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 line with dataprovided by Bitinfocharts, over $100bn was despatched over the community within the 2019 interval.

This was a lower from 2018, primarily resulting from 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 development 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 knowledge as deviating from imply market circumstances would see a roughly equal worth switch between 2018 and 2019. This may occasionally converse to a wider base degree curiosity from non-speculative community contributors. This base seems to have strongly fashioned at round $100m/day inside a gentle quantity of ~21,000 transactions.

Because of this the typical transaction worth has discovered comfy help at ~$5k/transaction. Having a look at median transaction values nonetheless, tells us that that is being pushed up by a handful of very giant worth transactions because the median is way nearer to $50/transaction. It might be cheap to hypothesise that almost all of worth is from a small variety of excessive web price people, funds or companies.

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

This does imply nonetheless, that there’s a good distance but to go and plenty of room for the crypto markets to develop, if they’re to realize that objective of displacing the outdated guard.
