IMO - and I think it is at least an educated one - LTC is moving up for two reasons. Recently, the block reward halved, and I think we are seeing that knowledge post facto being priced into the market. I also think the lack of an answer to the block size debate in BTC is causing some capital flight into LTC until the BTC stuff gets worked out. It seems almost like a threat - "If you guys don't figure out this mess, we'll just switch to a new coin." It's beautiful, and I love it! BTC must submit to consumer demand!

that sounds like a very thoughtful, logical explanation for the LTC rally. i wouldn't be surprised if some of the demand comes through that channel, but i don't imagine that many traders to be so thoughtful!

Block halve reward (50 to 25 LTC/block) will occur in 42 days aprox.

Yeah, dumps are brutal arent they.  They continue until well past everyone's 'buy the dip' target, until after months of pain, they get enough bagholders to give up so the whales are fully loaded again.

Yea plus thats the number ive been waiting for ever since it dropped from teens

Why is Litecoin insane?



You own the network, but who pays for development?
