The LTC price surge came just in time as the Bitcoin trend was trying to make a break.

The upside correction took the pair as high as the $12,444 on Friday, but the Bitcoin failed to hold the gains during the weekend.

The famous DonAlt famous cryptocurrency analyst, stated back on Saturday that Litecoin has one of the best-looking charts on the market and with the halving event Litecoin could become more scarce by cutting the supply rate in half. He pointed out:
‘’I’m still waiting for the weekly close but if it does close anywhere above the green box/line I’ll long targeting new highs.”
The latest cryptocurrency news reported that the LTC supply reduction could affect the reward that is mainly used by the miners. This could also cause a drop in the Litecoin’s blockchain hashrate since the miners start allocating the computational power to more profitable cryptocurrencies. However, Charlie Lee begs to differ. He believes that the LTC miners would still be profitable despite the rewards reduction:
“If some miners stop mining, block times go up for a while (maybe a week) before difficulty readjusts and makes mining profitable again and miners will come back. Litecoin won’t die.”
