Three Cryptos To Trigger the Next Bullrun: Orbeon Protocol (ORBN), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH)
It's no secret that the cryptocurrency market is in a bear run. However, this doesn't mean that all cryptocurrencies are doomed. In fact, there are three specific cryptos that have the potential to trigger the next bull run: Orbeon Protocol (ORBN), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH).Orbeon Protocol (ORBN) is already seeing a surge in prices during phase 2 of the public presale and prices are currently up 525% since its initial release. >>BUY ORBEON TOKENS HERE>BUY ORBEON TOKENS HERE>BUY ORBEON TOKENS HERE<< Ethereum (ETH) Ethereum (ETH) is a cryptocurrency that completely changed the game. Ethereum (ETH) was not just a currency, but a platform for building decentralized applications and smart contracts. This enabled developers to create new protocols to transact their digital assets without the need for middlemen or third-party gateways. Ethereum (ETH) has experienced strong growth since its inception in 2015, with its current market capitalization surpassing $150 billion. This growth can be attributed to the increasing number of decentralized applications being built on top of Ethereum (ETH). But with such a larger market cap, how can Ethereum (ETH) possibly trigger a bull run? The answer lies in the upcoming Ethereum 2.0 upgrade, which is expected to reduce transaction fees and speed up transaction times. As companies shift their focus to blockchain technology, Ethereum (ETH) could see a surge in prices as the demand for its blockchain technology rises. This could be the spark that sets off a bull run across the entire crypto market.

Casinos Blockchain Provides Important Statistics About Crypto Gambling & Analyses Its Future
CasinosBlockchain.io has prepared a helpful assortment of the most recent Bitcoin casino statistics through which readers can learn how many crypto casinos are available, how much Bitcoin gamblers have already wagered, and plenty more relevant information regarding this popular industry. Moreover, Casinos Blockchain analyzes the future of crypto gambling and answers a few FAQs to make sure readers know everything there is to know about Bitcoin casinos before getting involved, including both the risks and benefits. What are some of the top Bitcoin casino statistics? Gambling has been a popular way to pass the time for many centuries, and it is no different today. However, thanks to the advent and subsequent implementation of innovative technologies like cryptocurrencies, &lsquo;Bitcoin gambling&rsquo; has become exceedingly popular to the point that since 2014, players have actually wagered over $4.5 billion in Bitcoin to date. The global casino industry itself is worth more than $231 billion as of the time of this writing. Moreover, approximately 60% of all Bitcoin transactions are related to gambling in some way, shape or form. What is even more mindblowing is that crypto gamblers place 337 bets every single second, and that these gamblers bet $3 million worth of crypto on a daily basis. The most popular cryptocurrencies for gambling purposes were observed to be Bitcoin and Ethereum, although these are not the only choices that gamblers have as using other altcoins like Litecoin may yield better results. Why does this matter? Despite the fact that land-based casinos and casino resorts suffered significant setbacks as a result of the pandemic and other factors such as inflation, the gambling sector as a whole nevertheless continued to thrive as a substantial portion of players made the shift to online gambling. Furthermore, the casino market is predicted to grow in the coming years. To that end, the revenue of brick-and-mortar casinos in the United States is expected to increase year on year from 2021 to 2024 and experts view this is a key indicator of the projected growth for the casino market. It should be mentioned that although online casinos are becoming more popular on a global scale, it will surely take some time before they become as popular in the United States, given that many states in the country have yet to legalize online casinos and a sizable portion tend to operate without a license. Nevertheless, Straits Research predicts that the global online gambling market will reach $153 billion by the end of 2030, growing at a CAGR of 11.7% during the analysis period. Outside of the United States, Europe has the biggest market share, and it is expected to grow at a 12% CAGR between 2021 and 2030. In addition, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow faster than Europe, with a CAGR of 12.8%, and to reach $50 billion by 2030. Where does crypto fit into all this? Crypto gambling is leading the way in the online gambling industry. Of course, Bitcoin can be used for other purposes like buying NFTs, cars, real estate, and even insurance. Still, the majority of Bitcoin transactions take place in crypto casinos. The most recent Bitcoin gambling statistics therefore indicate that interest in crypto gambling is growing as players continue to prefer cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin over traditional fiat currencies. Although exact figures are difficult to obtain, the global crypto gambling market is estimated to be worth a quarter of a billion dollars by Crypto Wisser. Moreover, as the amount of hybrid casinos grows, the global crypto gambling market is similarly expected to grow in value over time and as an increasing number of people and businesses adopt crypto which many big names like Microsoft, PayPal, Home Depot, and Starbucks already have. Crypto gamblers placed just about three billion crypto-based bets in the first quarter of 2021, according to the most recent Bitcoin casino statistics for 2022. During the same time period, the quantity of these bets increased by 116% to reach over six billion. In fact, within the first quarter of 2022, cryptocurrencies accounted for approximately 36% % of all bets in general. Most crypto gamblers also prefer to play on their smartphones due to the portability aspect. Is crypto gambling safe and where does it go from here? Provably fair games are available at approximately 77.6% of crypto casinos. These games enhance the transparency of crypto casinos which is in stark contrast to traditional casino games, as a provably fair game enables users to verify the outcome of each hand or round played. As a result, provably fair games are frequently preferred among crypto gamblers who value safety and transparency. Also, casino operators can use blockchain technology to access features that are not available in traditional casinos. For instance, crypto casinos could operate at lower costs, with improved security, and with faster withdrawal speeds, just to name a few advantages. The best part about crypto gambling, however, is that blockchain technology has a lot of untapped potential. With all the interest surrounding other emerging technologies nowadays such as NFTs, the metaverse, VR and AR, the sky could well and truly be the limit for this immensely popular industry.

