As the FTX-induced devastation in the cryptocurrency sector continues, Litecoin (LTC) has held its own and even climbed over 10% on November 22 to be one of the crypto markets’ top gainers.
The ascent of Litecoin seems to have piqued some interest, given the current climate in the cryptocurrency market, and investors are seemingly on the lookout for the next levels to monitor.
Notably, the crypto community at CoinMarketCap, using the Price Estimate tool, sets the price of Litecoin to trade at an average of $58.36 by December 31, 2022, according to the data retrieved by Finbold on November 22.
If the community’s predictions, which result from 317 votes cast by press time, materialize, they would represent a decrease of $11.95 or -16.99% to the current price of $70.01.

LTC price analysis
Economist and crypto trader Christopher Inks highlighted on November 22 that Litecoin might potentially rally another 45-50%:
“Litecoin found support and rallied off the HVN area of the 5 year range in June. Breaking out above the local swing high at 73.29 will give the rally some legs to the tune of around 45-50% at least. $LTCUSD”
