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:

Conclusion

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.

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.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
