Default Coinbase Now Trading Litecoin

Price will likely spike further. May want to throw some change at LTC (Litecoin) sooner than later. And by "change" i mean pocket change, play money, etc. Very volatile, but an opportunity I wanted to share anyway.

Reasoning is that coinbase.com is currently one of (if not the) largest cryptocurrency exchanges out there. The fact that they now trade LTC is a big deal and will only happen once (obviously).

Again, if you are in the market for such an investment, you should already be aware of the volatility. Could go down just as fast as it has gone up. YMMV

$20 to $30 in a matter of about an hour.

Update: And back down to 26. Gotta be careful.

LTC back up to $27-ish now. Volatility has smoothed out somewhat, but still a hot potato. Solid buy yesterday at $19.50.

BTC has jumped substantially to $1620, which is absolutely insane.

ETH has also had a huge jump to $93.

Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) is trading at $187.50, a huge premium over BTC. Probably best to just buy BTC IMO.

BTC up to 1780... absolute madness IMO. But im not going to complain at this point.
ETH relatively stagnant at 90
LTC up to 36. About 100% gain from a week ago.

GBTC at 240!!! I sold remaining shares at 190 :-/

UPDATE: For anyone who cares... probably just me ;-) but segwit (Segregated Witness) activation on litecoin occurs in 2 hours 30 minutes. Volatility will be relatively high.

I'm sure you're still tracking BTC. :-). It's still going crazy. I wish I was in the game.

You bet. BTC approaching 2k. Etherium over $120! LTC kinda fell flat around $26... But there is really not a whole lot of things that are special about LTC... its more or less a testing ground for BTC, like Segwit, Lightning network, etc.

I have made a bundle on ETH this year which I sold my cost at 98 a couple weeks ago but it has recently flirted with 200.

Bought ETH when India had its large note confiscation which I thought was a general catalyst for cryptocurrencies in general and its one market not price controlled by central banks and their affiliates.

Take a look at GBTC today... its gone cuckoo-bannanas, up over 40% today alone at $415. Each share represents about .09 BTC

.09 * 2450 = $220.5

So people are apparently fine paying $415 for $220.5 worth of BTC? (88% premium)

Yeah, I dont get it...

Litecoin crossed $50

Ethereum touched $400 a few days ago (~370 now)

Tons of money to be made in crypto-currency... but VERY volatile.

I took out initial investment so I am on house money now.
