It seems like it was just yesterday that we told our readers how to buy Litecoin, when prices were climbing over $100 on Nov. 29, 2017. LTC prices then skyrocketed 275%, to $375.29 per coin, on Dec. 18, 2017, but are now below $100 again.
With retail crypto investors wondering if they should still hold on to their coins, we wanted to see what a group of experts had to say.
Joseph Raczynski, of JoeTechnologist.com, believes that Litecoin could trade for $150 by the end of 2018.
"People still have some faith it LTC. I'm watching it, but I'm not as sold on it in the short term as some of the others in the Top 10," he told Finder.com.
Craig Cobb, of TraderCobb.com, is also bullish on Litecoin, with a price target of $200 by the end of the year.
However, fintech investor Clayton Daniel believes prices are going to drop to $50 by Dec. 31, 2018.
"It provides zero advantages over other niche products gaining market share, and the founder sold out long ago at the top of the market," Daniel told Finder.com.
