Massive $1 Million Bitcoin (BTC) Bounty Revealed Plus Ripple and XRP, Ethereum, Tron, Litecoin, Cardano, IOTA
From a huge Bitcoin bounty to a new milestone for Litecoin, here?s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto. A treasure hunt for $1 million worth of Bitcoin is underway, thanks to a mysterious message from space. According to an anonymous message broadcast on a satellite operated by Blockstream, the keys to a million-dollar Bitcoin wallet have been split into a thousand pieces. The first person to collect 400 of those pieces can unlock the treasure using ?the magic of the wizard Shamir? ? a reference to a cryptographic algorithm called Shamir?s Secret Sharing, which was developed by Adi Shamir back in 1979.

Litecoin's Hashrate Tests Highest Range Again as Coingate Campaigns Against Hodling
The Litecoin network hashrate is at its highest range since its inception. Though the push to an all time high (359,437T) on April 9 could not be adequately tied to Litecoin?s block halving coming in four months, it is a boost to its network?s state. The build-up has been somewhat slow since the hashrate nosedived below half its current range by the end of 2018 despite it had a meteoric rise earlier in the year. Since its inception, this speed at which mining machines on Litecoin operate has only been close to being this high in May 2018. The rise in hashrate shows the new height of mining activities on the network. It says a lot about the network?s safety against any 51% attack. However, this is not necessarily a bullish sign for Litecoin?s price to rise. Rather, it is an indication that more hands have joined the rigs to probably get more Litecoin before its block reward supply gets halved by August.

Coinbase and Visa launch the Coinbase card, a Visa debit card which can be used to spend Coinbase bitcoin, ethereum, XRP, and litecoin balances
Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies, including ethereum, Ripple's XRP, and litecoin, have long struggled against accusations they are harder to spend and use in the real world than their traditional fiat counterparts. The bitcoin price, which leaped higher last week to trade around $5,000 per bitcoin, has been called too unstable and volatile to be used as a means of payment, resulting in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies being used more of a store of value, like gold, than traditional means-of-exchange currency. Now, major bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has teamed up with global payments processor Visa to try to change that, launching the Coinbase Card which allows users to "spend crypto as effortlessly as the money in their bank."

Litecoin has been making massive headway over the past few weeks. The 6th largest digital asset in the world by market cap has struck gold by beating all previous resistance levels set forth following its December 2017 mega rally.
Litecoin has been making massive headway over the past few weeks. The cryptocurrency ? a primary competitor to bitcoin and the sixth-largest digital asset in the world by market cap ? has struck gold by beating all previous resistance levels set forth following its December 2017 mega rally. At that time, Litecoin was trading for over $400, though like most cryptocurrencies, it fell deeply in the red following the bearish conditions of 2018. Since then, it has struggled just to reach the $100 mark, though just two days ago, Litecoin did just that. After breaking $80, the currency went on to hit $87, $90 and then $100 respectively in what?s been a steady bull run that?s comparable to both bitcoin and Ethereum.

Litecoin Most Trending Coin So Far This Year, Say Market Sentiment Analytics
Home » TRON and Litecoin are the Most Trending Coins So Far This Year, Say Market Sentiment Analytics We asked our friends at Predicoin to extract the cumulative data for the 2019 first quarter and pull out the strongest cryptocurrencies by the buzz score they received during this period. Let?s face it, the cryptocurrency markets can be a bewildering place. With literally thousands of cryptocurrencies categorized into dozens of varieties vying for your attention, it can be challenging to identify which are worth your time and (potentially) your investment. Thankfully, several platforms have stepped up to the task, acting to simplify the process by using artificial intelligence to automatically track different cryptocurrencies while reducing the task of comparing investment options down to something as simple as comparing a few market indicators.
