Congratulations to all genuine holders on the resurgence of Litecoin. For me is was unexpected. Some might find that the current valuation at $7.63 is unprecedented, but am I right in remembering that it was was once at $20.00+?

I sold all my Litecoin for Bitcoin and now have interests in others coins that have also performed well. However, I've always been well-disposed towards Litecoin and have found it to be fast and reliable. You now are bound to get some subtle detractors with hidden agendas. As an antidote to any FUD spreading in this thread I'd like to quote this very early post from 2011, which put it quite bluntly:

@Coblee

Ignore the idiots, they will ask questions they know the answer to just to hijack thread and bloat it with BS. Litecoin sounds like a plan.


I would second that.

Any reason why such jump in price?

plenty of reasons, non the least people using ltc as a safehaven from the current btc dramas. i'm not sure the block halving is yet that much of an influence, days are a longterm in such market activity let alone over a month.

Do you guys ever see LTC going to BTC prices in the coming years? I know no one can say for sure but what are your thoughts?


What use case does LTC have coming?

Are companies going to accept it ever like Alienware?

If Bitcoin will go to the moon, lets say 10,000 USD, then Litecoin will follow and reach 100-200-500 USD as well. Its not about merchant acceptance its about human behavior and its like Gold-Silver relation. There are a lot of people around who do not have money to buy Bitcoin at 10,000 USD or not even at 1,000 USD, so they will choose the second candidate, Litecoin!

In conclusion, if Bitcoin will skyrocket, Litecoin will follow, thats for sure!

I dont know, there are 3 coins what have prove themself in the last years, that are bitcoin and litecoin, also dogecoin what came later is still in the top.
All other coins are pumped and dumped to the top, the only 3 u see always in the top 5 are bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin.

Bitcoin = accepted and world wide ( everybody knows bitcoin )
Litecoin = almost accepted + more coins
Dogecoin = massive coins

all the 3 coins got something what the other from those 3 dont have. So i think this is not just something from the last year(s) but also something for the comming years, those coins has proved themself to be the best of the best.

All other (mined) coins u see raised to the top, get traded for bitcoin/litecoin or dogecoin and are out of the top and dying slowly. People dont take other coins outside those 3 serious, the only thing they want is trade it for those 3. (pumped and dumped)
Also big community's from those ''shit''coins (how u called it Cheesy ) are there just for the pump and waiting to sell it for bit/litecoin or dogecoin. Just an example: navajocoin, big community what try to show the rest of the people that navajo will take over all the coins and will be the best of the best. Dev's posting sometimes: big news is comming, community says it's the best coin what will be world wide known as the best of the best.. And navajo will be the future from crypto..
It's nothing else like shittalk, pure words for pumps so the devs / ''loyal'' community will dump coins for bitcoin.

Its not only navajocoin what is pure a scam pump and dump, but also almost all other coins. Only thing people want are bitcoins

We passed 8.5$, next stop 10$. And then 15 - 20 - 40 - 50$. We can see all time high before block halving.

That sell off when Bitcoin jumped was nasty. Sold in the middle of the freefall at .0027, just bought back at .002 or so, looking to how it recovers now.  I wish I knew where my android tablet with LTC on it went  Shocked

Heya,

Today we added Litecoin (LTC) as a payout option on our multipool, www.xpool.ca

We will also soon add so it can also be mined directly.

Cheers!

Did Litecoin testnet forked?

On my test machines {no real money or important data involved} I noticed that Macintosh 0.10.2.2 is at block 641381, whereas the Windows 0.10.2.2 is at block 641439. Litecoin mainnet and both Bitcoin nets are still staying in sync on the same physical hardware.

Those are test machines, so I blew away 'chainstate' and 'blocks' directories on Macintosh and restarted the synchronization with -connect to the Windows machine. The synchronization stalled at block 640000 with repeated errors:

ERROR: ContextualCheckBlockHeader : rejected nVersion=2 block
ERROR: invalid header received

The synchronization went 381 blocks further when I removed -connect and let it synchronize from the Internet.

Anyone here knows what is going on?
