Litecoin daily transactions hit key milestone

Litecoin, a decentralized asset used for borderless transactions. The altcoin hit a key milestone with 1 million daily transactions in 2023. The asset’s price is up 8.61% in the past year, and offered LTC holders nearly 7% monthly gains.

Santiment data reveals that despite consistent profit-taking by LTC holders, Litecoin price increased from its September 11 low of $58.83 to December 8 local high of $76.28. Litecoin enjoys a relatively high correlation with Ethereum, at 0.78, therefore LTC price is likely to follow ETH in its steps. 

Large wallet investors are on the move in Litecoin as whale transactions coincide with spikes in Network Realized Profit/Loss metric, as seen in the Santiment chart below. This signals that Litecoin’s uptrend is not influenced by profit-taking activities of LTC holders.

Ethereum has sustained above the $2,200 level since December 21, and the altcoin's uptrend is one of the factors supporting LTC price gains.
