ForexMinute.com – Last 24 hours in the cryptocurrency market have been very satisfactory as top coins, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Darkcoin and Dogecoin, saw notable growth in their prices. While Bitcoin was already stagnant for a few days, the big relief came with the price rebounding of Litecoin and Dogecoin prices, which were falling constantly from recent days.
At first, the growth in Litecoin prices can be credited to a joint statement released recently by top ASIC mining machine manufacturers, which says that they all are starting to accept LTC as one of the payments for their products. The manufacturers also introduced a 5% discount on all the products that are sold in LTC. Litecoin creator Charlie Lee himself has welcomed this change and has termed it as a deterministic step to promote the coin’s network stability and future growth.
The aforementioned announcement somewhat also favored Dogecoin for being a Scrypt-based digital currency. However, the impact was minimal at best. But overall, it’s a great news for miners that are already struggling to make enough returns off their investments in ASICs.
