    @litecoin @elonmusk Litecoin saved my life. I was living in my car for almost a year and one morning I woke up really cold and for some reason my brain remembered I had almost 1000 litecoin in a wallet stored in a email. Sold 100 of them and rented a house, got a TV and life is getting better 💕

  • From JohnkimLTC:

    I came into #bitcoin #Litecoin space as a SIMPLE MAN with a SIMPLE PLAN bc I had so much respect for it. This is my approach to any new space I JUMP into. Being or sounding smart isn’t my goal. My goal was SIMPLE. PRODUCE RESULTS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

  • From JohnkimLTC:

    #Litecoin will outperform #bitcoin % wise in 2021 not bc it’s better or faster but bc of it’s price point.The noobs will want 1 $LTC rather than 0.0065 #BTC It’s a psychological thing and CANNOT be ignored.
