This column is a regular analysis of the Litecoin price (LTC to USD). We compare against the US dollar for ease of comparison (all our cryptocurrency analysis will put values in the US dollar equivalent). One of the aims of Coin Rivet is to promote understanding of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Part of that understanding is looking at pricing trends for cryptocurrencies.
In discussing cryptocurrency prices, we are not recommending a coin neither are we recommending that you should invest in one. In fact, the more you learn and study the more you will realise that cryptocurrency prices fluctuate a lot and can be volatile. As we all know the value of investments can go up as well as down. In the case of cryptocurrencies that can be a lot – in both directions.
