The last couple of days were very good not only for the many altcoins that are rising in value, but also for Bitcoin as the crypto currency has pushed past the $1500 USD price point and seems to by trying to reach new heights every day. Not that we are complaining, however there are concerns regarding this serious peak as if it is a bubble getting ready to burst. The enthusiasm regarding crypto currencies such as Ethereum, ZCash and Litecoin as well as many other altcoins is nice and all, but we are seeing some overblown in terms of proportions ICO sales and that is also a reason for some concerns.

Litecoin (LTC) has been going up in terms of price in the last few weeks for a number of reasons including the upcoming SegWit support, Lightning Network and now the addition of trading pairs for the crypto currency by Coinbase. There was also a report that in the past 24 hours, over 1 million $LTC has been traded on GDAX. This is finally something that is really making LTC interesting again after the last couple of years when nothing much was happening and Litecoin wast moving much. This push is also helping the manufacturers of Scrypt ASICs such as the Innosilicon Dominator A4 and the more recent Bitmain AntMiner L3+. So if you have left out LTC for dead already, then you might want to reconsider that and keep an eye out for the future developments surrounding LTC once more.
