The cryptocurrency has been hovering around $55 level for the past few weeks. But it has been following a downward trend since the end of June. The halving event also failed to provide any positive momentum.
But over the last eight years, the coin has managed to establish itself in the crypto space. Several coins have come and gone, but Litecoin managed to survive the test of time.
