Litecoin beats other altcoins to rank second in BitPay transaction count

Litecoin, the 13th largest crypto by market capitalization witnessed a massive spike in its transaction count on payment processor BitPay. One of the world’s largest crypto payments processors, BitPay released its statistics for the last six months.

Based on data from the crypto payment provider, Litecoin ranks second to Bitcoin in transaction count.

Litecoin ranks first among all other cryptocurrencies sans Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), USD Coin (USDC) and XRP. Litecoin’s increasing popularity is coupled by higher accumulation of the altcoin by large wallet investors in the network.

Litecoin price could breakout soon

Litecoin yielded 11.5% gains over the past month, outperforming other altcoins post the FTX exchange collapse. Based on the chart below, the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $68.89 and 50-day EMA at $67.44 are acting as support for altcoin.

Litecoin price is likely to face resistance at $85.03 in its uptrend and the target for the altcoin is $101.50.
