand dollar mark, that would need a market capitalization of 58 billion at the current supply or 84 billion if the maximum number of tokens is in circulation. How out of reach is that?
Litecoin‘s highest market capitalization reached 20 billion dollars at the time its price was at its historical highest point so, even when everything was peachy, it was still only a third of what would be needed to reach the thousand dollar milestone.
Several things would be necessary for this to happen. First, we’ll need a group of essential investors (or a group of very many investors) who believe wholeheartedly in Litecoin’s prospects as a long-term project concerning usefulness and reliability.
That would bring tons of money into the Litecoin pool while, at the same time, it would slow sales down. If sales diminish sufficiently, the token supply could become limited enough so that it appreciates just because of scarcity.
But for that, Litecoin holders must feel sure that they should hold on to their coins no matter what happens. Second, Litecoin’s adoption must be more extensive, faster, so that the token is more useful and it attracts (even unknowingly) new users that wouldn’t dream about going into the crypto game otherwise.
Litecoin has already launched a campaign to encourage people to use Litecoins to pay for goods and services. Adoption and use drive demand up, and demand is what raises the price. Litecoin’s leadership is keenly aware of this fact which is one of the reasons why they bought a bank in Germany (well, not the whole bank, just 9.99% but that’s enough for our purposes).
This came about after somebody suggested to Litecoin’s creator to get a bank to issue a Litecoin debit card. It’s a fantastic idea regarding thrusting adoption forward. If you have Litecoins and you can use them through a debit card in the street, then the last advantage that fiat currencies have over digital ones is finished.
You would not be able only to use your tokens online, but also on the street, in just the same way you use banknotes and metallic coins. If Litecoin can pull the debit card trick off, that will go a very long way in reaching the thousand dollar mark.
They’re not alone in this as both Stellar Lumens and Ripple already have new partners that intend to issue crypto-based debit cards. But Stellar and Ripple still don’t own a bank or significant shares in one.
And then, here’s what you can do. Just spread the word. Don’t lie, be honest. Being involved in the cryptosphere is interesting, it’s challenging, it’s a lot of fun, and it could make you very rich not too long from now.
But it’s also hazardous and unpredictable, and because of the lack of regulation, it’s something of a wilderness. Talk to your friends and family about this subject, bring it up as part of your regular conversation. If you’re knowledgeable and honest, you’ll generate interest and, who knows, maybe you’d be doing them a favor.
Litecoin is a stable coin, it’s useful in the real world, it has excellent leadership, and it’s securing all the right partnerships. There is no reason for it not to go all the way up to a thousand dollars sooner or later.
Just think about this: Bitcoin reached a low of 67.809 at some point (which means it was cheaper than Litecoin was only a couple of days ago), and it’s now worth seven times a thousand dollars, without ever having all the advantages Litecoin currently has. Litecoin will get there. It’s more or less unavoidable.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.
Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world. Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
