Litecoin (LTC) continues to work under the radar as an inexpensive and fast medium of exchange. However, price instability suggests Litecoin (LTC) is far from being a reliable unit of account or store of value.

According to our observation, Litecoin continuous announcements of its adoption for both utility and trading is more likely to have a bullish sheathing effect the remaining time of the year. However, better days may be ahead for LTC.

Early this year, Litecoin prices started to depreciate prompting many coin holders to speculate that the price decline was a correction as a result of last year’s enormous bull run. However, Litecoin’s dismal performance has taken a long stay impacting on the digital token.

Although trying to recover, Litecoin has been witnessing reversals that always see the digital asset lose its value more than it was before the brief rallies and price bursts. There is no doubt that Litecoin is a significantly oversold cryptocurrency in the virtual currency market, showing indications of a remarkable comeback.

However, many coin holders have grown impatient and traded off their investments at losses due to lack of confidence and trust in the cryptocurrency and its ability to rise from the murky waters.

On the other hand, analysts are now claiming that the current market trend favors Litecoin and an expected rebound is likely to occur any time from now. Crypto experts are arguing that with Litecoin (LTC) in the oversold region, it is just a matter of time when the bulls will soon take over.

Litecoin Price Value

At the time of writing, Litecoin (LTC) is trading at 60.2 US dollars. The interesting bit about this is that the current valuation of Litecoin is almost similar to 2013’s peak of 50.27 US dollars.

It is prudent to note that today’s trading volume is far higher than it was 5-years ago suggesting two things. One, Litecoin’s value back in 2013 was sustained by the blockchain’s underlying technical worth rather than its market influence.

Since Litecoin’s blockchain technology is more or less the same, investors are urged to be hot on their heels on the products and services Litecoin (LTC) has to offer. Two, more Litecoin (LTC) is being exchanged today compared to back then even though LTC prices are still low indicating that people might be missing something.

In simple words, individuals were initially inspired by the LTC project and what it offered assisting in pushing its prices to higher heights.

However, as new altcoins were launched flooding the crypto market, individuals started looking beyond LTC moving along with the hype that was being created by other coins. The result was that the price of Litecoin (LTC) in US dollars did not reach its expected potential despite the coins impressive history and trading volume.

All hope is not lost. In August, Litecoin’s founder, Charlie Lee disclosed to the world that the digital coin was working with mobile company HTC to build and create new blockchain smartphones.

The smartphones are going to not only serve Litecoin but serve as a wallet for various cryptos although Litecoin will be better placed to take advantage of the new project. The realization of this project is sure to increase the price value of Litecoin (LTC).

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
