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.

Conclusion

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.

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…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
