Litecoin [LTC] posted massive gains and came out as the biggest winner among altcoins as the week came to an end. The digital coin led the altcoin pack towards another bull run.

The latest pump, however, drove the crypto-asset’s price over $100-mark for the second time this year. Subsequently, the silver coin took over EOS to secure its position as the fifth largest crypto-asset by market cap.

As the crypto market started embracing green, many analysts in the space are of the opinion that the “altseason is upon us”. With the latest upswing, LTC became the fourth coin in the top ten with a three-digit valuation after Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], and Bitcoin Cash [BCH].

At press time, the coin was priced at $103.4 after surging by 7.93% over the last 24 hours. LTC registered a market cap of $6.40 billion and a 24-hour trading volume of $6.14 billion. Additionally, the digital coin rallied by 17.52% over the past week.

Litecoin was trading highest on Coineal via the trading pair LTC/BTC, accounting for a volume of 11.98%. The crypto-asset exchange was followed by EXX, which held 8.48% of the trading volume via LTC/USDT.

The upcoming Litecoin second halving event, scheduled for August 2019, and institutional adoption of the crypto were attributed to the series of bull domination this year.

Litecoin crashed soon after June 2018 and hit the lowest point at $30 earlier this year. The coin’s market recovery was resisted by bears as it was juggling within the range of $85-$90 before breaking the much-anticipated $100-mark.
