    I once dm’d a very popular Bitcoin maxi (who’s done a lot for the space) and asked if he knew why Litecoin’s trading volume was so high relative to its market cap. Only response was “a lot of exchanges lie about volume”. That’s when I knew even “experts” can be highly ignorant.


    Litecoin could hit bitcoins 2017 price top divided by 4. That price would be $4960Few.
