Litecoin leading the pack again: LTC breaks $95 as best top 10 performer

Litecoin is again leading the cryptocurrency market today, rising 10% this morning to over $96. LTC is the best performer in the top 10.

Since February, Litecoin has constantly been the frontrunner of the crypto market. In almost every run up, LTC was the first top coin to make significant gains. In August this year, the Litecoin halving is coming, the decrease of the block reward from 25 to 12.5 LTC. A halving in both Litecoin and Bitcoin is usually preceded by a run up.

The best performer in the top 20 is NEM, that is up 15%. In the meantime Bitcoin is trying to break $8000 again, currently trading at around $7985. Ethereum is back above $250 following a 6% growth over the last 24 hours.
