Litecoin Price Prediction: LTC/USD has excellent upside potential despite Novogratz criticism - Confluence Detector


  • LTC/USD is currently trading for $88.25 and has no significant resistance lines till $95.
  • Mike Novogratz, Fortress Hedge Fund manager, criticized Litecoin saying “Litecoin is a glorified test net for bitcoin.”

LTC/USD is currently trading for $88.25 as markets opened this Saturday. The confluence detector shows that there are no significant resistance lines till $95 so expect the bulls to make some significant moves over the weekend. Despite Litecoin’s upside potential, Fortress Hedge Fund manager Mike Novogratz doesn’t seem to be a fan. He said:

“Gold has an $8.5 trillion-dollar market cap. Silver is $15 billion. That is .17 percent. Bitcoin has a $90 billion dollar market cap. Litecoin is $5.7 billion, which is only 6.4 percent of bitcoin. Silver is at least useful for industrial production. Litecoin is a glorified test net for bitcoin. I don’t get this rally. Sell Litecoin and buy bitcoin.”

Litecoin founder Charlie Lee didn’t take too kindly to his comments. He fired back:

“Litecoin is a glorified test net? Bitcoin Lightning Network makes Litecoin useless? Can’t be more wrong! High bitcoin fees? With http://boltz.exchange, just do a cross chain submarine swap from Litecoin on-chain to bitcoin. Send Litecoin to fill up your bitcoin wallet! Fast: ~2.5 minutes. Cheap: pennies in fees.”
