Litecoin on-chain activity explodes, analysts predict LTC price rally
The total number of Litecoin transactions have crossed over 140,000 in the past week. The Litecoin Foundation’s announcement of a debit card triggered a spike in on-chain activity on the LTC network.
Potential Litecoin debit card users can spend their LTC holdings across 50 million merchant stores, increasing the utility and usage of the altcoin. Litecoin’s acceptance is currently less than half of Bitcoin.
Commonwealth Bank of Australia announced that users will now have access to buy, sell and hold Litecoin in the bank’s application- CommBank. It is Australia’s first bank to offer the service through its mobile application. The bank has partnered with Gemini, a cryptocurrency custodian and exchange, to offer the service to users.
In the coming weeks, the bank has scheduled the pilot and plans to roll out features in a phased manner to more customers in 2022.
