Litecoin may have slipped in market cap and is currently below the top 20. However, the coin is in green, outperforming Bitcoin and Ethereum in the past 24 hours. At spot rates, LTC is up two percent against the USDTand unwinding the losses of August 26.

Litecoin may be undervalued
For Litecoin to turn the corner there must be fundamental primers to fuel the next leg up. At the top of this is how the network finds adoption.

It serves as its experimental protocol, a testing ground for testing exciting improvements set for final deployment on Bitcoin. As Bitcoin’s silver, their stance has worked out.
However, with more altcoins sprouting, the Litecoin network’s activity is lower, which can be counterproductive. Its low fees may not even help at the moment despite adoption from LiteBringer’s developers. Still, supporters are confident that Litecoin could be undervalued gauged from the network’s unique addresses viz-a-viz its spot market cap.
Besides, the general inclination from whales to hold LTC could also indicate interest which is overly bullish for the coin.