Fantom (FTM) and Mina Protocol (MINA) Struggles in the Market Amidst Sparklo (SPRK) Presales Success
With the market downturn, investors are out searching for cryptocurrency projects they can invest in and hopefully use to increase their portfolios. But, most times, emotions and fear can blind an investor to making a panic decision. This is why investors must make intelligent decisions, as those with assets in Fantom (FTM) and Mina Protocol (MINA) are currently watching as their assets are dropping due to market struggle. Consequently, it leads investors to alternatives like Sparklo, which is currently performing well in its presale. Fantom (FTM) Investors Searching For Alternatives The price movement of Fantom (FTM) hasn't been outstanding recently, as it shows no sign or little sign of its price changing from its downtrend position. With Bitcoin (BTC) dropping below $16,500, this indicates an inflation increase affecting the price of Bitcoin (BTC) and other altcoins. Looking at the charts, over the past seven days, Fantom (FTM) has had a price decline of -26.01%, and even in the past month, it has continued to decline, as seen in its -1.7% price decrease. Fantom currently trades at $0.20, and though Fantom (FTM) is one of the top cryptocurrency projects, it is still presently struggling in the market, and analysts predict that it might not have a reversal in the short term. As a result, investors will have to look at other alternatives if they need to boost their portfolios. Mina Protocol (MINA) Price Fluctuates As The Market Downturn Continues Mina Protocol (MINA) was launched in early 2021, and by June 1st, 2021, it was worth $9.90. After the launch, the market thought the price was overvalued, and it soon fell to a low of $2.76 before it recovered to trade at $3.24. By 2022, analysts valued Mina Protocol (MINA) at $3.59, and just like most cryptocurrencies, Mina Protocol (MINA) was no exception as it struggled with the crypto winter. By January's end, Mina Protocol (MINA) was trading at $2.21, and this downtrend continued till it hit an all-time low of $1.76 on February 24th. After the general market crash, Mina Protocol (MINA) also hit an all-time low by May 12th and was pegged at $0.83. Though the market recovered slightly, the other market crash, which saw the total value of the entire crypto market dip below $1trn, also affected the Mina Protocol (MINA). Nevertheless, Mina Protocol (MINA) has witnessed some recovery of 7.72% in the past 30 days. Analysts predict that since there are no solid fundamentals to back it up, it might only last for a while. Sparklo (Sprk) Presale Records Success With the success of Sparklo&rsquo;s presale, investors have recognized the high growth potential of the token. Fantom (FTM) and Mina Protocol (MINA) are struggling amidst market uncertainty. Sparklo will be the first alternative investment that would allow investors to invest in fractionalized NFTs, backed by real-world assets in the form of gold, silver, or platinum. Sparklo passed its audit from Interfi Network, and to ensure that the project remains safe, the developers will lock its liquidity for 100 years. Additionally, the team&rsquo;s token will be locked for 1,000 days. Sparklo currently goes for a price of $0.013, and analysts predict that the price will increase by more than 100x in the coming months. Investing early in a project ensures that investors get maximum gains. So this might be the best time to get in on Sparklo.

