Despite an impressive rally to the $140 range earlier this month, top cryptocurrency Litecoin (LTC-USD) has since seen volatility materialize to the downside. Currently, this token is down more than 6% today, as the broader crypto market sells off alongside risk equities. For many investors, expectations of where the expert Litecoin price predictions suggest this token could go from here now matter more than ever.
One of the oldest cryptocurrencies, Litecoin is a project that launched in 2011. Alongside Bitcoin (BTC-USD) and other proof-of-work networks, Litecoin’s consensus mechanism is run by “miners.” These miners solve complex mathematical problems to validate and secure the blockchain.
Given the various environmental concerns around crypto mining, Litecoin is a token that’s lost its top-10 status already. Now, LTC is on the precipice of the top-20 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.
So, will this token soar from here? Or are investors wanting newer, more exciting projects? Let’s see what the experts think right now.
