Litecoin / USD

Browse our live Litecoin to USD chart to spot the best trading opportunities.

The LTC/USD pair matches one of the earliest and most popular cryptocurrencies – Litecoin – with the globe’s strongest fiat currency – the US dollar. The pairing represents how many USD (the quote currency) are needed to buy one LTC (the base currency).

Created by a former Google (GOOGL) employee in 2011, Litecoin is a peer-to-peer network with the same-name native cryptocurrency, also known as LTC. It was launched to complement Bitcoin (BTC) by solving issues like concentrated mining pools and transaction timings, as well as to make the crypto world more accessible for everyone. 

Often referred to as the “silver to Bitcoin’s gold”, Litecoin’s trading volume has been continuously growing over the years. Today, LTC is among the top ten cryptocurrencies in terms of trading volume, along with the industry’s giants BTC, ETH and XRP.

On the other end of the pair is the US dollar, one of the most financially and economically important fiat currencies across the globe. The USD is usually considered a benchmark currency and is readily accepted in transactions worldwide. Nearly 90 per cent of global forex trading involves the US dollar.

You can track the Litecoin value in real-time and trade the LTC/USD pair with leverage and tight spreads at Capital.com. 

For several months after its launch, the digital coin had been worth around $3. It was only in November 2013, when the market finally saw the first significant price movements. On November 28, the LTC value almost doubled within one day, reaching $50 per coin. 

In April 2014, it dropped to $10 and further to a little over $1 in February 2015. In March 2017, Litecoin announced the launch date of their SegWit protocol upgrade, boosting the coin’s price to soar to $16. In May, the protocol changes were implemented, pushing the LTC price to $30. By September, it reached $70. On December 19, 2017, the Litecoin to dollar rate hit its record high of $375.29, driven by the bullish trend in the overall crypto market.

After losing most of its gains in 2018, the coin increased four times in value from $31.02 to $138.4 during the first half of 2019, on the back of the upcoming Litecoin halving, which happened on August 5, 2019. However, the correction followed, and the LTC price dropped as low as $68 by mid-September and ended the year at $41.48.

In the first half of 2020, the coin experienced multiple price fluctuations, trading in the range of $33 - $83.50.

With Capital.com’s comprehensive chart, you can not only quickly view the price of Litecoin today, but also trace its value in historic terms.

Even after being around for almost a decade, LTC remains very volatile, offering great potential for speculation. Those interested in the LTC/USD trading should keep a close watch of crypto market news, including the coin’s demand, adoption rates, regulations and market sentiment, as well as the Federal Reserve’s releases regarding interest rates and monetary policy changes. 

Traders can try to profit from the Litecoin/US dollar rate fluctuations by taking long or short positions on this crypto-to-fiat pair using Capital.com’s proprietary trading platform that features a real-time LTC vs USD chart and charges zero per cent commission on trades.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
