However, LTC investors were not having a good time as the coin failed to capitalize on the last bullish market.

To be precise, LTC’s halving will happen in 15 days and 22 hours from the time of writing. As per Nicehash, the estimated date for Litecoin’s halving is expected to happen on 1 August 2023. As we approach the halving date, Litecoin revealed in a tweet that the blockchain just processed its 170th million transactions, reflecting increased usage of the network.

According to the tweet, the update meant that Litecoin was accelerating, adding another 10 million in the last 7 weeks. However, all these updates did not help the coin uplift its price. While most cryptos flourished over the last week, LTC failed to capitalize on the last bull market.

As per CoinMarketCap, LTC was down by over 2% in the last seven days. At the time of writing, it was trading at $94.91 with a market capitalization of more than $6.9 billion.

After an uptick, LTC’s MVRV Ratio plummeted sharply, which might have played a role in not allowing the coin’s price to go up. Litecoin’s open interest started to rise when its price took a sideways path since 15 July. This suggested that the current sluggish price action might continue. However, its velocity remained high, suggesting that LTC was used more often in transactions within a set timeframe.

This can be expected from Litecoin

LTC’s MACD revealed that the bears were leading the market. Its Relative Strength Index (RSI) went sideways near the neutral mark. This meant that the possibility of slow-moving price action was likely.

However, Litecoin’s Money Flow Index (MFI) was about to enter the oversold zone. This can increase buying pressure on the coin and, in turn, increase its price over the coming days.
