Litecoin [LTC] recently achieved a milestone by flipping Solana [SOL] to become the 15th largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization. As per CoinMarketCap, at press time, LTC was trading at $60.71 with a market cap of more than $4.37 billion. 

LTC’s weekly performance also looked pretty promising, as its price increased over 8% in the last seven days. However, can this new achievement stand as a consequence of Solana’s downfall, or was something actually working in favor of Litecoin? A look at LTC’s on-chain metrics gave a clearer picture of the entire situation.

Good days to follow LTC?

According to the Litecoin Foundation’s latest tweet, the Litecoin Network just processed its 135,000,000th transaction. This, too, was a remarkable milestone, as it represented the reliability of the network, that had been live for over a decade now. 

Since all these developments looked optimistic for LTC, let’s dive into the altcoin’s metrics to understand whether the recent price pump was sustainable.

Litecoin’s volume registered an uptick lately, which was good news for the network. Not only that, but LTC’s Binance funding rate also went up, reflecting higher interest from the derivatives market.

Nonetheless, not everything was working in LTC’s favor. This was because a few metrics revealed the possibility of a downtrend. At press time, LTC had already registered over 4% negative daily gains, further increasing the chances of a bearish takeover.

Furthermore, LTC’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) Ratio also registered a slight downtick recently. This could be taken as a bearish signal. Moreover, the coin‘s weighted sentiment also followed the same path and marked a decline, reflecting less popularity for the coin in the crypto community.

Things could get interesting for LTC because…

Interestingly, though a few of the metrics were unsupportive of LTC, market indicators provided much-needed relief. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) was resting just at the neutral mark, opening up the possibility of an uptrend. Moreover, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon revealed that the bulls were leading the market as the 20-day EMA was above the 55-day EMA.
