Litepay card is in beta now, but will be a full version on February, and then we'll be able to get started with it! That is a great accomplish for Litecoin, in my opinion this is a big step forward and will count for LTC price! There are several services that offer a crypto based debit card, but by far, I preffer Litecoin!

It will be great when this is launched!

How can we avail of this card? Is it a physical card? Any place where we can read up on it?

Yes, it will be a physical card, from what I understand, and you will be able to pay with LTC where is accepted and to convert LTC in US dollars! You can find the info here https://www.litepay.us !

I don't have the hardware resources to do mining anymore.  Would anyone know if there's still a way to mine for LTC given this constraint. For example, is there any reputable site allowing us to join and mine?

After some thinking, I think that Charles Lee decided to sell his coins due to conflicts with LTC and his ownership of Coinbase. Due to regulations and legal concerns, he most likely had to choose one over the other. I suppose that he chose Coinbase over LTC as a long term project.

He may still believe in LTC, but perhaps this was how he would get the most value out of both projects. I still think that LTC is a great coin, and I'm coming back around to the idea that it has a good future.

No he just made millions in real money by selling you monopoly money on top of the market .  "Investors " dreaming about $300 price but soon you will ask yourself "why didn't sold for $180"

No. Buying mining contracts (cloud mining) was never profitable. It has the same price/difficulty risks as mining with your own hardware. Plus you cannot sell the hardware if you want to get out.

Is there any scope for Litecoin left now, given that its creator has dumped all his holdings. The reasons for selling do not matter as much as the confidence lost in LTC because of this action. I was very hopeful of the Lightening Network proposal which would have boosted value of LTC significantly. LTC had good future but now all seems to have been lost, will the it bounce back in 2018 or die a slow death?

BTC was the first. Since its release in 2009, it's become the most famous, established and valuable cryptocurrency. But it's not the only game in town.
Litecoin followed in 2011.
Created by Charles Lee, an engineer who later helped build Coinbase, the leading cryptocurrency exchange, Litecoin is based on the same code as Bitcoin but with a few tweaks designed to address two of its predecessor's limitations: transaction speed and access to the mining process.  
Litecoin offers its own advantages. Its creator is a known and active entity in the cryptocurrency community.
It has a capacity for faster transactions -- a potential advantage in and of itself, which also provides for a different set of use cases than Bitcoin. And it still offers the potential for profitable mining, unlike Bitcoin.

Yeah LTC is more than undervalued and I hold it not only  for sentimental reasons. But what rank did he get from Weiss ratings?

I see. Thanks. So, it seems the best way/only way to get LTC now is by buying. Is that right?

If mining with your own hardware is not an option, buying is the only way to get them, yes.

i imagined cloud mining back in 2013 ~ running it on university computers Wink TEKcoin code is forked from LTC and you could in theory mine with cloud servers becuase low diff ~also via staking mechanism and make alot of coins :-D hope this helps ===>

And where such awareness? Or is it just blind faith on anything not grounded? For example, I bought it for the purpose of selling more expensive, and it fell even lower, therefore, there is a certain doubt in your words.
