Bitcoin prices remain on the low side, and as a side effect, altcoins are becoming worth less and less every day. A lot of people hope their favorite altcoin can break away from Bitcoin in regards to their value. I for one would love to see that happen as well. Unfortunately, that won’t happen any time soon I’m afraid.
You can argue that Litecoin managed to do so by getting a LTC/USD trading pair on exchanges. Granted, that is one of the best things to ever happen to Litecoin. But is it really giving Litecoin a value unrelated to Bitcoin? Not entirely, which is a shame. Now that Bitcoin remains low, you would expect Litecoin’s price to go up slightly. That isn’t happening.
