- From johnkim77:
I bought #silver in 2017 for $12.I didn’t look at price everyday and just had it in a safe place. It’s $27 now. If you would put your phone down and just treat #Litecoin as silver and just put it away for a while you’ll be fine.
- From jaredctate:
5/7 For #Litecoin which has a max supply of 84 Million there are 344 $LTC for every 1 metric ton of Gold. Thats 93 ounces for every 1 $LTC. So $1855 x 93 = $173,367 $LTC Gold Scarcity parity price. Now we take these GS Parity prices & determine scarcity undervalued multipliers.
- From jaredctate:
7/7 So this means #bitcoin is 20.5x undervalued compared to its Gold Scarcity price parity. #Litecoin is 1,320x undervalued and #DigiByte is 24,759x undervalued when put on par with their true scarcity in the known world. Really insightful.
