Grayscale Adds 174,000 LTC to Its Litecoin Holdings- Price of the Altcoin Unresponsive

According to reports, Grayscale added 174,000 tokens to its litecoin holdings in the past month. This haul pushed its total holdings of the altcoin to 1.44 million. Following this acquisition, which represents 80% of all litecoin that were mined in the past month, the total value of Grayscales holdings of the altcoin is now just over $248 million.

However, following the large acquisition by Grayscale Investments, LTCs price movement appears to be unrelated to changing supply dynamics. For instance, Messari data shows that the altcoin only went above the $200 mark between February 12 and 22. However, since then the price has returned to levels below $200 with February 25 being the only exception. At the time of writing, the token was trading at just above $190.

In the meantime, on Twitter, some users are questioning the altcoins failure to pump following Grayscales massive buying. For instance, one Twitter user, Carolyn Bamberger asks why the price has not pumped. In response, the Litecoin team said:

Large orders like these are usually purchased through an OTC desk as to not immediately impact the market. Some speculate that due to this the supply shock may be delayed.

Still, other users remain unconvinced with this explanation, while a few supporters believe that a price spike will happen soon.
