Erstwhile, Huobi had added a Moon Landing Countdown Clock to its platform, indicating the remaining time left for the launch of its Litecoin trading services.

Litecoiners are happy!

Litecoin community is quite overwhelmed with the currency coming back to its feet gradually, especially in times when there is a frenzy among investors and governments regarding the volatility of cryptocurrencies. The community is also feeling wonderful about Litecoin taking its “silver to Bitcoin” tag seriously and emerging as the foremost Bitcoin alternative in the market.

The only competitors that can now challenge Litecoin for the next-best seat are Dogecoin and Auroracoin. While the former has recently showed a heart rendering humanitarian act by helping Kenya people in their need for clean drinking water, the latter is still waiting for its Airdrop over Icelandic denizens with a hope to stabilize Iceland’s failing economy.

The Litecoin momentum, if stayed steady, will also help the lower hierarchy in getting better investments. Let’s hope for the best.
