This can be expected in the short term

Since it is still too early to look at the 2025 peak, AMBCrypto wanted to check the current state of the coin to see what can be expected in the short term.

The good news was that LTC, like several other cryptocurrencies, also saw an upward trend over the past 24 hours, with its price increasing by more than 3%.

At the time of writing, LTC was trading at $64.73 with a market cap of over $4.8 billion, making it the 21st largest crypto.

Things could get even better soon, as the coin’s NVT ratio dropped last week. A drop in the metric means an asset is undervalued, which signals a price increase.

However, not every metric was optimistic. For example, the MVRV ratio registered a decrease. Velocity also decreased in the last few days, meaning that LTC was used less often in transactions within a certain time frame.
