In the first half of the year, the coin grew in value, as investors stocked LTC due to the threat of a cryptocurrency deficit after the August halving. However, Litecoin couldn’t break through the $200 mark, which was expected by many analysts.
Already at the end of June, LTC began to decline due to the fact that many traders were disappointed in the prospects of the coin. At the same time in the crypto-community, some experts said that Litecoin had exhausted the potential for maintaining upward movement dynamics.
