Litecoin as a digital asset that attracts more users to its network due to the fact that it is cheap, fast, and reliable. It is often regarded as a better choice than Bitcoin. Litecoin has gotten the media attention, and as a result, lots of investors want to invest in it.
After a few years of being at the top with other top cryptos, Litecoin is poised to breakout from its current status – but there are so much efforts to be put forward by the team behind it. The cryptocurrency currently stands at $55.55 at the time of writing.
Can LTC Reach $10,000 by 2020?
In November 2017, LTC was trading at $100 per coin. The next month (December), LTC traded much higher as its price surged to $331 per token. Nevertheless, this year has witnessed severe dips not only on Litecoin alone but with other altcoins.
Probably, one of the effects on LTC’s price is due to the market activities of Bitcoin (it’s a fork of Bitcoin, and as like all other cryptocurrencies on the market, Litecoin hasn’t succeeded in decoupling from BTC). With Bitcoin staggering hitting lows of $6000, LTC also has its price going back and forth, hitting the price range of $50-60.
We shouldn’t forget that this year, BTC’s worth increased by 1300%, while LTC’s value had a meteoritic rise and as a result, the crypto spiked by 2400%. As we have witnessed before the end of last year, LTC is gradually recovering from the price dips as Bitcoin is.
Moving forward, despite the fact that LTC is slowly recovering from the pull-backs, it has the potentials to attain $1000 before 2018 closes and also reach $10,000 when we land in the year 2020 – but this all depends on some factors, according to Forbes.
First thing first, Bitcoin’s future growth and spikes would play a key role. It is important to know that a positive turnaround from the world’s leading cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, would positively affect LTC on a right side. This is primarily due to the fact that if there are more trades on Bitcoin’s network, it boosts transactions and then, positive things follow for other altcoins, especially Litecoin.
Secondly, a high mass adoption of Litecoin’s protocol could also affect the price of LTC. Since Litecoin is considered similar to Bitcoin – but faster and cheaper than Bitcoin, it can cause an increased effect on the price of Litecoin on a long-term.
Last but not the least, is the determining factor of Coinbase. We do know that Coinbase is one of the leading crypto exchange in the crypto market today; however, an inflow of investors on Coinbase can also have a positive effect on Litecoin price in the long-term.
Litecoin has better usability compared to Bitcoin. Most investors use Litecoin as a standard for most blockchain dealings such as smart contracts, and so on.
However, Litecoin has the possibility to hit the bulls before the end of this year and on a long-term. If you are confused about investing in Litecoin, then, it is essential that you look at its price and value on long-term. Litecoin is poised for a breakout, and we should not be surprised if we see the bulls kicking earlier than forecasted.

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
