The crypto market is finally showing some green numbers after being in the red for a while, a fact that caused nothing but the concern in the minds of many crypto enthusiasts and investors. Truth be told, during the first six months of the year there was a point where it seemed just like putting a bet on crypto would be a worthless action, but that is precisely what’s changing right now.
The last days have been pretty much positive for the crypto world showing some of the most remarkable momentums, especially, in the leader of the sector Bitcoin (BTC), which as we know has a significant influence on the rest of the market, so in terms of general growth the crypto verse is just giving its best these days.
In this sense, one of the coins that have shown as well some great moves is nothing but Litecoin (LTC), which for the last two days has been gaining momentum. In fact, at the moment of writing the price of the token according to Coinmarketcap is $68.2, and the crypto has increased by 3.98 percent in just the last 24 hours, a fact that suggests the coin may close the day with a price of 70 dollars or even more.
In addition to this, Litecoin is working on the best updates for the community, so there are strong reasons to believe that the coin will continue its rise to the top. Let’s find out the main details behind the works of the crypto.
Litecoin (LTC) developments
Although the positive sentiment is practically a general thing right now, we can’t deny that Litecoin has worked in the best updates to gain momentum as well. So partially, the latest results are influenced as well by some of the strategies deployed.
For starters, we can mention the partnership Litecoin made with Crypto Facilities to offer futures contracts to the whole community. In this sense, despite the promptness of the addition, Crypto Facilities thinks Litecoin may be a crucial key for futures contracts, and this without counting the fact that the LTC token is related to the USD currency, which, of course, can be used as an opportunity for exposure.
Secondly, Daniel McNally showed a new cross-chain conversion involving Bitcoin and Litecoin last week, and for that, he has used the Lightning Network technology, so it shows a significant advancement as the transference was made without having any interference, which, of course, puts Litecoin in a great position.
However, the most significant update got to be the alliance with the TenX cryptocurrency debit card, a partnership that will help LTC users to put their holdings in the card and be able to use it freely for shopping any kind of goods and services.
In this sense, it was known by a Tweet of TenX that the company is already testing the card, so this could be a major hit for the LTC price. The message reads:
First #TenX cards are being shipped here in Singapore to internal team members right now. We want to make sure all processes are streamlined to scale and quality of packaging and the cards are world-class. Stay tuned for updates. #TenXyourLife #crypto #bitcoin #ethereum #litecoin pic.twitter.com/W7HRMoUeJO

In general terms, we can observe a great performance of the market, but talking about litecoin (LTC) specifically, we can be quite sure (no guarantee in crypto-space) that the coin might continue its rise as all the ground is set to make it possible. LTC enthusiasts, get ready, great things are probably coming for your coin.

TokenPay (TPAY), Litecoin, and Verge (XVG) alliance about to transpire
Ever since the cryptocurrency sphere was met with the news of the partnership between Litecoin Foundation, TokenPay, and Verge (XVG), the idea of them coming together has been among the most controversial news to ever surface in the cryptocurrency world.
The collaboration managed to even draw the attention of one of the most renowned crypto-influencer and bitcoin campaigner, Tone Vays. In his usual style, Tone took to Twitter handle on hearing the news, tweeting and expressing his disapproval while criticizing the creators of the three cryptocurrencies for allowing such a move to occur.
In retaliation to the attacks from Tone, Charlie Lee, the MD, and founder of Litecoin (LTC) posted his clarification on Reddit on the 17th July in regards to the partnership. Litecoin’s CEO started by explaining the dissimilarities between Litecoin as a currency and Litecoin as a company.
In his remarks, he said that Litecoin as a blockchain and crypto network is a decentralized network, whereas Litecoin Foundation as a company is a centralized non-profit institution whose goal is to ensure Litecoin (LTC) is developed, adopted, and used. Charlie also mentioned that Litecoin’s cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies did not require his direct services at the moment hence his concentration on Litecoin Foundation.
Charlie Lee made his remarks known saying:
“If Litecoin Foundation (LF) is exposed to not doing a good job, nothing should prevent another organisation to step in and do a better job. This is…
Here’s Why This Coin Still Has Wings (WINGS)
WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.
Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.
What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.
The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…
4 Things That Will Make An Altcoin Successful
Since the crypto craze began, there have been hundreds of altcoins that have emerged and attempted to take over the world of crypto with their advanced and innovative ideas. While these days there are well over 2,000 individual coins, there have been many more to emerge and disappear, all within the last 10 years.
Clearly, having an idea and launching the coin itself is not enough. While it is by no means easy to do so, there are additional measures and rules that you, as an altcoin creator, need to consider if you want your coin to remain relevant. Clearly, not every idea can succeed, and after 10 years, it is quite difficult to present something new. However, cryptos are still a new technology, which is why there are still many unexplored possibilities that may allow you to reach success.
Secrets to altcoin success
1. Capturing the attention
As mentioned earlier, there is not a lot of things that are simple when it comes to creating altcoins. However, while your plan and idea make sense to you, no matter how complex they end up being, this will not be the case with potential investors. Many of them might give up on getting involved if they do not understand what the coin is all about, or if the road ahead seems too complicated and unclear.
This is why having an idea is not enough. What you need to…
