Litecoin has continued cryptocurrency’s price rally into the weekend, with the currency up 8 percent as of writing and making a push to the critical $100 mark. While Bitcoin may be garnering the majority of the attention in crypto’s sudden bull run, LTC has continued to be one of the more eye-opening, and surprising gainers of 2019.
Since the start of the year, Litecoin is up 210 percent, with the most recent cryptocurrency rally making a push for the coin to top $100. LTC has not traded at or above $100 since June of last year, with the current price for the coin representing its relative high in both 2019 and over the last 10 months of trading. Should the currency continue its meteoric run, it will further the case for being the strongest cryptocurrency gainer throughout the first half of the year, driven in no small part by the actions of the Litecoin Foundation.
