Litecoin Just Had Its Third Halving—Here's What That Means for LTC - Decrypt

Mentions

If a pump happens, it will be purely FOMO, the supply shock takes a while to truly take effect. For anyone in doubt of this, check out LTC’s halfing date. Personally I like LTC and I’ve been taking the fact that it’s one of the lowest major alts as a decent little buying opportunity, but off the top of my head it’s been like a month and the halfing alone hasn’t had too much of an effect yet, because that full bore bull market hype isn’t there yet. Time will tell whether this is the start of the next bull market or the kind of extremely optimistic dead cat bounce that can and has happened before, but until we find out I have my high sells and low buys on the books.

Mentions:#LTC

True. I can imagine companies trying to ride the coattails for sure. But I'm sure something about it will always be missing. The transparency that comes with crypto can be a detriment in a lot of cases but when assessing the prospects of something it's a huge benefit. You don't often see companies advertising how much of a cut their CEO and board of directors take compared to their developers, it's not often you get the foresight of knowing when stocks will split or dilute. And because crypto is so flexible and the community has this very specific ideology people will jump ship the moment their principles are misaligned. The tech disruption at its core is probably why it's caught on so much. I also really wouldn't underestimate the power of having no head to the snake. It's a common trend in crypto for what is essentially the CEO of a project to just relinquish their control. If they've truly done a good job they won't always need to be at the top for it to succeed. Satoshi , buterin , whoever started LTC and many others. This is something tradfi will struggle to emulate, they're always going to want the hierarchy and while there's certainly a huge issue with whales already in crypto it dwindles in comparison to tradfi. Sure any tradfi whale could literally buy an entire project supply overnight but it'd turn to dust by morning. People would take one look at a 51% majority and the other 49% would dump. Again it's about balance, and I'm sure as with all things they'll eventually merge and naturally select a more optimal dynamic

I ditched all my LTC a few months ago for a loss and moved into: AVAX, ETH, LINK, and MATIC. It was the best decision I've made in a long time.

By mining I meant hashrate so I contradicted nothing, simply wasn’t clear enough for you apparently. Hashrate increases as the number of miners vie for the same prize. If the price is low then the hashrate will be lower because the number of miners will be lower. See the obvious correlation? My point is mining prices will continue to increase and hashrate will be ever more competitive. Unless LTC falls off, which at this point is a very unlikely scenario. You are arguing a non point in an attempt to be right or something I don’t really understand but I am done with you in general. Continue and I will simply block you as this is not worth my time. We’re done here.

The quick and dirty for that is adding a "privacy feature" to LTC, as well as potentially solving scalability issues that could crop up one day if usage of the coin were to exponentially increase. Development is ongoing in 2021, and viability/efficacy is not fully determined as of this writing. > > * LTC follows the same [halving](https://stormgain.com/blog/litecoin-ltc-halving) protocol as BTC. This has correlated to price increases for the coin in a similar fashion to BTC after each of these "cycles". It stands to reason that LTC should see another price increase in the 2024-2025 time-frame, coinciding with the next halving [set to occur in Q3 2023](https://litecoinblockhalf.com/). There's math and wrinkly-brain reasons for why it takes some time for the halving process to reflect in the market price. You'd have to go searching; I don't really understand it.

You will get an investment that "should" make you money in the long run, and potentially set you up for some really solid gains in the future. > > * LTC is not the behemoth that BTC is within the crypto space. The intimidation that comes from the price-tag that BTC sometimes wields ($37K to own one coin at the time of this writing, 60K+ attained) can be a turn-off for the smaller investor still interested in owning a "full coin". While this mindset is considered by veterans within the space to be somewhat naive and counterproductive, it is a psychological aspect that affects many projects within crypto. LTC's ability to allow someone to jump in at a much lower price point and still feel like their investment is "effective" is certainly a strength. > > * LTC has been picked up in the 2021 bull-run by [large institutional entities](https://news.bitcoin.com/grayscale-adds-174000-ltc-to-its-litecoin-holdings-price-of-the-altcoin-unresponsive/), signalling some confidence in it's ability to generate income in some fashion for shareholders/investors. It remains to be seen how this action will play out, as the events are too closely aligned with the large correction in late May 2021 before the coin could pick up steam. [It briefly touched a high-300s price-tag](https://currency.com/litecoin-price-prediction-2021), and many of LTC's supporters believe that it was aiming to go higher before the entire market dropped. > >   > > LTC has carved out a solid niche for itself over the years, and a loyal base that wants to see it succeed. As with any investment into a volatile market like crypto, there's a good chance you could lose some money. That said, I would put the chances of it happening with LTC over the long run at a smaller percentage than some of the more risky or "unreliable" projects in the space.

tldr; The Litecoin Foundation has addressed concerns over Litecoin's price stagnation, urging all stakeholders to contribute to the project's success. Despite the frustration among LTC holders due to the lackluster market response, the Foundation emphasizes its commitment to 'sound money' principles, avoiding manipulative strategies. Alan Austin, the managing director, highlighted the project's growth in on-chain metrics and usage, despite mixed results. He also pointed out the community's role in supporting Litecoin's value and adoption. The Foundation remains focused on innovation and the long-term potential of Litecoin, despite the challenges and criticisms, including those stemming from founder Charlie Lee's sale of his LTC holdings in 2017. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

