The world’s 7th most powerful cryptocurrency by market cap, Litecoin (LTC), has been making headlines and headways recently as the digital coin is finally starting to live up to its name. Currently, Litecoin seems to be fully lit.

In this week, after Monday, the prices of Litecoin (LTC) have been in a bullish trend (technically) rising from its low of 51.05 US dollars to the high of 58.73 US dollars. However, regardless of the good news, the prices of Litecoin (LTC) was resisted, and the prices of the digital coin fell to a low of 55.90 US dollars. Since last week, the price value of Litecoin (LTC) has been depreciating between the levels of 60 US dollars and 50 US dollars.

Today, Litecoin (LTC) prices continue to depreciate between those price levels until the digital coin is broken by price. At present, the prices Litecoin (LTC) is currently fetching 57.16 US dollars per coin. Nevertheless, both the signal line and the MACD line are below the zero-line indicating a trade/sell signal.

Subsequently, the price value of Litecoin (LTC) is below the 12-day and 26-day EMA respectively indicating we might be in the early stages of a bearish trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) for period 14 is in level 44 indicating the price value is in the sideways trend zone.

Litecoin (LTC) Price Trend and Forecast

At the time of writing, Litecoin’s market capitalization stands at 3.3 billion US dollars with a trading volume of 217.5 million US dollars in the last 24-hours.

When it comes to predicting the value of the coin, many crypto experts are of the opinion that Litecoin (LTC) is going to reach a price value of 600 US dollars or more before this year ends. At present, when you compare the virtual currencies in the market, you will see that Litecoin is doing a very good job of maintaining a good position among the many digital currencies.

Many cryptocurrency funds and institutional investors are either investing in the digital asset or are intending. This is the reason behind Litecoin’s (LTC) daily increasing number of transactions. If you are looking to invest in Litecoin (LTC), now might be the best time to trade in the digital asset as you would be in a good position to make some handsome returns throughout the year – thanks to Litecoin’s price prediction for 2018. But as always, it would be prudent to diversify your virtual currency holding to reduce the risks involved significantly.

Not too long ago, the virtual currency declined in value drastically against the US dollar and found a new support level that is close to the 49 US dollar mark. Shortly afterward, Litecoin (LTC) started an upward trend and corrected over 52 and 54 US dollar mark.

As you look at Litecoin performance chart, you will see the price value of the virtual token bids close to the 50 US dollar mark, a connecting support trendline. Litecoin’s price managed to keep a brave fight that led to its higher price surge that broke the resistance level at 54 and 55 US dollars respectively. The most recent price surge was positive as the digital coin exchanges hands over the 50% Fibo Retracement level of the prior swing that was of a high of 60.6 US dollars to the low of 49 US dollars.

Nevertheless, the price value of the virtual asset is currently capped on the upper side of the 57 and 60 US dollar levels. The 61.8% Fibo Retracement level and the 100-hourly SMA of the prior swing of the high of 60.6 US dollars and a low of 49 US dollars is close to the 58 US dollar mark.

Overall, there is another major hurdle Litecoin will have to jump that is close to the 60 US dollar mark. If Litecoin manages to appreciate over the 58 US dollar level, it will need to break the 60 US dollar level to correct further. Consequently, Litecoin has to maintain its immediate support level of 55 US dollars to avoid further declines.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
