Litecoin’s bullish breakout along with the BTC movement sends out strong signals ahead.
Long-term, #Litecoin has been losing its value with respect to #bitcoin so far.

Total AUM of Grayscale Litecoin Trust Jumps Touches $60 Million
While the LTC price is making a strong surge, it is most likely driven by institutional money flow. The Grayscale Litecoin Trust (LTCN) has seen its assets under management (AUM) surging over 70% in November so far. As of the latest update on November 18, there a net inflow of an additional $25 million worth of funds in LTCN.
In its latest tweet, digital asset manager Grayscale admits that the LTCN has been one of its most attractive products for investors during 3Q20.
In 3Q20, we saw an increased appetite for Grayscale Bitcoin Cash Trust, Grayscale Litecoin Trust, and Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund. On average, these products saw inflows increase by more than 1400% quarter-over-quarter. Read the full report here. https://t.co/F48x8d0frs pic.twitter.com/1qKi3uCzOj

This clearly indicates a strong interest in LTC and one could go for a long. Interestingly, Litecoin has also surpassed the AUM for Grayscale Bitcoin Cash Trust this month.
While Bitcoin (BTC) is just within 10% of its all-time high, Litecoin (LTC) has still a lot of catching up to do ahead. LTC is still down 80% from its all-time high of $420 in December 2017. Maybe the next alt season can change the fortune for LTC investors. Along with LTC, all other top-ten altcoins are in green at press time.
