Litecoin’s (LTC) price hit a one-month high on Monday amid a broader bullish tone in the cryptocurrency market.
The world’s seventh largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization reached $68.59 at 12:10:00 UTC – its highest price since August 7th, Litecoin Price Index – and was last seen trading at $68.18, up roughly 4.2 percent on the day.
The recent bullish mood in cryptocurrency markets could be attributed to bitcoin’s 20 percent rally from the August low of $6,000. More importantly, the world’s leading cryptocurrency by market capitalization is looking up, having witnessed a pennant breakout, as CoinDesk previously reported.
Litecoin’s market capitalization stands at $3.95 billion – its highest level since early August. The broader market is also flashing green. Names like bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH) and EOS are all recording price growth in the past 24 hours. Meanwhile, Monero (XMR) is the biggest gainer among the top 10 cryptocurrencies with a more than 10 percent price increase since yesterday.