Tron (TRX) Falls Behind Litecoin (LTC) And Both Fall To The Hideaways
Over the previous 24 hours, Litecoin (LTC) had a 28% increase. After several weeks of significant losses for cryptocurrencies, Tron falls behind LTC's price increase, falling behind 12.7% in the last week. Litecoin continues to lead the crypto market, leaving Tron and other cryptocurrencies behind. But there still might be hope for TRX. Stop investing in dino-coins like Tron and Litecoin and research new coins such as The Hideaways (HDWY). Is There A Chance For Tron Revival? With a market value of almost $4.7 billion, Tron (TRX) was trading at $0.051675 and had experienced a negative 4.5% increase over the previous day. The oversold reading on TRX's RSI appeared bullish. This gave TRX a good impression since it suggested that the trend would soon reverse. Moreover, during the past week, TRON's development activity has seen positive progress, which is a good indicator of the coin. The remaining metrics, however, were against a price increase. Over the past week, TRON's NFT ecosystem has seen a downturn as its overall NFT trade count and trading volume in USD decreased after peaking. As bears surround TRX, it might struggle to reach a price reversal in the coming months. Litecoin Shoots Up 28.9% Litecoin (LTC) is the 13th largest cryptocurrency in market capitalization. Users are starting to think of LTC as a store of value as the coin's trading volume has increased by 123.12% in the last 24 hours. LTC Foundation stated last week that over 60 million Litecoins had been kept in deep freeze for over a year, guaranteeing bullish signs to investors. To reach the $5 billion market cap, Litecoin will decrease its fresh issuance of LTC from 12.5 to 6.25 for every transaction. Veterans are claiming LTC as the next Bitcoin due to the coin being a low-risk investment. Why The Hideaways Is The Best Utility Token Are you looking for a crypto investment to help you buy your dream property?

The team decided to put a two-year time limit on HDWY tokens and a 999-year liquidity freeze, so your investment will be well-spent! Let go of your fear of crypto scams.

Litecoin was launched in 2011 by former Google and Coinbase engineer Charles Lee (also known as Charlie Lee), who described it as a “lite version of Bitcoin.” It is one of the first altcoins based on Bitcoin’s original open-source code, albeit with several modifications. 

Litecoin (LTC) was designed to be faster and more efficient than Bitcoin (BTC). For instance, block creation on the Bitcoin network takes 10 minutes, whereas a block on the Litecoin blockchain only takes about 2.5 minutes. Similarly, Litecoin can process around 56 transactions per second (TPS) compared to around 5 TPS on Bitcoin. 

Although Litecoin gained considerable traction in its early days, it has continued to underperform against Bitcoin and is often criticized for being little more than a Bitcoin clone. However, given its faster transaction times, lower fees and decent liquidity on exchanges, Litecoin is often used to move value across crypto platforms.

LTC price 

According to our LTC live price chart, Litecoin price in USD terms hovered around $5 until March 2017, except for the brief rally in late 2013, when the price of LTC surpassed $40. In 2017, however, the altcoin saw a price surge of more than 2,000% between March and September, going from around $4 to nearly $90 before dropping again.

