While the crypto community is watching every Bitcoin (BTC) move with a hawks-eye, Litecoin (LTC) – the world’s seventh-largest cryptocurrency makes a smart move. At press time, Litecoin (LTC) is 7.77% up trading at $67.39 with a market cap of $4.4 billion.
The LTC price surge comes at a time when the overall crypto market seems to be moving sideways. With today’s price surge, Litecoin also extends its year-to-date gains at close to 40%. Litecoin proponents say that the recent move comes in the backdrop of its rising fundamentals.

Grayscale launched its LTCN product earlier this year in March 2020. Moreover, it was initially available only for accredited investors and later became publicly available during August 2020. During Q3 2020, the net investment inflow surged nearly 1800%. The product has outperformed all other peers in the Grayscale family.
Institutional Investors Willing to Gain Exposure to Litecoin (LTC)
With Grayscale’s LTCN showing this surge, one thing is clear that Litecoin remains in the eye of institutional investors. The strong momentum shows that hedge funds and institutional investors are increasing their exposure to Litecoin (LTC).
On the technical charts, LTC’s convincing move above $64 indicates bullish momentum. Thus, there are high chances that the price can test ahead $70 and continue moving ahead up to $80. On the lower side, Litecoin (LTC) can be seen forming support at $65 where it can see some buying interest if it retests those levels.
