  • From JohnkimLTC:

    I can honestly say I have a different relationship with my #Litecoin. My blood sweat and tears went into acquiring and hodling it. I feel like I’ve earned every “Łite”
    that I have in my possession. The success of $LTC means so much more than the usd value of it.


    Satoshi is a risk for bitcoin. Litecoin doesn’t have this risk. Charlie lee sold his litecoin below the current price of litecoin today. Charlie lee continues to work on litecoin because he loves the project & wants to see litecoin become a global currency. Its his baby.

  • From sethforprivacy:

    6/ Thinking that coins that I could have “a lot” of would be more valuable long term.This pulled me into clear scams like TRON along with zombie chains like Litecoin. Once you realize that Bitcoin etc. are divisible it helps get past the “I need 1mil coins!” phase.
