Litecoin sees a spike in on-chain activity- but what’s next for LTC?
Litecoin price was down 3% to trade around $67 on Friday morning.
Santiment wrote on X that the altcoin has seen a rapid increase in on-chain movement.
LTC is seeing a spike in address activity and whale transactions, with metrics at highest levels since June.
The total crypto market is down 1.5% in the past 24 hours to $1.3 trillion, with Bitcoin hovering just above $34,000. Meanwhile, most altcoins are struggling to hold onto recent gains.
But as market observers and analysts put it, the overall outlook is bullish for crypto ahead of what could be a massive bull market in 2024. Could this be the same scenario for Litecoin price?
Litecoin price outlook- what’s next for LTC?
Litecoin’s 24-hour price was down 3%, with recent gains trimmed to about 7% over the past week as it traded around $67.80. The psychological $100 continues to prove a difficult hurdle for bulls, despite there being a burst of on-chain activity.
While address activity and whales both hit June 2023 levels, there has been the observation of dormant LTC suddenly spiking – “usually indicative of more coins beginning to circulate,” the market intelligence platform Santiment wrote in a post on X.

The overall bullish picture for Bitcoin suggests investors could be positioning for a potential uptick in its price. Optimism over factors such as spot Bitcoin ETF approval could help LTC rebound past the main supply wall.
Yet, with dormant coins on the move again, sell-off pressure could be huge in the short term. In this case, a correction could see Litecoin price retreat further, bears likely targeting key support zones in the $60-50 region.