>Network effect of main Bitcoin chain is far more important than whatever gain you think you are getting. It is no gain at all No one is talking about investing in LTC over BTC. The topic is the transactional efficiency of these cryptocurrencies. This is the second time you've gotten lost in the conversation. >There is nothing smart in this technology that accounts for scaling. You lack knowledge of the technical specifications of the blockchain. It's evident for two reasons: your post history is loaded with shit takes about cryptocurrencies, and you are repeatedly incapable of describing the intricate details of differences between LTC, BCH, and Bitcoin. "It allows more throughput", over-shooting *how* it achieves higher TPS because *you don't know how.* >It’s a linear copy and paste that makes the blocks bigger and allows a little bit more throughout. Litecoin and BCH are both forks of Bitcoin. Open-source software gets forked constantly. In fact, every time a Pull Request is issued, a fork must be made. To label each fork of a repository a "linear copy paste" is: 1. A misuse of the word "linear". 2. Manipulative word play to try and demonize what a fork is. "Copy pasted" software steal from other applications and sell it as their own. That's a proper usage of that word, and I am telling you that as a software engineer. But, your endless post history of being routinely confidently incompetent and full of yourself leads me to believe you will never deviate from "what comes from my brain is always truth".

Money is driven by network effects. BCH & LTC are bad money even if they are in theory better tech. Also if you analyse their price charts can see they are being manipulated by whales. BCH doubled within a week last June for no apparent reason. But with low volume it is easy to manipulate price. I have invested in both in the past and they have been a financial disaster compared to Bitcoin. So now when people in my family & friends ask me "which crypto to buy?" I only give one answer: Bitcoin - BTC. Extrapolate this out to all Bitcoin users and you can see why LTC/BCH have done nothing but decline vs BTC for years.

I typed this elsewhere. For me, these are 2 criteria I use. This is just what I have chosen for myself to be a good strategy. It is based off ***of trust me bro*** science. ---- Two criterias: 1. How much have they grown from their post-2021 lowest low. 2. How well have they performed against BTC. Explanation: If a coin has doubled, for example, but not outperformed BTC, it has not mooned (in my honest assessment based on just what I have seen happen since 2016-2017 opinion). All this means is that it has grown in value due to the rise of BTC as most if not all alts are pretty much paired with BTC, at least in market movement. > Example: LTC has not outperformed BTC. If it has outperformed BTC since the alt coin's post-2021 low, in my opinion it has mooned.

LTC now thats a differant story

Mentions:#LTC

These coins wont reach their ATH this bullrun: ADA, DOT, DOGE, MATIC, ICP, SHIB, LTC, ATOM, ALGO, XTZ RIP these coins

LTC price tends to go up when BTC starts shitting the bed. Prices get volatile, BTC fees moon, and then people start buying LTC to transfer their coins off exchanges cheaply. Then LTC dumps when they repurchase BTC.

You write you can’t trade your XMR and then sell and withdraw another altcoin like LTC? If so then you have to persist on Binance support stuff to withdraw either way your property. MOST IMPORTANT: Join to our strategy on fair Monero price : https://np.reddit.com/r/Monero/s/RohAV5uzog

That sucks, if it was me, I would trade it for LTC and withdraw the LTC. You can always swap it using simpleswap or changeangel back to XMR if you still want to hold it, I'd recommend a paperwallet so you're never in that situation again.

It isnt that hard to "predict" your coin will go up after the entire market has risen with some alts randomly exploding. You're not a genius for making a bull case in a bull market where everything is going up. Yet I know when we see the day LTC has its turn to pump, like all other coins, you're going to give yourself the biggest pat on the back for this insane "prediction". Tldr calm your tits

Why don't you distribute the $1000 based on the combined market cap of the top 10? If you were to do that, you'd be buying $677 of BTC and only $6 of DOT. By spending $100 on both, you're underweighted on BTC by 6x and overweighted on DOT by like 16x. Result is that it creates situations like this month you actually perform *worse* than the average crypto market because you're super heavily weighted in tiny alts compared to BTC and ETH. The flip side, though, is that on a run of alts you'll see outsized returns. Just as an exercise, here's what the distribution based on market cap would look like based on the current market caps: Feb 16, 2024 \[Symbol - Mcap prices - % of total - distribution\] BTC - $1000B - 67.7% - $677 ETH - $336B - 22.8% - $228 BNB - $54B - 3.7% - $37 XRP - $30B - 2% - $20 BUSD - $0.08B - 0.005% - $0.05 DOGE - $12B - 8.1% - $81 ADA - $21B - 1.4% - $14 MATIC - $9B - 0.6% - $6 DOT - $9B - 0.6% - $6 LTC - $5B - 3.4% - $34 Total MCap = $1,476.08 B
