Litecoin (LTC) founder Charlie Lee recently shared his bullish outlook on the cryptocurrency, stating that it holds significant value even though it remains a fraction of Bitcoin's (BTC) worth. Lee created Litecoin as a digital silver to complement the pioneer cryptocurrency and emphasized the unique strengths that set it apart.

In a recent tweet, Lee outlined several reasons why Litecoin is a valuable asset, including its low transaction fees, compatibility with Bitcoin's protocol, similar game-theoretical attack surfaces, its dedicated ASIC miner network, fair launch, and an 11.5-year track record of reliability with no downtime.

Lee predicted that Litecoin could reach new heights, stating that the digital silver could eventually climb to 10% of BTC's value. He pointed out that the current market values Litecoin at around 1% of Bitcoin's worth, which he considers "accurate." According to Lee, several key features could bolster Litecoin's value, including its higher throughput, improved scalability, increased fungibility, and enhanced privacy. He envisions a possible rise to 0.0125 BTC during the next bull cycle while acknowledging the potential for a downturn to 0.0025 LTC/BTC.

As of May 2, 2023, Litecoin traded at approximately $88, marking a 2% increase against the US dollar. The LTC/BTC pair stood at 0.00307800, with a slight 0.1% gain in the green.

Although Litecoin's all-time high surpassed $410 in May 2021, it lagged behind Bitcoin's meteoric rise to a peak of over $69,000. However, with the factors highlighted by Charlie Lee, the future may hold further growth for the digital silver.

The Litecoin network came online as early as 2011, making it one of the oldest cryptocurrencies in the market. Its presence throughout the years has proven its strong integrity compared to the many altcoins.
