Fake Walmart, Litecoin Collaboration Pumps & Dumps Billions In Minutes, Who’s Accountable?

Published

on

It all started when a popular news portal published a blog covering the partnership of Walmart with Litecoin. As the rounds of collaboration outspread in the market, the LTC price shoot up more than 30% and was an inch close to $250. The RSI had doubled in no time as the price had ended an extended consolidation. 

Moreover, the rounds of Walmart accepting Litecoin in payments had also thrilled the crypto space. All the thrill came to an end when the news published in the Walmart newsroom turned out to be fake. As an outcome, the LTC price dropped very badly, almost from where it initiated its rally.

The news of collaboration was first published in the wire account for ‘Walmart’. But the account appeared to be fake as the collaboration news is the only one appearing in the account. And the newsroom of the official corporate Walmart website had no mention of Litecoin. Also, the official Litecoin Twitter handle shared the news and deleted it within no time. Raising the suspicion of a possible pump and dump scheme. 

As per some reports, a Walmart official cleared the rumours to be fake and stated that it does not accept any cryptocurrency. Despite it was pretty clear that the rumours would not stand for a long time, Litecoin utilized the opportunity to uplift the LTC price. Also, the rounds of an insider being involved in the ‘pump & dump’ billions also surface the waters. However, the Litecoin Foundation is yet to come up with their piece of clarification.

LTC Price Analysis: LTCUSDT Shows Bullish Recovery As it Marks its Tenth-Year Milestone

Published

on


Litecoin is currently ranked the fifteenth cryptocurrency by market cap as it marks its tenth-year milestone in the crypto space. LTC holders generally do not see the tenth anniversary to be worth celebrating as their beloved crypto-asset gets dominated by Bitcoin BTC and underperform compared to other altcoins.

Litecoin LTCBTC Monthly Chart


The LTCBTC chart above highlights a bearish trend with the Bitcoin holders seeing more gains compared to LTC holders.

All attempts by LTC bulls against the BTC are to no avail as the price fails to close above a significant resistance, even with a consecutive bullish divergence in June and October ’21. We’ll need to see a price break above 0.007220 for confidence in a general price recovery for the LTCBTC.

However, the LTCUSDT is still promising with bullish recovery signals from the higher time frame, all the way down to the intraday charts. Read on as we uncover the significant chart patterns and price levels driving the LTCUSDT crypto pair.

Litecoin LTCUSDT Weekly Chart

The Litecoin price maintains a bullish outlook even after the market-wide price plunge on 10 May ’21, as the relative strength index trade above level-25 since 27 July ’20.

A recent bear-trap candlestick pattern on 27 September ’21 brings hope to LTC holders who have seen stunted returns and recovery compared to BTC and other ALT coins.

Litecoin LTCBTC Daily Chart

The 28 September bullish divergence on the daily chart above supports the bear-trap candlestick pattern on the weekly time frame, forcing the LTC price into an upbeat trajectory as old resistance [$187.00] of 24 September are now switched into support.

Bullish momentum at press time forced the LTC price above the 07 October high [$187.0] with a projected target at $240.00.

Litecoin LTCUSDT 4 Hr Chart

The regular bullish divergence support on 12 October ’21 08:00 fixed the LTC support level at $166.30 and advanced further to break the 14 October ’21 00:00 bearish divergence resistance, and flipping it into a new support level. 

Although the RSI confirms a new uptrend at press time, the RSI values could drop below level-75, forcing a correction of the LTC exchange rate. The upward trend should persist as long as the RSI does not drop below level-25.

The Litecoin price analysis: Recent developments and further technical indication

The increase in volatility which is indicated by the divergence of the Bollinger bands is providing more space for the upwards price function. The upper Bollinger band is now at $186, representing the resistance for LTC/USD. As the price trend is upwards, we can expect the price to rise further. The RSI has taken a downturn and is present at index 59, which is not a good indication.

Traders can expect the price to go above $184 in the coming hours.

Litecoin (LTC) Flips Ethereum (ETH) In Terms of Address Activity for Third Time in 2021

Published

on


If something good that’s happening to Litecoin (LTC) as of now is that there’s a sudden surge in the Litecoin address activity as of now. On-chain data provider Santiment reported that Litecoin has flipped the world’s second-largest blockchain platform Ethereum (ETH) in terms of address activity. The data provider reports:

Litecoin has just flipped #Ethereum in terms of address activity for just the third time this year. We’ve also discovered that #Litecoin‘s payment count, which quantifies the number of addresses receiving $LTC, has hit an #ATH.

As per on-chain data provider Santiment, the daily active addresses have touched 600K which is phenomenal for a UTXO cryptocurrency. Furthermore, unlike Ethereum, Litecoin doesn’t enjoy the strong backing of DeFi or NFT contributing to active addresses.

Litecoin Payment Count Hits All-Time High

Another important metrics highlighted by the on-chain data provider “payment count” has broken the 2017 bull run high. The data [provider noted:

This specific UTXO metric counts the number of addresses which are receiving Litecoins. And it’s very close to count of active addresses. Okay, LTC belongs to UTXO. May be it makes sense to compare it’s onchain activity to Bitcoin.

LTC Price Remains Flat

Despite the recent surge in the address activity, it hasn’t been much reflected in the LTC price. The Litecoin (LTC) price continues to trade flat at $173.78 with a market cap of $11.9 billion.

Last month in September 2021, LTC shot to its 2021 high of $223 on the strong rumors that retail giant Walmart was going to facilitate LTC payments. However, this price sustained for less than 24 hours in what appeared to be a case of classic pump and dump.

One of the Litecoin executives also rushed to tweet regarding it later pulling it down. The Litecoin creator Charlie Lee later assured that they will figure out how this fake news popped into the market. However, we have yet to hear further details of the investigation.
