LTC is a HODL coin. It has better technology and scaling than BTC, it now has a dedicated marketing team, and the creator is fully invested now in helping it grow. Buy LTC and HODL.

Thanks, this re-affirmed my previous conviction

why? Its now already nearing $3

That still doesn't mean it can't reach 100. What you think is a ridiculous market cap now won't be in the future. People were literally saying months ago xpr could never reach 1 dollar for the same reasons.

I guarantee it hits at least 50.


Btw arbwater... get out of litecoin... There is no money to be made there. Litecoin has no long term value... and even if it does, it doesn't compare to the long-term value of other coins that have WAY more growing to do. At best litecoin reaches what... 1 grand? You're not making shit even best case scenario.

Imagine thinking bitcoin will be the ONLY crypto worth anything in the future while ignoring all the money being made off altcoins NOW. Takes a special moron/bitcoin sheep

He was pretty passionate about bitcoin and bitcoin only lol. I can see why he wants it to happen that way but I just don't agree that it will realistically play out like that. Unless Bitcoin has some ground-breaking patentable technology that no one can replicate, it's highly unlikely for his scenario to happen. First to market is a great advantage but it is surmountable as time goes on. Even Apple couldn't hold on to its lead in the phone market. The only way it could happen in my opinion is that all governments ban every crypto except bitcoin, and what are the odds that would happen? It's more likely the opposite would happen. Personally, I love seeing so many cryptos. Give the consumers choice; let the free market work

I use Binance.

I was surprised to see even CNBC put out an article on how to buy Ripple:
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/02/how-to-buy-ripple.html

Probably where a lot of the new buyers are coming in...
