Bitcoin has advanced five percent in 24 hours as Litecoin tops $50 again amid renewed enthusiasm in crypto markets.
Averaged statistics from Coinmarketcap show a healthy uptick in top ten currency prices to press time Tuesday, with only Ethereum posting comparatively lackluster performance.
Having dropped as low as $2,320 last month, Bitcoin saw moderate peaks and troughs before finally retaking $2,600 – its first break since a slide from around $2750 June 24.
Litecoin’s growth was much more pronounced, however, with a sudden surge back above $50 surprising traders.
The altcoin had increased from around $29 to break a $2 bln market cap in June, before dropping in line with Bitcoin and languishing below $40 until July 2.
Litecoin creator Charlie Lee had much to celebrate this week. Meanwhile, his Litecoin Foundation receiving a further donation worth 666 LTC ($33,500) from Litecoin miner-manufacturer Innosilicon.
