Bitcoin Edges Up, But Litecoin Zooms On News Of Lightning Network

Investing, News | December 16, 2018 By:

Trading volume was low, but bitcoin managed to crawl up a percentage point in Sunday trading, now rising to $3,200 after threatening to dip below $3,000.

Bargain hunters were clearly on the move, as ether was up more than two percent, while Litecoin was up close to 10 percent on news that its long-awaited Lightning Network may be deployed soon.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV were both up bit-time, no doubt a continuation of its ongoing battle for dominance rather than investor passion.
