Litecoin (LTC) Price Sees 1.54% Increase, On Course for $80

Not so long ago, crypto prices began to change course from bearish to bullish. One worthy mention is the bullish match spearheaded by Bitcoin on April 2. Despite this new swing of bullish momentum, questions still remain in the crypto space. The reason for this is that the bullish momentum hasn’t been sustainable. The price of Litecoin and other altcoins have been fluctuating. Now Tom Lee who serves as the co-founder and head of research at Fundstrat has decided to weigh in on the matter.

According to Lee, a drop in the correlation between BTC and altcoins indicates that the “alt season or bull run has begun already. The Fundstrat executive believes that the new wave of bullish sentiment will push the value of the overall crypto market by 1,100% in coming months or years. Lee arrived at this by averaging the percentage of gains collectively recorded by altcoins in the most last crypto bull run.

Should we expect the next crypto bull run to be stronger than that from the past?  Only time will tell. However, going by Lee’s calculations if the right factors are in place we should expect a better crypto bull run. Let’s see how the price of Litecoin has faired in the last 24 hours.
