The bears were prolonging their stay in the crypto market. Litecoin [LTC], Ethereum [ETH], XRP, and several other coins were recording a price drop of over 10% over the last 24-hours. Bitcoin [BTC] didn’t stand strong either as it plummeted just like all the altcoins. While BTC had been hovering between $37K and $40K over the last couple of days, the king coin finally lost support and dipped down to $36K, during press time.
Despite being one of the earliest crypto coins, Litecoin [LTC] had slipped down in terms of crypto ranking. The altcoin ended up in the fourteenth position as its market cap slumped to $11.71 billion. LTC was overshadowed by an array of new coins like Uniswap [UNI], Internet Computer [ICP], and even Chainlink [LINK].
At the time of writing, LTC was trading for $174.88 with an 11.01% drop in the last 24-hours. The altcoin managed to surge up to a high of $412, just a couple of days ago. This soar left several LTC traders rooting for the coin to hit $500.
