Litecoin (LTC) Price Near $183.74; 2 Day Up Streak Ended, in a Downtrend Over Past 30 Days

The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated June 3, 2021, 02:016 GMT

At the moment, Litecoin’s price is up $0.8 (0.44%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 50 hour moving average has been crossed, with price now being above it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

As for a news story related to Litecoin getting some buzz:

How Litecoin and Dogecoin Created One of the Most Robust PoW Network’s | Litecoin Foundation

In a Reddit Merged Mining AMA with the Dogecoin community, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee described Doge’s rapid distribution in the following way….As Litecoin’s hash rate continued to increase, Dogecoin’s network became more vulnerable by the day….Throughout this phase, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee contributed to the discussion by explaining to the Dogecoin community the benefits and negatives of merged mining with Litecoin….With Dogecoin hardforking and allowing merged mining, Litecoin miners (who after all, shared the same mining algorithm as Dogecoin’s), would be incentivized to protect Dogecoin’s network by mining LTC + DOGE simultaneously….At first, Litecoin offered a helping hand in securing Dogecoin’s network via merged mining — saying that, there could become a reality in which through Dogecoin’s constant inflation and continuous mining, miners could later return the favor by helping secure Litecoin’s network as it transitions into a fee-based system….Litecoin miners who decide to merge mine with Dogecoin are essentially receiving “extra gravy” on top of their mined Litecoin’s.
