I already have invested before and hodling and with these news I have no intention to sell indeed, cause I believe LTC could do nicely even long-term.
BTW this is why LTC's risen so much recently.
LITECOIN, one of the world’s leading crypto-currencies, is poised for massive gains this week on the back of a ‘game-changing’ announcement. The peer-to-peer crypto has been in the doldrums for weeks and was today trading at around $145 – down from a high of more than $325 in December.
However fans of Litecoin – essentially a faster spin-off of Bitcoin – are convinced that a new payment processor called LitePay will send the price soaring.
The Litecoin Foundation announced LitePay just before Christmas – but the actual launch of the product is expected this week.
LitePay takes Litecoin out of the cyber realm and places it squarely in real life by allowing businesses to accept payment in Litecoin from anywhere on earth.
Transactions will be super-fast and allow UK-based customers to pay for products and services in dollars with no transaction charges.
A Litecoin wallet will also be available for all major mobile and desktop browsers and instant withdrawals from VISA compatible ATMs and spend with any VISA merchant will be possible.
