  • From Johnez84:

    People I know who don’t hold #Litecoin ask if these dips scare me. Seriously? We’re trying to bootstrap sound money. I’m not trying to get rich, I’m literally trying to help save the world and a byproduct of that is wealth. Let it go to zero if that’s what happens.

  • From LitecoinForever:

    Since the beginning of Litecoin there have always been Litecoin haters. Just ignore them. Last week Litecoin saw the largest $USD value transfer over its network in its almost 10 year history. Litecoin will continue to grow and is the future.
    $LTC 💎🙌

  • From LitecoinForever:

    The sheeple that are bearish on Litecoin don’t understand that the financial system is completely broken. Do you really believe that the arsonist (Federal Reserve) is going to admit to setting the fire (hyperinflation)? Accumulate Litecoin now to protect your wealth.
