Litecoin (LTC) is currently trading at around $44 after a 4% drop in price since last week. However, despite the overall downtrend, LTC has remained stable over the last 24 hours.

While Bitcoin was seen as “digital gold” and a potential long-term store of value, Litecoin was created to be “silver” and used for everyday purposes. In essence, Litecoin possesses many of Bitcoin’s features, but is “lighter” to carry and faster to transact. Lee believes the goal and mission of Litecoin is to be a live testnet for Bitcoin.

Litecoin (LTC) has recovered impressively over the past four days following last weekend's nervous descent to $43. It has now risen by more than 11% since November 24, with price currently residing at around $48.39.
