Litecoin is a very popular cryptocurrency to monitor since it appears to hold a number of advantages over Bitcoin. Litecoin provides faster transaction confirmations (2.5 minutes on average) and Litecoin’s transaction fees are, on average, considerably lower than that of Bitcoin. It is also important to mention that the price of Litecoin is correlated with the price of Bitcoin and investors in this cryptocurrency should also have Bitcoin on their “watch list”.

Last Friday, Bitcoin weakened below the important $10,000 level for the first time since late July, harming a number of Bitcoin investors who argued that Bitcoin is turning into a safe-haven asset like gold. Bitcoin is currently trading at $10,250 after defending the $10,000 level again. Bulls have already defended this level for a week straight and some analysts believe that BTC may start trading higher in the upcoming days. This is positive news for the price of Litecoin and this month could be very significant for the future price of this cryptocurrency.
