Meanwhile, eToro Senior Market Analyst Mati Greenspan has prepared an in-depth report on Litecoin, where he concluded that the coin has a potential to become a cryptocurrency of choice for small transactions and thus gain widespread adoption.  

“According to the metrics we have analyzed below, the current price that LTC is trading at could be seen as a massive discount to what it should be worth,” the expert writes in the report.

Mr. Greenspan explains that Litecoin is already widely used as a store of value and means of exchange, while various partnership deals between Litecoin Foundation and big players in crypto and traditional finances lay the ground for its long-term success.
