Litecoin Prices and Bitcoin Prices Are Trading at Record Highs – Here's Why

Another day, another record high for Litecoin prices and Bitcoin prices. The price of Bitcoin is nearing $5,000 and sat at $4,834.47 per unit in early Friday trading.

Meanwhile, Litecoin surpassed a market capitalization of $4 billion thanks to an 18.3% surge in value over the last 24 hours. Traders in South Korea and China are pouring into the cryptocurrency, with 22% of Litecoin's trading volume in the last 24 hours happening in South Korea, according to CoinDesk.

Overall, the global cryptocurrency market shot to a record $176.4 billion in market capitalization. Part of the surge has been tied to hedge funds, which are pouring capital into the crypto market in order to bolster their returns.

Hedge funds have largely failed to replicate or outperform the broader returns of the S&P 500 over the last five years. Cryptocurrencies, which are blowing the doors off the stock market in 2017, have become a popular asset among money managers.

Top performers from the largest 50 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization included Basic Attention Token (up 25.6%), Ethereum Classic (up 22.9%), Metal (up 36.6%), and PIVX (which jumped more than 43.3%). There were few losers in the industry on Friday. However, Nexus did shed 15.5%, Veritaseum dropped 14.7%, and Monaco fell another 20%.

Below is a recap of the top cryptocurrency prices at 10:00 a.m. EDT.

Bitcoin: $4,834.47, +3.32%

Ethereum: $389.38, +1.41%

Ripple: $0.25, +6.8%

Bitcoin Cash: $598.34, +0.55%

Litecoin: $77.59, +18.3%

Now that we know all of today's price movements, here's what has been moving these cryptocurrencies…

Bitcoin Hits New All-Time High

The bulls of Bitcoin have been out in force this week.

Standpoint Research analyst and founder Ronnie Moas projected that Bitcoin would hit $7,500 by mid-2018 and said it would rally between $15,000 and $20,000 in the next three years.

On Thursday, Bitcoin bull Charlie Shrem hinted that $100,000 for Bitcoin will be considered cheap in the future.

Shrem argued that scarcity – the fact that there will only ever be 21 million BTC – will make it harder and harder to purchase just one.

Ethereum Prices Pushing Toward $400

The Ethereum price was following Bitcoin higher Friday.

The market capitalization of Ethereum surpassed $36.6 billion, but 24-hour volume was far below that of Bitcoin and Litecoin. Many investors are eyeing the psychological level of $400.

Ripple Buying Still Strong in South Korea

The price of Ripple has been on fire this month thanks to a major surge of investment from South Korean traders this month.

In addition, Ripple announced Thursday that Bitcoin IRA, a company engaged in retirement funds that include cryptocurrencies, has added the XRP token to its accounts.

Ripple joins Bitcoin and Ethereum as the three digital currencies in Bitcoin IRA's plans. The firm will add Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum Classic in the coming weeks.

Litecoin Prices Rally to Almost $80

Litecoin flew past the $75.00 mark and hit a new all-time high as speculators in Asia continue to advocate for the "silver to Bitcoin's gold."

There isn't any real reason that one can tie the recent surge in Litecoin prices to over the last few weeks.

However, it appears that many investors are optimistic that Litecoin will have its Lightning Network online before Bitcoin can make similar advancements.

What a day, usually during weekends the price of bitcoin and other altcoin usually tank or go down. But with the current trend, it looks like that this is quite a first time for me to see that bitcoin and all other altcoins are hitting records high. The article says it came from Japan and Korea, do those 2 countries are really putting in cash because of the imminent war with North Korea and getting their money in crypto's is a safe bet for them? I'm still trying to comprehend things now because we are nearing $5000 and I'm considering that we may hit a correction in the following days because the price is going up too fast for me. I'm not saying its a bubble, I just wondering where all the money is coming from and why now?

Litecoin prices have really risen so much that now it's around $ 79,525, but what attracts my attention is that the bitcoin acts independently of the bitcoin, not the etherum, when the price of bitcoin approaches $ 5,000, the etherum risen record with bitcoin in the same way.

Litecoin reached it's maximum yesterday, 92$ on YoBit, I suppose on Chinese exchangers it was a little bit higher. But Litecoin is totally depends from Bitcoin. And when bitcoin  started it's way down Litecoin joined it immediately.
