Following Litecoin (LTC) progress in the cryptocurrency market, it seems the digital coin is on the long-term rise recording upward value trajectory for the past few days showing no sign of stopping. That is the main reason why many investors and traders are looking into the virtual currency to try and predict its prices before this year ends.

Before we continue, it is imperative to understand that Litecoin (LTC) is far more similar to Ethereum and Bitcoin than one could expect. Only by understanding their shared attributes and features is when you will be able to predict its value and price easily (and close-to-perfect).

At present, although facing a lot of resistance at the 77 US dollar level, Litecoin is on its way up with signs of fetching higher prices against Bitcoin (BTC) and the US dollar. The virtual currency is facing a lot of resistance at the 77 US dollar mark.

Currently, Litecoin (LTC) is exchanging at 74.9 US dollars after a price appreciation of 1.09% over the past 24-hours. In regards to its market capitalization, Litecoin boosts of an impressive $4.32 billion worth of market cap with a trading volume of over 271.6 million over the past one day.

Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis and Movement

Although taking the market by storm with plenty of good news, Litecoin (LTC) has had several price declines recorded beneath the 77 US dollar level against the US dollar.

Litecoin (LTC) depreciated beneath the 75 US dollar support level and further declined to a new significant support level of 72.50 US dollar level. From the graph of the virtual currency, the price of Litecoin (LTC) found offers close to the 72.5 US dollar mark and began correcting higher.

Despite the adverse movements, the virtual currency managed to surge over the resistance level of 74.5 US dollars breaking the 50% Fibo retracement level of the prior swing from a high of 78 US dollars to a low price of 72 US dollars. Litecoin (LTC) also exchanged over the 76 US dollar level and the 100-hourly SMA.

Notwithstanding, Litecoin (LTC) faced opposition at the 77 US dollar level and the 76.4% Fibo retracement mark of the former swing from the high and low of 78 US dollars and 72 US dollars respectively. Also, with a resistance level of 77 US dollars, it seems the formation of a critical bearish trendline might be on the offing.

If Litecoin (LTC) manages to break below its immediate support level of 74.5 US dollars, the price valuation of the virtual currency is likely to test the support area of 72.50 US dollars.

On the other hand, if Litecoin (LTC) manages to break the resistance level at 77 US dollars, it could open doors for more good news and gains towards the much awaited 100 US dollar price level and beyond.

Virtual currencies could benefit a lot from dosages of positive reviews and comments in sustaining their rallies from the previous month. A lack of positive news and reviews risk another cryptocurrency downfall that might lead to huge loses all over the place. Cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin (LTC) should strive to continue maintaining their green performances by giving cryptocurrency community members reasons to invest and trade their virtual assets.

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.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem.

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.
