Amazon Unlikely To Accept Cryptocurrency

Speculation has been rife in the alternative finance industry that Amazon, one of the largest global conglomerates in the world, will soon be taking an interest in Bitcoin, Litecoin, or some other cryptocurrency.

Litecoin Prediction To Reach $400

As many digital currencies struggle to make back their losses in light of the altcoin crash of early 2018, the news is brighter for Litecoin, which seems set to make massive strides towards consolidating its position in the market. The big news for the currency, and the one that’s prompting the speculation on Litecoin’s future, is the impending launch of LitePay, a new service for processing Litecoin. While no reliable release date has been announced as yet, the smart money is on a launch sometime within the next seven days. LitePay is a third party app, though the Litecoin Foundation...
