Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) – In a day when crypto-investors finally had some positive news to applaud, the markets reacted with a wave of green and some shakeups in the top coins at market value. 19659003] Litecoin (LTC) led the way with a thirty percent jump in the day, taking the price of LTC to over $ 43 as written. While the coin has long been viewed as "silver" to Bitcoin's gold, Charlie Lee's creation leapfrog EOS managed to become the fourth largest crypto competition in market capitalization. In addition to being a supporter in the market, with transaction speeds and fees that improve on Bitcoin, Litecoin is also in fact oversold. In December 201
LTC also received an increase in valuation due to an early announcement that the Litecoin Foundation had entered into a partnership with development firm Beam to integrate a protocol that would improve privacy and scalability. The Litecoin Foundation, which has played an active role in promoting the currency – recently through mixed martial arts production, the Ultimate Fighting Championship and their ring sponsorship – has also made a joint effort to improve technology through regular experiments and partnerships. The end result has been a "testing ground" for cryptocurrency, with LTC as the first coin to implement such innovations as Segwit, atomic swapping and netting.
According to the Beam blog post announcing the partnership with LTC, the new protocol seeks to improve privacy through LTC transactions,
"We have begun exploring to add privacy and fungibility to Litecoin by allowing regular LTC detour to a Mimblewimble variant of LTC and vice versa. In such a conversion, it will be possible to trade with Mimblewimble LTC in complete confidentiality. "
Ethereum also saw a rise in price of the day, which exceeded it in relation to the market and other top ten currencies . Like Litecoin, Ethereum has entered oversold territory throughout the 2018 Bears Cycle, giving ETH investors hope that the latest price fluctuation is indicative of lasting valuation. While the currency could not replace XRP for the second position in total market value, it reduced the gap to $ 400 million. At the time of writing, the ETH token climbed 13 percent over twenty-four hours, and the price of Ethereum was $ 118 and was played by the critical line built at $ 100.
XRP and TRON also made significant gains during the day, climbed 6 percent and 5 percent in price. Bitcoin, which fell to its lowest point in 2019 during the recent sale of cryptocurrency, managed to climb in price over $ 3,700. Some analysts now demand that the crypto terminals should come from edge to systemic oversold territory, with the latest price run as a return to the normal price level.
Cryptocourse investors were also treated to a rumor that the SEC is likely to approve a Bitcoin ETF in the future, at least according to information derived from a leaked interview with the SEC commission Robert Jackson. As previously reported by EWN, Jackson said,
"In the end, I think someone will satisfy the standards that we have laid out there? I hope so, yes, and I believe it … Oh getting approval marks from the deepest and most liquid capital markets in the world is difficult and it should be. When we make it available to everyday moms and pop investors, we risk the Americans being hurt. "
With ETF approval, Crypto investors finally receive their long-awaited influx of institutional money.
