Over $100Bn+ was transacted on the Litecoin Community in 2019.

The Litecoin community has seen sustained utilization in 2019 regardless of the broader collapse within the majority of the cryptocurrency markets. In accordance with dataprovided by Bitinfocharts, over $100bn was despatched over the community within the 2019 interval.

This was a lower from 2018, primarily attributable to bull market peak in January the place $5bn a day was being transacted. Omitting this exercise within the first half of the yr, it seems that 2019 has seen a slight progress within the common worth transferred every day from ~$200m to ~$300m.

2019 notably noticed Litecoin’s 2nd halving happen which resulted in elevated speculative exercise on the community. Omitting this information as deviating from imply market situations would see a roughly equal worth switch between 2018 and 2019. This will likely communicate to a wider base degree curiosity from non-speculative community members. This base seems to have strongly shaped at round $100m/day inside a gradual quantity of ~21,000 transactions.

Consequently the common transaction worth has discovered snug assist at ~$5k/transaction. Looking at median transaction values nevertheless, tells us that that is being pushed up by a handful of very massive worth transactions because the median is far nearer to $50/transaction. It could be affordable to hypothesise that almost all of worth is from a small variety of excessive internet price people, funds or companies.

Whereas $100bn is a staggeringly massive quantity as compared, it’s dwarfed by conventional cost networks comparable to Visa, which experiences a complete transaction quantity of $11Tn for the 2018 interval. Visa even buries Bitcoin which transacted ~2.5Tn in 2019. In fact the comparability between the 2 is flawed, as Litecoin is a cryptocurrency and Visa is a service for fiat currencies, it doesn’t take into consideration complete worth despatched in $USD and solely offers insights into one space of the bigger market .

This does imply nevertheless, that there’s a good distance but to go and plenty of room for the crypto markets to develop, if they’re to attain that aim of displacing the previous guard.
