Litecoin faces strong selling pressure and a potential dive towards $60
It seems that Litecoin whales have been selling a lot of coins in the past week as the number of holders with 100,000 - 1,000,000 coins has dropped from 121 on November 18 to 114 currently. Furthermore, there are two fewer whales holding between 1,000,000 and 10,000,000 ($83,000,000 and $830,000,000), which is significant.
