- Litecoin network has witnessed a massive spike in active addresses and network activity.
- With LTC halving less than three months away, Litecoin price is recovering, and nearly 50% of wallet addresses are profitable.
- The introduction of the LTC20 standard has fueled increased activity on the Litecoin blockchain.
Litecoin, one of the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, witnessed massive growth in its wallet addresses with the upcoming halving. The introduction of the LTC20 standard, similar to Bitcoin’s BRC20, drives growth in on-chain activity on Litecoin.
Litecoin wallet addresses increase in profitability closer to LTC halving
Based on data from crypto intelligence tracker IntoTheBlock, there is a spike in the percentage of Litecoin wallet addresses profitable at $80.87. Nearly 50% of wallet addresses holding LTC are sitting on unrealized profits, and the next cluster of resistance is the $81.27 to $83.57 level, followed by $83.51 to $85.75. Once Litecoin price crosses these resistance zones, there will be a spike in the percentage of profitable wallet addresses.
Litecoin wallet addresses that are profitable
1.17 million addresses holding LTC tokens are currently sitting on unrealized losses. Litecoin faces resistance at the $81.27 level, where 51,000 addresses scooped up nearly 1 million LTC tokens.
