Litecoin (LTC) at New Lows This Year. Is It Time To Get Some More?




Current analysis of the current levels witnessed by Litecoin (LTC) indicates that the coin has recently hit new lows for the year. LTC is currently trading at $96.80 and down 8.64% in the last 24 hours. Further analyses indicate that a new low was achieved on Wednesday, 14th of June when the coin was valued at $94.97.

Doing a bit of time traveling and checking when LTC last reached these levels, we find that LTC tested these levels, back on the 28th of November. Litecoin would later skyrocket to new levels of $339 on December 12th and $371 on December 19th according to

So, is it a good time to buy some Litecoin?

Warren Buffett is one investor who does not shy away when the traditional stock markets are in turmoil. As a matter of fact, this is the time Buffett is known to get excited about buying stocks. He loves to buy and hold.

But we all know Buffett does not like cryptocurrencies.

Very true. But we can still borrow the analogy. Litecoin is at a very low level right now. Anyone with additional capital and the risk tolerance of the cryptocurrency markets can go ahead and buy. However, please note this author is not a financial adviser. He is simply working from observing past trends.

Recent Litecoin news.

Abra Global has been bullish about Litecoin (LTC) for quite some time now. The company’s CEO has even stated that the company will be using LTC as their primary digital asset moving forward. They will use Litecoin for their smart contract investing solution because of 3 reasons outlined below:

  1. Commitment to Bitcoin compatibility
  2. Better scalability than Bitcoin
  3. Lower transaction costs than those of Bitcoin

The Abra Wallet has since added Litecoin to the platform and supports direct withdrawals and deposits of the coin.

Litecoin is still living in the shadows of the disappointment of Litepay which was canceled abruptly due to what Charlie Lee termed as lack of due diligence. But time is always a factor for such a project to recover its footing in the crypto-verse. Perhaps this new low value is a sort of ‘reset button’ for the coin and project to start afresh on a new leaf.

KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents




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.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges




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…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share




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…
