From this point of view, current growth is therefore part of natural cycles. In addition, some speculators now tend to perceive the movement of the Litecoin price as a harbinger of a further upsurge in the entire virtual coin market.

It was then that the mood of investors began to reverse, and it was Litecoin that was the first to see the price boom of the more widespread virtual coins.
His several hundred percent gains bitcoin repeated with delay. If this reasoning is confirmed, it is said that in the coming months, a price tag of around hundred dollars can be expected for litecoin.

In particular, Litecoin offers faster transaction confirmation in comparison with the best-known bitcoin – it can be confirmed instead of ten minutes in just 2.5 minutes. Along with even lower transaction fees.
