Litecoin [LTC], the silver counterpart of Bitcoin [BTC] is considered as one of the most dominant altcoins. The coin is scheduled for a block reward halving on August 6, 2019.

After a particular halving, the virtual asset is supposed to witness a bullish trend. However, Tone Vays believes that Litecoin [LTC] halving will be bearish for the altcoin’s future.

At a recent meet up held in Philadelphia, Tony Vays was asked to express his views on the LTC halving. Vays stated that it would be entirely bearish for Litecoin and would be particularly bullish for Bitcoin [BTC].

He explained his statement and said that Bitcoin [BTC] halving usually reminded miners of scarcity. The scarcity factor usually drives up the value factor of a virtual asset, which makes it more profitable for the miners to mine.

Tony Vays stated,

“In the case of Litecoin [LTC], the scarcity is not a major factor because Litecoin is unsecured inflation on top of Bitcoin.”

Additionally, Tone Vays stated that Litecoin [LTC] had more competitors in the market compared to the dominant Bitcoin [BTC]. He mentioned that Litecoin halving should remind the industry that there was no value to mine Litecoin [LTC] in the current market. On the contrary, he believes that Bitcoin [BTC] halving will create opportunities for miners to find more valuable Bitcoins.

Tony Vays said,

“Litecoin is easily replaceable, so investing a lot of money in Litecoin mining infrastructure only to watch Litecoin disappear in the halving is a problem. Hence, halving is a major problem for Altcoins but, not necessarily for Bitcoin.”

He added that the bullish trend after the Litecoin [LTC] halving would not drive Bitcoin’s [BTC] price valuation through any major highs, but would still play a crucial role.

The cryptocurrency market has witnessed major price hikes over the past few weeks, with Craig Wright’s Bitcoin SV emerging as the market’s unlikely performer. The Craig Wright-backed virtual asset, which is supposed to follow Satoshi Nakamoto’s original idea, outperformed every top 10 cryptocurrency over the past week, recording a growth rate of 22.86%.

At press time, the coin had recorded a price hike of 6.84% over the hour, with the coin valued at $228. The coin was traded the highest on CoinBene exchange, where the trading pair of BCHSV/USDT gathered a volume of $96  million. The exchange was closely followed by ZBG exchange, where the trade accounted for 13.62% of the entire trading volume.

According to the chart released by Trading View, a massive green candlestick can be observed. The chart also indicated that at press time, the candles were charting over the Moving Average [MA]. This suggested that extremely high trading volumes were pegged with Bitcoin SV.

Many in the community have speculated that the surge might be due to a massive dump of the coin in the market, after the token hit stagnation since pumping by more than 247 percent recently. The aforementioned price pump pushed the price of the coin from $53.22 to $250.

Previously, it has been suggested that the major pump witnessed within the Bitcoin SV ecosystem might be laden with market manipulation, implying the participation of illicit entities in the conduct of a “pseudo-pump” of BSV’s market. Further, the de-listing of BSV by major exchanges such as Binance may have made it more susceptible to sudden price movements, according to some.

At press time, Bitcoin SV was positioned 8th on the cryptocurrency charts. Despite the pump however, historical trends suggest a major price correction may be in the offing too.
