The price of litecoin continues to hover near all-time highs, even as the technical advances that sparked its revival are being added to other platforms.
Just a day after miners on the bitcoin protocol effectively agreed to upgrade their software to support a code change called Segregated Witness (SegWit), litecoin is trading at roughly $48, according to data from CoinMarketCap. The relative stability is notable given litecoin's price boomed on the news it would adopt the change, one originally designed to redefine and increase capacity on bitcoin.
