  • From hyper_cubist:

    1/ It seems like there is a psyop going on with $LINK. Since when does a crypto project with a market capitalization smaller than Litecoin write whitepapers with the World Economic Forum @wef? Still, there is continuous dumping, even at historic lows.

  • From lite_hause:

    Litecoin is on track to activate MWEB in 2021.Litecoin activated SegWit on 5/10/2017, 4 years prior.They say crypto markets move in 4 year intervals. Interestingly enough, it seems that so do major Litecoin upgrades.Coincidence or precisely planned? 🤭
