What is Litecoin (LTC)?

Litecoin (LTC) is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that enables near-instant and low-cost money transfers. Creation and transfer of LTC coin is decentralised and is based on an open-source cryptographic protocol. The Litecoin blockchain began in October 2011 as a hard fork of the Bitcoin block. As such, the Litecoin protocol is almost identical to Bitcoin protocol.


They main differences between Litecoin and Bitcoin are as follows:


  • Blocktime in Litecoin blockchain is ~2.5mins vs. ~10mins for Bitcoin.
  • The supply limit of Bitcoin is 21 million, whereas the maximum supply of Litecoins is 84 million.
  • While Bitcoin blockchainuses SHA-256, Litecoin uses scrypt as the hashing algorithm. This choice of hashing algorithm makes it easy to mine LTC using any consumer-grade hardware.


About Litecoin Futures Trading

Litecoin (LTC) Futures is an agreement between two parties to buy or sell LTC at a predetermined future date and price. The futures contract derives its value from the underlying cryptocurrency, Litecoin in this case. Thus the price of a Litecoin futures contract moves broadly in sync with the price of LTC.


Trading futures is thus an alternative to actually buying or selling the underlying crypto (aka spot trading). In spot trading, you can make profit by buying LTC low and selling it at a high price. This trade however works only in a bull market, i.e. when LTC price is going up. However, in a bear market, there is no trade possible in spot trading. Furthermore, leverage trading is not possible in spot trading.


Trading Litecoin through futures offers several advantages over spot trading of Litecoin, namely ability to both long or short and get access to leverage.

Benefits of Litecoin Futures Trading

Trade Profitably in All Market Conditions

You can profit from rising LTC price by going long Litecoin futures. And, when LTC price is falling, you can make profits by going short. This feature of futures trading enable you to navigate all types of market conditions profitably. Compare this with directly buying LTC. When price is falling, you can either sell your LTC or suffer losses. In spot trading, there is no way of profiting from falling prices.



Risk Hedging

If you are a HODLer, you can still use futures to mitigate price risk. Say, you hold LTC. You can mitigate the risks you face when LTC price is falling by going short Litecoin futures. In this case, a short futures position acts as a downside protection by effectively locking the $ value of your portfolio without the need for selling your LTC. Judicious use of futures as hedge can make you a better and stronger HODLer.


Use Leverage to Amplify Returns  

Leverage enables you to open positions that are bigger than your trading capital. If you can open a position that is 20 times bigger than your trading capital, then you have 20x leverage available to you. The maximum allowed leverage for LTC futures listed on BTCC Exchange is as high as 100x. There are two ways of thinking about leverage:


  • Leverage as capital efficiency driver : For opening a position of a given size, higher the leverage lower the trading capital required. The leverage in spot trading is always 1x, while it is 3-4x in margin trading. This means futures is 20 to 100 times more capital efficient than spot or margin trading.


  • Leverage as a returns amplifier : Because in a leverage trade position size is greater than the capital deployed, impact of prices moves gets magnified. The return on capital deployed is leverage times the price return. This means that you can amplify your trading gains the effective use of leverage.


If Litecoin price increased from $74.72 to $75.65 your return would be equal to:


Advantages of Litecoin futures trading can be summarized as follows:
