Trader trashpanda19 offered his view of Litecoin's technicians:
"Litecoin is repeating the test on the resistance line of the upper wedge. way it convincingly breaks the upper blue confined triangle, I will see my position on Litecoin again.But it is unlikely that, for the foreseeable future, I will be able to see the price go down to 38 $. "
they missed in the last two weeks. One of these was the release of Litecoin Core v0.16.2, which was announced in the official media page of the projects.

The project has also recently held its Summit Litecoin, the first event of this nature. The summit was held in San Francisco, from September 14 -15 and by several important speakers (including the creator of Litecoin Charlie Lee, the directors of the Litecoin Xinxi Wang Foundation and Franklyn Richards, VP of Engineering at Gemini Eric Winer, CEO of TokenPay Derek Chief and others) took the stage to talk about various questions and problems related to cryptography:
- Interconnectivity between digital resources
- Designing the future of digital currencies
- Adoption of payment  Bridging the gap between traders and consumers
- Importance of non-custodial portfolios
- How to protect user funds
- Atomic swaps

These were two incredible days. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, speakers and all the supporters who have traveled from all over the world to participate!

During the Summit, various interesting information was revealed. Gemini announced that will launch support Litecoin on October 13 th 2018. Charlie Lee went on the Bad Crypto Podcast where discussed various crypto and non-crypto related issues with Joel Comm and Travis Wright, the hosts of the program. Lee also did a couple of … interesting comments about him selling his holdings in Litecoin several months ago. Saying that he "sucked" if he did not sell his coins, he confirmed that he sold them because Litecoin was doing very well at the time. Lee claims that by selling his coins he earned enough money to be put to life; this allowed him to focus his attention completely on the development of Litecoin, rather than looking for other sources of income.
"Thank God I did what I did, any other way and I should look for another job to handle my life."
While his reasoning makes sense, the & # 39; ethics of his move is quite controversial. @ CryptoGainz1 of Twitter pretty well sums up the general feeling about these comments:
Charlee Lee to the LTC holders "well, I mean, one of us had to be poor fam – and will not be me"

Litecoin's voices that are overrated and lacking a real reason for existence have been heard in the past, and we have noticed that they were intensifying recently. Multicoin Capital provided this currency analysis, defining Litecoin "a relic of the cryptographic ecosystem of the pre-smart contract platform" and citing several reasons why they decided to shorten it. While the summit was a great success and showed that Litecoin has strong community support, there are reasons to believe that the currency is obsolete and the issues of its longevity remain. Only the future will show whether Litecoin will succeed in turning into real silver in Bitcoin gold.
