    Lots of people use Litecoin as there main method of transferring crypto because the fees are way less than BTC or ETH.

    If one crypto was going to be used as a substitute currency and payment method, i'd honestly expect it to be litecoin due to low fees and pretty decent mining base. I'd use it for an international transfer if i had any need and ability to tbh

    There are plenty of other alts that offer the same as LTC and have built on that. Dash has instant send, Monero has security, heck even ETN is faster than LTC

    Don't expect to see alt season for a long time yet. This BTC dominance might be the reckoning.
    Trade war with China has seen the pretend internet money flow in to BTC for 'safety'. A few pumps going on today...

    I reckons a bit of correlation between LTC and BCH, LTC has 4 times the supply and roughly 1/4 the price, might be a useful metric for profit taking.

    This is a really good interview with Andreas Antonopolus where he discusses the state of play in the crypto space and what is coming up.

    Doesn't quite help the image that decentralised currency is good eh.

    Is there any pure crypto stores that aren't for illicit purposes? (i'm sure there is, but i'm guessing minimal...). It's a bit hard when the world is fiat and if you want to use your crypto for anything it's all pegged against it's USD value.

    I've gotten off the crypto train. I think the shines worn off and i'm not a whale so i won't be making a profit. Blah blah store of value.

    How do you seize crypto?
    Lol at the massive drug haul:

    Must be at least a $600 worth of ecstasy tablets.

    The police probably asked the drug dealer for the password to access the hardware token, and the dealer was stupid enough to give it to them. Or they have seized the token and can't access the coin, but was told how much was on it.
