  • Litecoin what moves 35,400,000 LTC in less than 24 hours taking up 60% of the assets market cap.
  • Litecoin gains 3.87% on daily basis as bulls take back the control.
  • All the fundamentals point towards a bullish break.

The Litecoin network recently saw a whale move a colossal amount of LTC in a single day. The transaction had an impact on the total value of assets transferred on the network. The transaction which took place on November 30 saw Litecoin network support a transaction that took up 60% of the total market capitalization. This means that the investor moved approximately 35,400,000 LTC in less than 24 hours which translates to about $1.1 billion in USD.

The last of such a transaction was witnessed in February this year. The transaction at the beginning of the year was mainly fueled by panic castigated by news that there will be a crypto market crash. Since then the network has been recording transactions totaling $100 million on a daily basis. The low transaction on the network could also mean that people are moving from the speculative nature of the cryptos and embracing fundamental uses of the same.
