Bitcoin [BTC], the largest cryptocurrency in the world, took everyone by surprise recently when the prices went over $5000 for the first time since last year. Since then, the prices consolidated and went under corrections but the speculation did not end. Bitcoin continued to make strides; for example, it was recently announced by Binance CEO that Binance Singapore’s Fiat-to-Bitcoin exchange would be launching next week.
Litecoin [LTC] has enjoyed a lucrative year since the beginning of 2019 as the coin had witnessed a staggering 162 percent valuation since December 2018. However, Brian Donovan, BitOoda EVP, claimed that a downward wedge had started to form in the trend chart which indicated that a fall in price was imminent.
