Sell some BTC, but I sell it for vertcoin, same software, LTC supllay, verthash algoritam, smart enough!!?

Mentions:#BTC#LTC

I would feed sol. Get rid of a lot of the no-name project coins. Add eth, btc,sol, ltc. You also have to think about the narrative so garbage can coins, probably side chains, arbitrum, optimism, I would just think ahead to where you see the narrative going and how you see things being marketed when we get into that phase. That's where the money is likely to be and there's always going to be something that does 100X but good luck finding it. With BTC you likely have a 2x. Maybe more. ETH, probably a 3X, LTC, probably a 4 to 5X. So I start looking at these in terms of multiples. The problem with a lot of the smaller side projects. You might not have any X. You might just have losses. Not everything performs in a bull market. Case in point all the people who bought EOS when that launched, it's basically gone straight down

Have a childhood friend that brought it up every blue moon since about 2013. Then while d*cking around on robinhood with some stocks and a tiny bit of crypto in early 2021, Another friend from high school told me about Bitcoin/Crypto like twice within a span of a week. Decided to download Crypto dot Dom because I knew robinhood wasn't the best for Crypto even at that time. Unfortunately my first buy wasn't BTC. It was LTC and XLM. Eventually I found my way lol

Mentions:#BTC#LTC#XLM

Using XLM/LTC for moving between exchanges to trade is outdated for years and a waste of money. Just move USDC/usdt on a chain that isn’t basic ethereum. Arbitrum, Optimism, Solana, etc. don’t make trades into another coin to transfer between exchanges. You’re just wasting money on fees and spread

Mentions:#XLM#LTC#USDC

Just stay with the old powcoins ( BTC / LTC / XMR / VTC ) and you will have zero problems in future...if you are looking for trouble or want to have fun then buy any random crap token...

I use it to transfer from exchange to exchange but don't really hold it. LTC/BTC ratio has been on a downtrend since what feels like forever.

Mentions:#LTC#BTC

I used Bitpay for some micro online payments., with LTC is not bad at all, but with BTC gas is too high. However, paying with some selected merchants that use some other payment platforms went fast and easily. xMoney and AAS are my best picks so far.

Mentions:#LTC#BTC

I'm thinking to sell my BNB and XRP. XRP I'm only down like $5 so idc, BNB, I'm up over 200%. I'm thinking to mainly just buy BTC and ETH now (maybe SOL but I'm HODLING), shall I just transfer into something like USDT and dca in? I also want rid of ADA and LTC, but I'll bag hold. They'll move eventually before 2065.

If I where you I would take this opportunity to take control of your private key, not your key, not your crypto! Buy a Trezor One or Safe 3, it's cheap like 70$ and send your BTC there. That's being said, if you don't want to use hardware wallet and you still want to keep your crypto into an exchange, I would actually convert your BTC into ADA (LTC works too) and send to coinbase, use Coinbase Advanced for cheaper fees to convert back to BTC Cheers

Mentions:#BTC#ADA#LTC

You're right, converting to LTC on Binance.us is free. LTC transfers typically have lower fees than BTC. Convert your BTC to LTC, transfer to Coinbase, then convert back to BTC on Coinbase (potentially another fee).

> Funny to see alts lower now than when btc was at 50k It only gets worse the longer it goes. Look at some of the best performing ALTs that have survived since BTC was $13K 6 years ago, they've gone much lower. Most of the other top ALTs are dead. Jan 1, 2018 - BTC $13K - ADA $0.72 - XRP $2.39 - LTC $2.30 - BCH $2,400 Only a handful of lower marketcap ALTs have outpeformed. Once you reach multi-billion marketcap, where is money going to come from for ALTs? Institutional investors and big money aren't going to say, hey let me invest in Cardano, Ripple and Litecoin. They are skeptical of crypto and it is a big hurdle for them to even make a small allocation of their portfolio into Bitcoin.

Yeah, don't touch BTC unless you want BTC. Too expensive. Those fees aren't cake wallet, they're network fees. Get LTC or BCH and then swap using trocador or orangefren, that's the easiest way. You can use Haveno and just buy XMR directly from someone but that requires setting up the software. If you intend to do this somewhat often you should, but if it's a one off thing it's a bit of work.

Don't use BTC, it always has high network fees. Try LTC or BCH.

I'm sure this is a load of BS. Maybe you had a few crypto payments from a buddy. Practically no one pays with BTC or ETH, not to even mention LTC and XLM.

I think you are right that active addresses is not the greatest measuremant of a healthy project. Because it can easy be manipulated, above all whenntransaction costs are twnding near Zero. Which is the case for LTC. But, it still shows that the blockchain itself is very much alive and working 100% reliable uptime for consecutive 13 years . LTC has some great progress in the project, imo. Here are a few: - Hashrate at ATH. Exceeding 1 Phash/s lately - Grayscale Holdings for LTC at ATH - Most used crypto for transactions at bitpay (by far) - Still actively developed. Litecoin summit in July in Nashville

Weird, because I've been using it as a currency. A lot of the customer for the company I worked used Bitcoin, ETH, LTC, and XLM to pay us.

