Meanwhile, in a recent tweet, popular trader John Bollinger said that LTC has “woken up” from slumber.

Recently, whales accumulated more than $40 million worth of LTC in just two weeks. Earlier this month, Texas-based money transfer giant MoneyGram also allowed its customers to buy and sell the altcoin on its mobile app.

LTC Foundation said over 60 million Litecoin have been in cold storage for more than one year, sending bullish signals to investors.

The Dogecoin DOGE/USD ‘relative’ also surpassed meme coin Shiba Inu SHIB/USD by market capitalization, climbing to 13th place.
