I would say before the halving. History shows that LTC has a run up to the halving and then dumps a little afterwards.

Mentions:#LTC

Most the replies here are going to be BTC and ETH. They are considered by most as the bluechips of the crypto world. At this point you are almost assured they will never go to $0. In saying that, a few other sub favourites are also looking pretty good. DOT, ATOM, MATIC, etc are also great plays if you get in at a good price. Do I think alts will dump if a recession occurs or interest rates get hiked above market expectations? Yes. But they are highly unlikely to get to $0. Many alts can dump 95% down, and still rise from the ashes like a Phoenix during the next bullrun. My take on Solana is that I actually like the coin. This sub hates the living shit out of it because of the constant downtimes, however this sub did get it wrong on Doge and SHIB as well. If Solana can survive the FTX fallout, which hasn’t completely played out yet, it will come back. The reason why I don’t think it’s played out yet is because the FTX liquidators may dump their alt reserves to claim what they can to pay back secured creditors and hopefully a % for victims in the fraud as well. This is the one thing currently hanging over SOL’s head and it’s not a small matter. Quite a few are hanging out for any news of that event occurring, others are hopeful that the current CEO of FTX **may** restart the exchange. All options are being considered. The final underdog is LTC with its halving occurring July this year 2023. Definitely a legit coin that has survived quite a few cycles already and nothing to suggest it’s going anywhere. Hope this info helps in some way.

Hold whatever you like, BTC, ETH, LTC, got some SOL as well

I don’t hate on people for wanting to make profits in this market, but I cannot for the life of me understand what’s so appealing about chasing gains on coins/tokens with little credibility? People could do very well if they invest in credible coins like BTC, LTC, DOGE and others, but they seemingly think it has to be a “rich or broke” mentality. A 5x is no longer good enough. It has to be 100x or it’s seemingly not worth it. Not a good mentality to have in life tbh.

How much do you think early miners own of the total allocation of LTC?? It's the same thing. Cosmos actually has one of the lowest allocation to early investors of all major chains. It's kinda hilarious you attempted this comparison. You would have been better trying this argument with almost any other major project. Yes, LTC inflation is funneled to mining farms. A privileged few. Cosmos inflation goes to any user that wants it. This isn't comparable. Cosmos is upgrading so that every chain connected within the Cosmos ecosystem will now need to use/stake ATOM in order to secure that chain. This is an actual use case that puts massive buy pressure on ATOM. Especially as the ecosystem grows. Something LTC doesn't have. LTC/BCH are literally just Bitcoin clones with no purpose, and terrible network effects.

A person doesn’t need to hold the best performing coin every cycle. Litecoin is up 132% from the bottom of this bear market as of right now. Far out performing Bitcoin at the moment. Will that change? Yes! Will I care? No. It’s still one of the most widely used coins, zero down time and very cheap to transact. When all of the shit coins are gone, LTC will still be there. I do think Bitcoin is the better store of value long term but Litecoin has secured its permanent place in crypto as well. I can’t complain with Litecoin. 🤷‍♂️

And I'm happy to concede that ETH transfers much more value than LTC. I just don't think ETH's use case in the future is as a currency, but as a network to be built upon which is where its value and network effect have mostly come from.

Mentions:#ETH#LTC

Interesting. The way LTC is setup actually promotes value growth over time similar to BTC. It is however much better than BTC at being a means of exchange, so I could see how it might be better to have the price lower. The problem is that it has to be purposefully suppressed by an entity at all times in order to keep the price stable or down since the coin doesn’t have an inflationary supply system. It could be that an entity wants Litecoin to remain lower in order to utilize it more efficiently, but I don’t see how it can last very long. Litecoin could definitely handle a lot higher price though, so I still believe it is capable of growing in value.

Mentions:#LTC#BTC

That is very possible. The question I would then have is why is LTC one of the few cryptos being valued appropriately? Is it because people take it seriously as a credible coin? It just seems odd that whales and traders would find Litecoin not worth “pumping” when the tokenomics are much better for increasing value than many other cryptos like SHIb for example. It’s quite a conundrum to me.

Why bother with crypto at all if you're not using it to increase your wealth? What's the point then? Nobody hates LTC man. I don't know why you take it personally. The most it generates is casual indifference. There's attempts to make the market more credible but there has to be REAL use cases that are attractive to everyday people before crypto is taken seriously as anything but a speculative asset. You see it growing but it's still at least a decade away until it's treated as a currency or anything but a way to make money.

Mentions:#LTC

I do use this information to my advantage. I’m just know I’m never going to get rich off of crypto, so there’s no reason for me to shill any coin all day long. I just genuinely want to understand why so many people hate LTC and why people want to invest in outright scams when they could invest in more credible coins? I get people have the right to spend their money how they see fit, but it’s troubling to see that there’s no real attempt even at trying to make this market more credible. Maybe crypto will forever be nothing but a gambling joke.

I'm not pressed aoubt anything, I was just curious as to why every single post you make is about LTC being undervalued in such a militaristic way. I like LTC, it's got a lot of real world use cases and it's a legitimately good project. You'd think you'd want to use this undervaluation information to your advantage if it's so undervalued, it would be a perfect entry to accumulate a large position before anyone else cops on.