LTC price took off again near the end of 2017, trading around $365 on Dec. 18 to post a new all-time high with a year-to-date gain of over 8,000%. This bullish price action could not continue, however, and LTC price quickly fell to around $100 in February 2018.

Barring a few brief rallies, the price of LTC continued to decline throughout 2018, trading below $25 by December that year. Despite LTC price recovering to $140 by June 2019, it couldn't go much higher and traded below $30 again in March 2020.

Amid a wider crypto market rally in May 2021, LTC price climbed to a new high, surging past $410, only to decline by over 50% in the following 6 months. By Dec. 31, 2021, the price of Litecoin stood around $145, but the price decline continued through Q1 2022, with LTC frequently testing the $100 level.

How LTC works

Like Bitcoin, Litecoin uses the proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism to secure its network. PoW requires miners to solve complex computational problems using powerful hardware. The miner who solves the mathematical problem first is responsible for validating network transactions and organizing them in a block to obtain the block reward. The continued series of such blocks creates the blockchain with immutable records.

However, Litecoin uses the ‘Scrypt’ algorithm, which requires high-speed random access memory (RAM), unlike Bitcoin, whose mining requires more processing power. This means that people can, theoretically, mine Litecoin on their personal computers and do not need to spend on specialized mining equipment. Lee developed the Scrypt algorithm to make it difficult to launch attacks on Litecoin, making the cryptocurrency more secure.

The total supply of Litecoin is capped at 84 million, compared to 21 million for Bitcoin. Because of Litecoin’s similarity to Bitcoin, it has served as a functional test network for updates that could also be deployed on the Bitcoin network. These updates include Segregated Witness or SegWit, which was adopted by Litecoin in 2017, and the Lightning Network, a Layer 2 technology aimed at improving scalability.  

LTC news, updates, and highlights

Litecoin’s adoption of SegWit in May 2017, marked a landmark achievement. It pushed LTC price to above $30 from around $5 a year ago. The same year saw LTC price setting a major high above $360 followed by Litecoin founder selling his entire holding, citing conflict of interest.

In July 2019, Litecoin became the official cryptocurrency of the Miami Dolphins, the National Football League team. The partnership came into effect in September 2019, allowing fans to purchase tickets with Litecoin.

Lee pledged to continue funding the Litecoin Foundation in August 2019, even as concerns were brewing around the nonprofit's financial sustainability. After Litecoin’s halving on Aug. 5, 2019, which reduced mining rewards to 12.5 LTC from 25 LTC, mining power on the Litecoin network dropped by 28%

In a bid to recover its position amid waning interest in Litecoin, Lee announced a shift in focus towards privacy in late 2020. He said that the token is looking to adopt several privacy-enhancing features, which are being tested before deployment.

On October 20, 2021, PayPal confirmed its buy, hold, and sell feature for cryptocurrencies, with Litecoin as one of the supported tokens. The announcement led to LTC price surging by over 10% in the following 24 hours. 

Frequently asked questions about LTC

  • Can you mine or stake LTC?

Since Litecoin uses the PoW consensus mechanism, you can only mine Litecoin (and not stake it). However, unlike Bitcoin, it does not require specialized mining equipment — you can mine Litecoin using home computers, although large-scale miners dominate the market. 

  • What are the differences between Litecoin and Bitcoin?

Although Lee touted the token as the “silver” to Bitcoin’s “gold,” there are several differences between the two cryptocurrencies, including transaction processing capability, block generation time, the maximum token supply and transaction fees, among others. 

  • What can you do with LTC?

Litecoin can be used to pay network fees, make and receive payments across the globe, or used as a bridge currency to avoid high fees on networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum. 

  • How to buy LTC and trade it?

You can easily use fiat currencies to buy LTC on centralized exchanges like MEXC and eToro. You can also buy Litecoin using other tokens like BTC on exchanges like HitBTC.
