The upswing comes as most of the market has seen growth today, but as has often been the case, Litecoin is standing out.
In somewhat related news, Litecoin’s creator, Charlie Lee, took to twitter today to show off some statistics that highlight how mining Litecoin should still be profitable after the upcoming halving event, when block rewards are reduced by 50%. According to these stats, after the event miners could still make upwards of $2.65 in profit per day, assuming a maintained low cost of electricity.