Yeah it's just this one user in particular, it's all of their posts. LTC is pretty decent as a crypto project with real world use, just not popular for speculative reasons (> 90% of the crypto userbase)

LTC is a lot but def not a Shitcoin

I’m be honest here: I own a small bag of LTC, but the main reason I vouch for this crypto is because the criticism is severely unjustified and most of the time completely irrational. It’s severely undervalued based on network metrics, adoption and development. It’s ducking strange at this point that people such as yourself get so damn pressed about the one or two people willing to talk about such a great coin…

Yea of course, take a look at the BTC chart look at 2019 that’s the LTC halving and the next one will be a lot bigger then that one. Personally I think it’s going to get enough people talking for the majority to start investing in LTC. But I think the reason why investors think Bitcoin will start to reach these crazy prices bu 2024 and again there is a lot of thing they simply just do not tell you and keep people in the dark about. It isn’t some random guess. I think Bitcoin really will reach 150-250k because not only will Bitcoin halve in 24 but Ethereum also triple halves in 24 too. But I think the only thing that’s keeping the market in crypto healthy this year is LTC in my honest opinion.

BTC, LTC, XMR or even DOGE sure, but ATOM or LINK, they’re not made to buy goods really

I just asked ChatGPT which coins to buy - at first it didn't want to because "I am a language model and do not have the ability to predict future market conditions or provide financial advice.", but then I told it, it should pretend to be a financial advisor. Then it just advised me to buy the classics, haha "As a financial advisor, my general advice would be to diversify your portfolio by investing in a variety of different cryptocurrencies. It is important to conduct thorough research and understand the underlying technology and fundamentals of each coin before making an investment. Here are a few things to consider: 1. Bitcoin (BTC) is the largest and most well-known cryptocurrency, and it has a strong track record of stability and growth. It can be a good choice for those looking for a long-term investment. 1. Ethereum (ETH) is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization and it has a strong developer community working on its ecosystem. It's also the most used blockchain for smart contracts and decentralized application, that's why it can be a good choice for those who believe in the power of smart contract and the decentralized ecosystem. 1. Litecoin (LTC) can be considered as a good alternative to Bitcoin, it's a peer-to-peer digital currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. 1. Ripple (XRP) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to secure financial transactions, control the creation of additional units, and verify the transfer of assets. 1. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a cryptocurrency that was created in 2017 as a hard fork of Bitcoin. It has faster transaction times and lower fees than Bitcoin. It's important to note that cryptocurrency investments can be highly volatile and the market is still in a nascent stage, so it's important to invest only what you can afford to lose. Additionally, it's advisable to keep an eye on the latest news and regulations that may affect the crypto market."

BTC halving is next year by then we should be starting to see some upside. Does A LTC halving affect the rest of crypto as much though? I know LTC usually surges after, but what about BTC and ETH, does it affect the other big 2?

It’s incredible how Litecoin gets ignored and people don’t see to understand or appreciate what it is. The last LTC halving in 2019 Bitcoin went from 3.5k to 12k at the peak of halving.

Those $0.65 transaction fees on ETH are so enticing for everyday purchases and use as a currency when LTC fees are $.0070 . . . Bitpay is a service that helps people use crypto like a currency/cash. Take a look at their stats: https://bitpay.com/stats/ - why is ETH not higher? It does have 30X LTC MCAP afterall . . . You're getting into semantics about what a currency represents. It isn't just value transferred. For a good or currency to function as a medium of exchange and be considered “sound money”, it must be durable, divisible, portable, uniform, acceptable, limited in supply and finally, fungible. The value exchange you are talking about ETH facilitating is not uniform at all, a lot it is NFT's which are cryptographically unique. Ethereum (the chain) represents a lot more than Ethereum as a token that could be used for purchasing. Does Western Union facilitate value exchange? Yes. Is Western Union a currency? Nope. Does Sotheby's auction house facilitate value exchange? Yes. Are they a currency? Nope.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Ethereum (ETH) is a decentralized blockchain network that allows for the creation of decentralized applications (dApps) and the execution of smart contracts. However, it is true that a small group of companies, known as mining pools, currently control a large portion of the network's hash rate, which is a measure of the computational power being used to secure the network. This centralization of mining power does raise concerns about the potential for a 51% attack, where a group of miners could collude to control the network and potentially reverse transactions. As for the most decentralized and safest cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin (BTC) is often considered the most decentralized and secure, as it has the largest and most decentralized mining network. Other decentralized cryptocurrencies include Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), and Zcash (ZEC). Some of the biggest blockchain technology projects include: *Bitcoin: a decentralized digital currency that allows for peer-to-peer transactions without the need for a central authority. *Ethereum: a decentralized platform that allows for the creation of dApps and the execution of smart contracts. *Ripple (XRP): a digital asset designed for payments and remittances, with a focus on enterprise use cases. *EOS: a decentralized platform for the creation of dApps, with a focus on high performance and scalability. *Cardano (ADA): a decentralized platform for the creation and execution of smart contracts, with a focus on security and sustainability. Each of these projects has its own unique goal, but overall, they aim to create decentralized and trustless systems for various use cases, such as digital currency, smart contracts, and dApps.