In stock market usually price follows fundamental data. And there is some fundamental progress, right? I do not say anyone should buy. I have been wrong very often in the past, but it is an interesting development and that i wanted to share and talk. I understand a lot of people got burned by LTC and that is why the post gets downvoted. Actually i hoped someone can bring up some arguments against it or pieces i am missing. But no one did so far. I know about the chart and the historical underperformance, but that does not make the mentioned points invalid

I HOPE ETF next one will BE FOR LTC. No other coins deserve it before ltc.. Then DOT, LINK and maybe NEAR.

Better?? LTC has been here since BTC and it's better even. Faster transaction, almost no fee at all, always up, actually used by many sites for paying and stuff, and it's been proven coin . Never disappointed, and in every bull run came 4-5x. What is that if not stable? Tell me one other coin except BTC that did that? All other coins can be gone but not ltc. They do better means nothing at this point. All of those coins are not proven. ETH is slow and expensive, BTC fees are 80-200$ even, other 'new coins' doesn't have that community and stability because they were here only for couple months or years.. most people don't even know about them.

Agree. BTC has had years of you have to own one and a it's going to millions of dollars. Now with the crazy fees locking out any small buyer only increases the probability of not utilizing it at scale. I know what about lightening, it's shit. Luckily LTC doesn't have that mentality so people spend it and replace it. I play the market to spend and replacing and have done quite well! Moving forward, the best way for is to use BTC as storage, and LTC and even DOGE for spending / replacing.

Taxes would be due as soon as the LTC is sold for ETH.

Get the LTC into a browser wallet. Sell it for eth. Bridge your eth to a layer 2 (optimism, arbitrum, or base if you're in the USA). Go to aave, deposit your new bridged eth as collateral. Take a loan of usdc against your eth. Send your usdc to a centralized exchange (coinbase or kucoin). Withdraw to your bank. Keep your crypto and avoid taxes. Get the cash you need.

I have about 35 LTC on KuCoin i need to withdraw to my bank account. By selling it to euro i lose about 70$. Is there any way around this? I need it in my bank asap. I really don’t wanna pay that amount to sell my crypto. It’s ridiculous tbh. I’m not experienced at crypto so any advice would be appreciated!

LINK: up 150% DOT: Lagging behind competition, nobody cares about it currently XLM: This still exists? XRP: 0 reason for it to still be as high as it is in market cap LTC: Doesn't have much reason to go crazy Besides, its pretty clear looking at the charts that the times of rapid price explosion are likely gone. Everything's going up at a more steady pace instead of suddenly going ballistic.

Lmao. What about LTC, XRP, XLM, DOT, LINK

Doge had been around the previous cycle, but a series of events blew it up last cycle including Elon’s embrace of it as well as Plebs with Stimmie checks. Then SHIB was the first Doge 2.0 and took off as well. Technically LTC was the first meme coin, however.

nice ok thank you. yeah i usually use ALGO when i move funds if possible but LTC is cheap too.

Feel free to check [Simpleswap.io](http://Simpleswap.io) . LTC is probably the best to use because of the low on chain fees. 0.05 LTC cost about $4 at the time of this reply. If the swap has a minimum the little selector will tell you. Also check [Changeangel.io](http://Changeangel.io) they are very reputable.

Litecoin is an overall disappointment. I bought 5 in 2021 for 140$. They're 80$ now. So you can guess my opinion on LTC.

> transfer between exchanges Who does that? Does nobody in this sub actually have a wallet? Also, only Binance charges 0.01 LTC

Mentions:#LTC

It's kinda implied that he meant transfer between exchanges. Some other commenters in this post also saying how good it is for between exchange. If between wallet, then LTC cheap fee is no longer special. All L2s and Solana cost pennies, fast, and support stablecoin.

It allows people to turn exchange transfer fees from a set amount (say a $2 tx fee) into a taxable event + variable percentage of your total send (say a 0.2% trade fee from BTC -> LTC, plus the spread, then another .2% + spread when you trade it back on the destination exchange.  That's what you're taking about, right?

Litecoin is a completely superfluous coin that does not need to exist. It’s amazing to me people in 2024 are still considering buying it. Just look at the LTC/BTC chart. That should tell you everything you need to know.

Bullish on memecoins, bearish on LTC I do think solana will continue to go well though, as much as I really don't like it and am not holding any. It's the reverse /cc in action.

I like LTC a lot. It’s fast and cheap with a finite supply, but I’ll never hodl it because of Bitcoin. Look at LTC/BTC, hell look at anything/BTC.

I never understand this. USDT/USDC withdrawal fee is like $0.15 if you choose cheaper chain while LTC is 0.01 ($0.8) Moreover if you swap your crypto to LTC, send it to another CEX, then swap it back to the initial crypto, you lost at least 0.2% in fee. Maybe 0.3-0.5% in total if including the spread. Do you guys transfer less than $10 between exchange or something smaller?
