Can Litecoin Halving Spark Crypto Alt Season and Boost Bitcoin Price Higher?
Each halving in Bitcoin is typically front run by a bull cycle, where the price of the leading cryptocurrency by market cap experiences rapid volume expansion and price mark up. The digital silver to Bitcoin’s digital gold, Litecoin, also experiences such a phenomenon ahead of its halving – an event scheduled at regular intervals that reduces the block reward miners receive for validating the network.
With Litecoin’s halving in less than 70 days away, the market is watching the #5 ranked cryptocurrency to see if it once again carries the market higher. The last time Litecoin caused the entire crypto market to rally, it was the catalyst that helped put in Bitcoin’s bear market bottom and sparked a mini alt season. Will Litecoin once again spawn an all-out alt season and help Bitcoin’s parabolic move trend even higher?

The halving, which will see the block reward miners receive cut in half, taking the reward from 25 LTC to just 12.5 LTC.

While the #5 ranked cryptocurrency was able to help Bitcoin continue to climb higher, Litecoin itself has gained 10% against the BTC ratio on the LTC/BTC trading pair. Against USD the LTC pair is in a clear, valid uptrend.

The reason behind Litecoin dominance increasing relative to Bitcoin, is due to the closer proximity of Litecoin’s halving, which is fueling the positive sentiment.
$LTC not going long into resistance but will be slowing starting to add to my bag as we head straight towards the next halving in roughly 75 days for #litecoin.

Those that are overly bullish on Litecoin have to look no further than previous halving to justify their positions. In the past, price rose rapidly ahead of each halving. There’s also a potential fractal playing out, according to some traders.
