Litecoin Gemini listing nothing short than gold for LTC, here’s why

Litecoin LTC

Litecoin has been around the news lately, and this is due to the latest announcement of it being listed on Gemini, a New York-based startup headed by the Winklevoss twins.

The Exchange made this major announcement through a tweet that it will be listing Litecoin (LTC) on its platform in a months’ time. It’s worth noting that the decision was made during the recent Litecoin Summit held in San Francisco, from Gemini Trust Twitter account.

Litecoin’s listing on Gemini Exchange is a great news as the digital asset itself has been subject to criticisms. Its founder, Charlie Lee, recently has addressed the distorted information of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) surrounding Litecoin.

The Influence of Litecoin Getting listed on Gemini Exchange

Litecoin has been in a dwindling position, and it is striving hard to get a good place in the crypto market which has lots of cryptocurrencies with great utilities. However, Litecoin’s listing on Gemini is a considerable feat for the coin.

Gemini Exchange is one of the best crypto-exchanges in the cryptocurrency market today. The exchange itself has the backing of SEC, and it’s a favorite among crypto enthusiasts.

More importantly, other cryptocurrencies that are already on the platform have boosted the trust of their users or investors in a well-known manner. As a result of that, Litecoin (LTC) investors will also get a boost on faith despite the digital asset still struggles to go beyond the $60 price mark.

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and ZCash, have been featured by Gemini before Litecoin. With this, Litecoin will join Gemini’s marketplace to boost its stance in the crypto market. Also, this listing will increase Litecoin’s liquidity for its users.

Litecoin’s listing on Gemini Exchange will boom its position, but there is a possibility that it may not move its price to its all-time highs. Last week, Litecoin managed to break above the last major down-trendline, which is a very good sign for LTC but it is heading into the consolidation box.

On the four-hour chart, the consolidation box upper line is also supported with different EMA’s which all starts to work at the support levels. It is necessary to know that at the wake of the Gemini’s announcement of listing LTC, the price of LTC started going well, thus, finding support around $58.5.

More Than 9 Payment Processors Now Support LTC

Charlie Lee has announced that more than nine payment processors now support Litecoin. Some of them are Aliant Payment, BTCPay, Coinbase, CoinGate, CoinPayments, Globee, GoCoin LTCPay, and TravelbyBit. And now, the crypto securing a place on a well-known exchange like Gemini at the time when it’s caught in a lot of FUD might help ease things around it.

The Litecoin CEO have further replied to the FUD surrounding Litecoin that the number of daily transactions has increased. Charlie said in a Tweet:

Litecoin processes $200MM worth of transactions each day. And the network has worked flawlessly for seven years! Litecoin works today as a global decentralized sound money that can’t be censored can’t be reversed or taken away, can’t be counterfeited, and can’t be devalued.”

At the press time, LTC is priced at $55.39 with a market capitalization of $3,237,304,950 after losing its value by 4.35% in the last 24 hours.

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. One of the ways to have a successful trading…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

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…
