Cryptocurrency Discounts Part 2: Be greedy!

Do you want to make your first investment in cryptocurrencies or get some cryptocurrency at a massive discount while the market is still low?

“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”

We all know this statement made by Warren Buffett, many in the cryptocurrency space hate this person since he spoke about Bitcoin stating that “The asset itself is creating nothing” and not just that; all this without even being a competent and relevant figure in the blockchain space. But we have to admit that when comes to investments and the mindset to adopt, the statement we’ve cited before about being greedy results the best strategy in order to have good profits from your investments.

  • Total: 50,000,000 INS
  • Max: 50,000,000 INS

2. Litecoin

What’s Litecoin?

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin is an open source, global payment network that is fully decentralized without any central authorities. Mathematics secures the network and empowers individuals to control their own finances. Litecoin features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency than the leading math-based currency. With substantial industry support, trade volume and liquidity, Litecoin is a proven medium of commerce complementary to Bitcoin.The blockchain made ready for business

  • Open Source Software

Litecoin is an open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license which gives you the power to run, modify, and copy the software and to distribute, at your option, modified copies of the software. The software is released in a transparent process that allows for independent verification of binaries and their corresponding source code.

  • Blockchain

The Litecoin blockchain is capable of handling higher transaction volume than its counterpart — Bitcoin. Due to more frequent block generation, the network supports more transactions without a need to modify the software in the future. 
As a result, merchants get faster confirmation times, while still having ability to wait for more confirmations when selling bigger ticket items.

  • Wallet Encryption

Wallet encryption allows you to secure your wallet, so that you can view transactions and your account balance, but are required to enter your password before spending litecoins. 
This provides protection from wallet-stealing viruses and trojans as well as a sanity check before sending payments.

Supply:

  • Max: 84,000,000 LTC

Since this coin is mined, not all the coins are available in the market, which are released as reward to the miners. If we look at Bitcoin price, which has 4 times less supply, we understand that Litecoin price potential is massive and could easily surpass the $1000 mark in the upcoming years.
