Litecoin (LTC) Shows Recovery Above $150: Is LTC Going to $200?




LTC has been showing signs of recovery since early December.  The price has been in a tight range between $142 and $166. A breakout in any direction will provide a clear direction to follow. However, range traders can benefit from this range until it’s broken.

Litecoin’s specialty is its transaction processing speed and minimal costs. Transactions in Litecoin are often verified in minutes, and transaction costs are low. This makes it an appealing alternative to Bitcoin in developing nations, where transaction fees may be a determining factor in selecting which cryptocurrency to support.
